Andaman Nicobar Environment Team

Established in 1993 as an initiative of the Madras Crocodile Bank Trust (MCBT),
the Andaman Nicobar Environment Team (ANET) is a multidisciplinary research hub, environmental conservation and education centre in the Andaman Islands that is now owned and managed by Dakshin Foundation, a long-term institutional partner of MCBT.

ANET’s aim is to address issues of contemporary significance to the islands and to develop effective conservation strategies based on a sound understanding of the islands’ diverse social-ecological systems.

Our research can be categorised within broad interlinked focus themes of marine, terrestrial and community while our interventions focus on livelihood, schools, workshops, training and policy
