A group of 20 students from Pathways World School Aravali, Gurgaon, India recently visited the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve in South India to support the their coursework for Cambridge IGCSE Environmental Management and Geography.
Here's a glimpse of what they experienced on their week long trip:
“Day 3: We walked through a dense Shola forest while on our way to a Toda village called Bikapathimand. These Shola forests are the remaining ‘rainforests’ which are an excellent nucleus for a tribal village as they are the sources of clear water even in the lean season. It was amazing to see in reality what we always saw in books and helped us gauge the importance of forests as one of the most basic necessities in our lives. On the way to the village we were privileged to have spotted a Giant Malabar squirrel, which is an endemic species found in the Nilgiris and is the biggest squirrel of Asia.
