Sigur Nature Trust
The Sigur Nature Trust is a private reserve in the center of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, southern India.
We are protecting this small reserve because we believe that we are all responsible for the protection of nature. Humanity’s relentless destruction of nature is unsustainable. According to the famous scientist E.O. Wilson of Harvard University, half the Earth should be kept wild.
The Trust has protected 30 acres of land for the past 50 years. With activities ranging from involvement with local communities, observations, teaching and research, we aim at creating a healthier relationship with the wild.
Attention: the Trust is a not-for-profit organization. We do not in any circumstances rent rooms and we are permanently closed to tourism.
