  • Established in 2001, the Agasthyamala Biosphere Reserve is spread across the States of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Located in the southernmost end of the Western Ghats, the Reserve covers an impressive area of over 3,500 sq.km. Hosting one of the most diverse ecosystems in peninsular India, it constitutes an important biogeographical hotspot within the Western Ghats.
  • As a biosphere reserve, it protects larger areas of natural habitats and includes three wildlife sanctuaries – Shendurney, Peppara and Nayar, as well as the Kalakad Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve. In addition, there are buffer zones that are open to economic uses. Not just flora and fauna, even human communities who inhabit these regions are protected
