About CLRI Eco-campus
The campus of CSIR-CLRI right amidst busy Adyar area of Chennai city has a rich campus in terms of its biological heritage. Through this webpage we introduce what the public at large, who for whatever reason have an opportunity to visit our campus, can see in our campus. In the 80 odd acres of land, alongside the research buildings exist 190 odd varieties of trees and shrubs, several species of birds – resident and migratory, butterflies and wildlife that includes spotted deers.
While this campus primarily exists to carryout research and translate S&T findings to improve the economic, environmental and social sustainability of the leather and allied industry, we take the opportunity to showcase how we manage to integrate the natural world with the industrial research. We showcase how our day-to-day problems associated with needs to improve research environment, safety, domestic and research wastes, pests, mosquitos, monkeys and so on are resolved without affecting the natural world in the campus
The eco-campus committee frequently comes out with standard operating protocols that ensures that we work towards peaceful co-existence.
This webpage is a showcase of how our research capacity building programs co-exist with nature and develop a model of sustainable nature - human interactions.
