Thamirabarani River

News: The district administration of Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu along with Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE) are using a ‘hyper local’ approach called TamiraSES to restore the Thamirabarani River.

About Thamirabarani River:
• It is the only perennial river in Tamil Nadu. Its source is in Pothigai Hills of Western Ghats that falls into Tamil Nadu and drains into the Gulf of Mannar (BOB).
• It offers a source of historical and cultural significance to the people of Tamil Nadu and also finds a mention in Sangam Literature.

About Project:
• Aims to restore socio-ecological systems of the river system which will provide conditions for native biodiversity to thrive.
• Five social ecological observatories will be set up as part of the first phase of the project. These will serve as pilots to scale up from the learnings from these sites.
• The idea is to rejuvenate not just the Thamirabarani but all the water bodies in the riverscape of Tirunelveli.
