Kadalundi UPSC NOTE

 Why in News

  • Kadalundi, a village on the southwest coast in Kozhikode district of Kerala.

  • Its had about 8 hectares of nutrient-rich inter-tidal mudflats in the early 2000s. 

  • Today, the expanse of mudflats in the estuary of the Kadalundipuzha river has reduced to about 1 hectare. 

  • This too is gradually being covered with sand, depriving prey to thousands of shorebirds that migrate from colder climes in winter to the village.

  • Researchers point out that if the mudflats are not protected and restored.


  • Kadalundi will vanish from the global map as a prominent destination of migrant shorebirds in a few years. 

  • It is the abundance of prey such as polychaetes and crustaceans in the mudflats that attract a wide variety of migrant shorebirds to Kadalundi from places such as Siberia, Ladakh, Mongolia, and Scotland.

  • Now th efforts are on to popularise ecotourism in the Kadalundi-Vallikunnu Community Reserve (KVCR) by widening the expanse of mangroves.

  • The 154-hectare KVCR had less than 50 hectares of mangroves until a few years ago.

  • But these trees that thrive in salt water have proliferated so fast that they currently occupy more than 60 hectares.
