Local Biodiversity Conservation

Under this component 3 programme villages are identified in the Villupuram Division and work will be taken up on watershed basis following the Joint Forest Management concept. The watershed improvement will consist both planting and soil and moisture conservation work. The improvement treatment of each watershed will be done zone wise (eg. Lower, Middle, Upper and Buffer zone) based on the character of terrain and existing vegetation cover. The watershed on a holistic basis irrespective of ownership of land will be treated for effective action.

up.jpg (986 bytes)

a. Lower Zone (90 Ha. /Village)

The lower zone will be planted with the species to meet the need of the village community and also for Long-term benefits. 500 Seedlings / Ha. are to be planted in this zone in addition to soil and moisture conservation measures like gully plugging check dams, contour trenches, vegetative barriers. 450 numbers of seedlings of miscellaneous species will be planted which can meet the need of the local villagers for fruit, fodder, fuel wood and green leaf manure. Some of the miscellaneous species like Illupai, Jack, Naval, Cashew, Sitha, Nelli, Neem, Poovarasu, Sissu, Mungil, Achan, Vagai, Usil etc. will be planted in this zone. The choice of species will be decided after consulting the local people. The ratio of financial allocation per ha. for planting work and soil moisture conservation measures in Lower Zone should be 65 : 35

Buffer zone activities in Programme villages:

This zone comprises both the patta lands and community poromboke waste lands falling within 2-3 km. radius of forest boundary selected to be treated under Tamil Nadu Afforestation Project (TAP) Soil and moisture conservation works and planting along the field bunds will be taken up based on the demand of the local villagers as planned in micro plan. Activities for the forest department, communities and other developmental activities in the programme villages should be done in an integrated manner with the involvement of all other sister departments and Local NGO’s. Asset creating works, which are of priorities and identified in consultation with Village Forest Council can be included in the micro plan before execution.

TAP introduced in 1997, is a step towards assigning an effective role to local communities in managing the forest resources. TAP aims at organizing and adequately empowering local communities in this direction. Under this zone the following activities are carried out.

Milch cow loan

Petty shop loan

Loan to Self Help Groups

Line Department activities

The Tamilnadu Afforestation Project was implemented from 1997-98 in tune with the concept of Joint Forest Management system. The degraded forests were regenerated with the willing support of the masses inhabiting the adjacent villages. The demands of the villagers could not be fully met with the allocation of funds under the TAP scheme only. The involvement of other departments is also required to provide the maximum benefits to the villagers.

The Tamilnadu Government has constituted District Level Committee on Joint Forest Management as per G.O.Ns.No.166 E&F (FR VI) department dated 11.6.98. This committee will have a meeting once in 3 months, with the line department, and at the time the villagers’ needs are being discussed. The line departments also concentrate their activities in these TAP villages. Some of the activities proposed with the Line Department are given below:

Formation of Road

Forming Milk Society

Leveling of agricultural land and summer ploughing

Supply of necessary furniture like Chairs, Tables, Fans etc. to the Schools.

Construction of Class rooms for Schools.

Desilting and strengthening of Panchayat Tanks

Threshing floor

Conducting Vetenary Medical Camps

Conducting free Medical Camps

Supply of Sewing machines, Iron Box etc.

Sancturies

For forming of Kazhuveli Bird’s Sanctuary over an area of 4722.2.05 Ha at Kazhuveli Tank in Vanur & Tindivanam Taluks was notified as Reserve Land under Tamil Nadu Forest act 1882 of section 26 in Villupuram District Gazette dated 16.04.2001.

To declare the above area as Kazhuveli Bird Sanctuary, under section 18(1) of The Wild life Protection Act 1972 is under preparation. It will be rooted through the District Collector, Villupuram for onward transmission through the proper channel to the Tamilnadu Government for notification.

AREA PROPOSED FOR BIRD SANCTUARY 

forest4.jpg (27269 bytes)

up.jpg (986 bytes)

a) Location:

Kazhuveli Tank (Swamp) is in Tindivanam Taluk of Villupuram District. The entire Kazhuveli Tank (Swamp) lies west of Pondichery to Chennai, East Coast Road. The tank is in between 790 45’ to 790 55’ longitude and in between 120 to 120 10’ Latitude. The tank lies adjacent to Bay of Bengal along the East Coast. The Tank is partly in Marakanam and in Vanur Panchayat Unions of Villupuram District. The bottom most of this tank starts in Kellpudupattu Village, which is about 5 to 6 kilometres from Pondicherry and it extends to Marakanam Village.

up.jpg (986 bytes)

(b) Configuration of the Land:

The major portions of this Tank (Swamp) spread over about 15 villages in Tindivanam Taluk as follows:

1. Anumandai , 2. Seyyankuppam, 3. Chettikuppam, 4. Koonimedu, 5. Keelpudupattu, 6. Koluvari,   7.Kaluperumpakkam, 8. Vilvanatham, 9. Anpakkam, 10. Idaicheri, 11. Uppuvelur, 12. Karattai, 13.Devannandal, 14. Kilapakkam and 15. Nadukuppam.

The approximate area of Kazhuveli Tank (Swamp) is about 47 square kilometres. The bottom most of the tank is one kilometre west of Bay of Bengal near Keelpudupattu village and at the top it is about three kilometres from Bay of Bengal. The entire tank is in plains. The soil is sandy having small percentage of clay and humus. The area is not having any good vegetation because of the soil factor. The Tank (Swamp) is lying as a waste land for decades together.

up.jpg (986 bytes)

(c) Climate and Rainfall:

The Kazhuveli Tank (Swamp) is adjoining Bay of Bengal and therefore the climate is moist and damp without the extremes of heat and cold. The climate according to Bangnouls and Gaussan " belongs the 37th Medium tropical transitional bioclimatic." This tank gets its maximum rainwater during the period from July to January every year. The average rainfall in this area is about 1200 mm as per the rainguage data at Marakkanam. In addition to this Rainwater the Kazhuveli Tank receives the sea backwaters from "Vedayanthittu Kazhuveli", which is in the North of Kazhuveli tank. Vedayanthittu Kazhuveli is also a big tank adjacent to Bay of Bengal. The Kazhuveli tank (Swamp) gets the drainage waters from the nearby agricultural lands during the season. The tank will have full water for about six months in a year. The water will begin to reduce from February and March every year till the winter season. The Tank is also having number of feeding channels.

up.jpg (986 bytes)

(d) Vegetation:

Kazhuveli is an old mangrove forest, which has been degraded over a period, of time. There are extensive sedges and grasses in the non-estuarine portion and the aquatic reeds also are seen.

Prosophis juliflora, Barringtonia, Acacia nilotica are the main species found in the flatter areas. In the estuarine area Avicennia marina, Suaveda monica is found.

Mangrove forests are endangered all over the world. Declaration of the area as Birds Sanctuary will help in conservation of this rare fragile ecosystem.

up.jpg (986 bytes)

(e) FAUNA:

An important aspect for which it is sought to be declared as birds sanctuary is the wide variety of migratory waterfowls. Some 71 species of waterfowls are sighted in this area, including 13 species of Anatudal and 30 species of shorebirds. The area holds around 30,000 ducks in winter, 20,000 - 40,000 shorebirds and 20,000 - 50,000 terns during winter.

In March and April as the water level recedes, the lagoon attracts pelicans, herons, egrets, storks and ibises.

A list of avifauna recorded by Honorary Wildlife Warden of Villupuram District Dr. Rauf Ali regarding the faunal composition of Kazhuveli is enclosed herewith.

up.jpg (986 bytes)

(f) Immigration of Birds:

The area also serves as an important Corridor for the migratory birds which move to Point Calimere during winter. Every year during the months of October to February large congregations of water birds can be seen in thousands in this swamp. Since the swamp is adjacent to Bay of Bengal, large number of birds from foreign countries are coming and staying here in the winter as a refugee place. The conditions and climate prevailing in winter season in this swamp are highly suitable to the migratory birds from the foreign countries. Declaration of the area as bird sanctuary will prevent poaching and destruction of habitat of these migratory birds.

up.jpg (986 bytes)

(g) Tourism:

The above swamp is on Pondicherry to Chennai East Coast Road ( ECR ). The length of this tank parallel to the Pondicherry - Chennai East Coast Road is for about 8 to 9 Kms.
