What are ‘native trees’? Native trees are those that grow naturally in an area. They have not been introduced to an area by human beings.

Why are they important? Trees provide food and shelter to other plants and animals. Native trees support the local ecosystem. When this balance shifts, the birds, insects and animals that the trees support get affected.

Check out this short video to understand the importance of native trees in our environment.

 

 

Wow! Who has put this together? Aadya Joshi, a Grade 11 student at the American School of Bombay acted on her passion about restoring native biodiversity and natural ecosystems in urban (city) environments, and founded The Right Green in 2018.

What is The Right Green? The Right Green is organization whose mission is to spread awareness about the ecological importance of native plants (plants from that region) and facilitate action towards creating healthy ecosystems by planting native.

Aadya has developed a database of 15,000 plant-insect relationships for over 2,000 plants in the Indian subcontinent and ranked them according to their ability to support insects and other species.

Why is this important? This will enable gardeners and landscapers to choose such plants that are not only beautiful, but will also support the most biodiversity for their eco-regions. She regularly conducts workshops for school children, adults and municipal authorities, highlighting the vital ecological links between native plants, insects, and birds that are essential for maintaining healthy ecosystems.

In addition to her work with The Right Green, Aadya is also a budding researcher, is a classically trained musician and enjoys the outdoors.
