About Business

Sundarvan is a nature discovery centre located at Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India. It is an activity of Centre for Environment Education (CEE), Ahmedabad, which is a Centre of Excellence of the Ministry of Environment & Forests, Government of India.
Sundarvan’s activities with children and youth act as a catalyst in, and stimulate, the process of inquiry into nature. Sundarvan is recognized as a mini-zoo by the Central Zoo Authority, Government of India. It has a collection of reptiles, birds and small mammals. A very popular place with children and youth, Sundarvan receives nearly 100,000 visitors annually. This nature discovery centre was inaugurated by Dr. Salim Ali, the well-known ornithologist, on 28th October, 1978.
Sundarvan’s activities fall into 3 types of programmes: On-campus, Outreach, and Camping.
Nature trail and snake ecology awareness programmes are regularly held for visitors at Sundarvan. Bird watching and other EE programmes are also conducted for various groups on requests.
As part of its programmes on Experiencing Nature, Sundarvan has been organising Nature Camps for the last 30 years at a number of places in Gujarat and other states. These camps are for all age groups. Sundarvan also has its own two permanent campsites: a forest campsite at Bakore in Panchmahal district and a marine campsite at Beyt Dwarka, Jamnagar district, both in Gujarat. Some of the other popular sites are Polo (Gujarat), Mt. Abu (Rajasthan) and Manali (Himachal Pradesh), just to name a few.
The nature camps impart environmental education through field activities and expose people to the therapeutic influences of outdoor living. These camps provide practical experience in living in natural surroundings and instil basic values that promote harmonious interactions with elemental nature. For schools the camps are also an excellent tool for introducing many environmental concepts that are normally taught using textbooks.
