Nature conservation through field protection, awareness, education and scientific based action is the mission of Sahyadri Nisarg Mitra .

Sahyadri Nisarga Mitra was born 1992 when a few likeminded people wanted to do more than sigh away their pangs of conscience about the rampant abuse of nature. Conservation of Indian Swiftlets on Vengurla Rocks,  ecological surveys on White bellied sea eagle in districts Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg, Vulture Conservation, Marine Turtle Conservation, are few of their flagship conservation projects.  SNM’s  current projects cover Mangroves, Fresh water turtle conservation. SNM also undertakes regular research projects like breeding biology or status survey of different birds species in Konkan.

Dedicated efforts, scientific methodologies and the right use of technology have been key parameters in the success of SNM’s projects.
