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.
This is a new initiative for capacity development of environmental professionals. We have planned a series of day long entrepreneurial, environmental and educational workshops. This is our way of sharing our knowledge and skills that we picked up during our entrepreneurial journey.
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.
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.
The ozone layer, a fragile shield of gas, protects the Earth from the harmful portion of the rays of the sun, thus helping preserve life on the planet. The phaseout of controlled uses of ozone depleting substances and the related reductions have not only helped protect the ozone layer for this and future generations, but have also contributed significantly to global efforts to address climate change; furthermore, it has protected human health and ecosystems by limiting the harmful ultraviolet radiation from reaching the earth.
Healing the ozone layer is a major accomplishment, but it also proves something important as we look to the future, how to deal with other global environmental challenges. The message is clear: when people and countries around the world come together, united by a common goal, we can solve seemingly impossible problems. That is surely a cause for great optimism as we contemplate what else our global community is capable of!

To celebrate World River Day join us in our activities like lake/river cleanup or making a floating wetland.

The activity starts with the nature trail / lake/river/pond safari then followed by distribution of the tools. The participants than works in groups and collects the plastic waste in and around the lake or making the floating wetland.
