Kaveri Mission launched

Jan 27, 2017 | Research & Conservation

An historic two-day meeting, held in January 2017 and co-hosted by Tata Power and Mahseer Trust in the beautiful surroundings of Lonavala, India, has brought together a unique coalition to enact a wide-ranging strategy with the aim to conserve the endangered hump-backed mahseer from extinction.

#kaverimission will coordinate an interstate effort, including Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu, to implement a number of micro projects to address a broad range of issues that affect the health of the Cauvery River catchment and the rapidly declining population status of this iconic fish, which is endemic to the Cauvery and found nowhere else in the world.
