Research and Monitoring

The Sanctuary was formed due to its floral importance and hence, has great potential for botanical studies especially on Strobilanthes sp. Though considered as one of the last abode of the famed “Neelakurinji” (Strobilanthes kunthianus) which blooms once in twelve years, it has been subjected to various types of environmental degradation. There are excellent opportunities for research on eco-restoration and monitoring. The connectivity values are also yet to be studied.
