Environmental organizations

Tamil Nadu

There are at least 85 widely diversified environmental organizations involved with environmental conservation and environmental education in Tamil Nadu state, South India. These organizations are notable for the diversity of their members and their intended impact groups, ranging from urban to rural, local to national, elementary students to government policy makers and rich to poor. The combined intent of these organizations' efforts is increased awareness of and participation in environmentalism by a broad spectrum of the state's population.[1]

The Ministry of Environment and Forests through its Department of Environment and the Tamil Nadu Forest Department is the primary Government organization planning and implementing environmental policy in the state.[2][3]

Paryawaran Sachetak Samiti, a national level volunteer organisation is organising various movements to protect nature and save environment at grassroot across India since 1993.
