Kaas in Satara district is one of the main plateaus of flowers in Maharashtra and recently has been declared as a World heritage site. Maharashtra Vruksha Samvardhini had organized a seminar on ‘Conservation of Kaas plateau’ which was leaded by Dr. Aparna watave. “Increased tourism and lack of management lead a serious threat to the plateau.
In order to conserve this plateau proper management is necessary. Local people should be involved in the conservation programme. Ispite of flowers, the plateau is known for rare insects, birds and snakes. Care should be taken that these species do not get harmed”, said Prerana Agarwal. Dr.Watave said “the efforts need to be done to conserve and to develop controlled tourism”
