Ex-Situ Conservation And Promotion Of Biodiversity Conservation

Enhancing the global, social and economic value of biodiversity through raising public awareness on its significance is an essential part of biodiversity management and conservation.

In Sikkim, this has been realized through several independent and ongoing initiatives that have increased public support for biodiversity conservation. The objectives of this subcomponent are 
  • to strengthen the ex-situ conservation of biodiversity through promoting public awareness, 
  • to establish self-sustaining ex-situ conservation facilities by obtaining public support for their management and maintenance, 
  • to establish a centre for forest and biodiversity knowledge generation, management, and dissemination.
