Meera finds her connection with nature through restoration of degraded lands. She loves the opportunities Forest First has offered her to volunteer and work with communities in Wayanad and Kodagu. She speaks half Latin by uttering scientific names of tree species Forest First is conserving. She finds peace under large canopies of grandmother trees. Converting lands degraded by invasive species into rich biodiversity conservation plots has been her passion. She finds immense happiness in going back to every conservation site to find new evidence of natural regeneration.
