Welcome to Kālinga Mane

Kālinga Centre for Rainforest Ecology(KCRE) is an environmental education organization that opens doors of opportunities to people irrespective of professional or educational backgrounds to learn scientific tools of conservation through workshops and camps. Since 2012, KCRE has served as an entry point, where one meets nature, experiences its beauty, understands the harmony, get educated and makes a conscious decision to act green!

Upcoming Workshops

Experience - Kalinga Mane

KCRE is among the few research sites that welcome people to engage in direct conservation. Not only does one get to experience nature in its most pristine form but also an opportunity to delve deeper by learning about life in the rainforests. With researchers willing to share and educate, every moment spent here takes one beyond a mere rainforest experience.

People are welcome to visit throughout the year. Prior reservation is necessary in order to arrange logistics (not a simple affair given we are nestled a bit deep in the forest).

Learn- Workshops

Each one of us at the Kalinga Centre for Rainforest Ecology have gone through this soul-cycle and believe that if people are introduced and empowered in a right way to act for our environment they will become the change that we are in need of today. Interacting and working with the best talents from respective fields ensures sharing of knowledge which forms the core aspect of every educational workshop and camp at KCRE.

Involve- Volunteer

If you are a wildlife student, a researcher or just someone who has more than average interest in environment conservation come volunteer with us.

Research Projects

From studying the most iconic snake species of the world – the King Cobra to the smallest of insects, KCRE has been the field station and homes for many researchers in the country and for researchers abroad. A team of experts lead various projects at KCRE and at our offsite remote locations in India and South East Asia.

The place, the people, the paradigm

kalinga mane
Kalinga mane, is nothing like you have experienced. And once is never enough, you have to come here every season and spend atleast 4 days to take it all in. And everytime it is predictably suprising. Nothing but the best of the western ghats.
