A Unique Ethno-ecological Centre!

ebrThe Edhkwehlynawd Botanical Refuge (EBR) is a small Refuge owned and managed by the Edhkwehlynawd Botanical Refuge Centre Trust. The name Edhkwehlynawdr in Toda means the 'place with the magnificent view'. It is located in the Upper Nilgiri Plateau – in the heart of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve – of the South Western Ghats. The EBR field station is located at the Amaggal Reserve Forest near Manjoor. The EBR lies at the threshold of a great wilderness that harbours an immensely rich biodiversity.
