Biodiversity of SIRD, Ranchi is one of the best examples of above.
Protecting biodiversity is not merely a matter of emotion or aesthetics. Wild habitats hold the key to our water, soil, food security, health and agriculture. A destabilized environment will finally destabilize our economy and way of life. Visitors can observe fine balance of development with nature in the campus of SIRD, Ranchi.
Inspite of the apparent inhospitable environment around it, substantial biodiversity still exists in the campus. We shall have to preserve whatever greenery is there and attempt to create more and greener spaces in and around SIRD to improve the biodiversity of Ranchi
