India has all different states with different climatic conditions, political changes and cultural and aesthetic values. Gujarat is one of the industrial, cultural states of India. It comes under semi-arid conditions; it has longest coastlines, desert, evergreen forest and is full of natural resources. As a human nature Gujarat is one of the 3rd largest states who pay tax and it is the industrial hub of India. However, some conservation and restoration practitioners try to conserve or protect the natural ecosystem with traditional knowledge and seeds banks. According to me, the execution of ecological systems focuses on products or services desired by people, with emphasis on marketable products. Resource managers learn just enough about ecosystems to maximize the production of these commodities. This presentation will give you brief idea about the very few people who are actually engaged with the restoration activity like , Agroforestry, environment regeneration, Ecological Landscape, Grassland restoration (Banni Grassland), land (Soil) restoration (Organic farmers) , work with indigenous people, indigenous seed bank, native plant species nursery, Wetland , mining restoration, compilation of Traditional knowledge. This is the beginning of restoring the natural ecosystem in Gujarat state of India.
