Facilitate the setting-up of a system of biodiversity mapping

The Sane Guruji Rashtriya Smarak Trust would like a volunteer to help them with Biodiversity mapping. Since the land around the centre is full of a variety of plants/trees/herbs it would like to map the available varieties.

This could be a very rich source of knowledge as well as ecotourism. This will increase the visitors to the organization and make its work more visible and increase the possibilities of donors and fund-raising.
Also students/botanists can use this place for studies, educational projects, etc. since very few such places are available in the vicinity of Mumbai.

This type of support is available locally but is expensive to access.
