*Gurugram has been facing a water crisis at an alarming rate. The rapid urbanisation and constant pressure on the ground water has led to it being a DARK ZONE.  To address this issue the government has formulated an initiative named Guru-Jal.

It is an INTEGRATED WATER MANAGEMENT initiative under the District Administration of Gurugram, Govt. of Haryana in collaboration with, Hero, CII, TERI SAS etc, to understand the gravity and the root causes of the problem. It aims to address the issue using a systems thinking approach with creative design solutions.

Enjoy the butterflies

Enjoy the world of butterflies

A few larvae may chew some holes in some of your native plants.

Many of the larvae become food for your backyard birds.

The few that make it to adulthood will help pollinate many of your flowers and shrubs.

Not to mention the silent beauty they bless us with as they grace our yards and gardens.

Butterfly life cycle:

A life cycle is made up of the stages that a living organism goes through during its lifetime. 

A butterfly undergoes a process called complete metamorphosis during its life cycle.  

This means that the butterfly changes completely from its early larval stage, when it is a caterpillar, until the final stage, when it becomes a beautiful and graceful adult butterfly.

The butterfly life cycle has four stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult.

Butterflies are complex creatures, not as fragile as you might think.

If you are observant you may see butterflies nectaring, drinking, puddling, courtship dance, mating, laying eggs, migration, and even hibernation.

After several consultations with Uthaan, Forest Department and landscape architects- 

(Uthaan is the NGO who is managing the Thousand Shades Butterfly Park in Gurugram), 

 we have finally drawn up a workable sketch for the proposed water pond in 

one acre of the butterfly park.


Here is the sketch





We expect work to start soon and finish before the monsoon sets in.

This leaves us with very little time to raise the funds required for the project.

As you are aware, the butterfly pond project is being crowdfunded by IndianWildlifeclub.com
