Eco-days in November: 12 Dr.Salim Ali's Birth Anniversary
We provide customized employee volunteering opportunities across major cities in the field of environment. We tie up with local NGOs for execution of such activities.
We offer following half/full day activities:
Tree plantation | Clean-up drives (lakes, public parks, forest tracks) | Deweeding | Seed collection | Kitchen Gardening | Development of animal shelter | Tree tagging | Nature trail development | Bund-building | Contour bunding for water conservation.
We ensure our volunteer work as teams. We devise works as per the team strength. Here the volunteers are engrossed in developing nesting material boxes for birds.
We treat our volunteers with a nature trail on whichever location they volunteer. So that they develop compassion for the site where they slog to improve.
Ladybird Environmental Consulting is a social enterprise established in 2014 as Limited Liability Company. We came into business to help people in helping environment. We identify environmental problems and seek corporate and govt. agencies support to resolve them. We are specialists in environmental CSR (corporate social responsibility) and nature conservation. We have highly trained and dedicated team.
We offer biodiversity services for companies, organizations and govt. agencies. So we offer corporates with Employee Volunteering programmes. We also undertake Tree Plantation CSR projects where we develop butterfly habitats. Besides we also conduct biodiversity surveys, conduct wildlife training programmes and development wildlife books and guides.
Nine butterfly habitats under CSR projects where we planted 47250 saplings. 50 employee engagement programmes pan India. Four naturebased mobile apps, 15 nature exhibits, 50 signages, 2 field guides on mangroves, birds and butterflies. Three major training programmes for forest departments. Part of the winning team of the Makeover Design Competition of Maharashtra Nature Park in Mumbai.
A place where any solitary or social insect could check in. Select any of the rooms of their choices whether the crevices for beetles, tunnels for bees, twigs for paper wasps, camouflage spaces for crickets...everybody is welcome here. They could live here for a night or for a hibernation season, mate, breed and raise a family. Everything possible absolutely free. We built Greater Mumbai’s first Bug Hotel through corporate volunteers.
We identify sites where a butterfly habitat could be developed. We enter in to partnership with site partner which could Govt.. NGO or Educational Institutions. We also engage a NGO partner. We develop proposal and pitch ideas to potential clients. We conduct the ground work on getting the project sanctioned which comes to the NGO partner. We then execute the project on behalf of the NGO partner. We do monitoring and reporting for the corporate client on quarterly basis. Our monitoring and evaluation works include status of plant survival rate and increase in butterfly population at the site. In most of our existing sites we have seen an increase of 10-20% butterfly diversity.
We design the project execution as well as the maintenance works of the butterfly site keeping the employee engagement component in mind.
We also include local community engagement wherein we conduct free butterfly awareness programmes for local schools and colleges.
This year we ventured into lake rehabilitation works which largely revolve around enhancing lake ecology through plantation, biodiversity surveys, community engagement and education.
Currently we are working on one such project at Nizampet Lake at Hyderabad, Telangana.
We planted over 5000 plants both inside and outside the lake boundaries. These are largely butterfly, bee, bird and bat attracting plants. We also introduced aquatic plants.
We conduct biodiversity surveys which includes terrestrial as well as aquatic life of the lake. We are also conducting water and soil analysis to monitor the health of the lake.
Salim Ali, one of the greatest ornithologists and naturalists of all time, is also known as the “birdman of India”. He was one of the very first scientists to carry out systematic bird surveys in India and abroad. His research work is considered highly influential in the development of ornithology. The Government of India honored him with a Padma Bhushan in 1958 and the Padma Vibushan in 1976. This genius man died at the age of 90 on June 20, 1987.
