Environmental pollution is the greatest threat that hovers over the very existence of mankind and life on earth. It is the basic responsibility of every citizen to get involved in activities for the conservation of bio-diversity without which existence of life on earth cannot be ensured in the days to come. In such a scenario, conservation of the environment is the most monumental social service that one can do. Negligence in this regard is criminal, though inadvertent in many cases. A Bio Diversity Club is formed in the college in this context. The club proposes to conduct activities that would inculcate and disseminate environmental awareness among the students, that would in turn extend out to the general public too. Membership is open to all students and staff.
The basic objective of the Biodiversity club is to create awareness of biodiversity conservation and local environmental issues and to create a clean and green consciousness among students through various innovative methods. Preservation and propagation of engendered species is another aim of Biodiversity Club. It also enables the students to be sensitive towards environmental concern and to tackle environmental problems. Environmental learning can increase students’ critical ecological awareness of both local and global environments.
The present club has been constituted with the following members:
- Dr. Rogimon P. Thomas (Co-ordinator) (Botany)
- Mrs. Christine Sara Abraham (Botany)
- Dr. Pushpageetha S (Zoology)
- Dr. Elizabeth Cherian (Botany)
- Dr. Jobin Mathew (Zoology)
- Dr. Smitha S (Biotechnology)
- Mr. Renji Varghese (Biotechnology)
- Mrs. Jisa John (Botany)
