Ecological and Environmental Issues in the Context of Lakshadweeps Development

Dr N S Sumamol, Suresh Ayyappan Kunnath


Abstract: The spectacular natural beauty of Lakshadweep is related to its location in the open sea fringed by large lagoon and a coral reef ecosystem. Because of this coral reef ecosystem, the ecology of this group of island has become distinctly different from that of other islands and it is very much vulnerable fragile. The coral reef ecosystem protects the islands from sea erosion by breaking the sustained wave action and considered the life line for the continued existence of the islands. The coral reef ecosystem is intrinsically hardly but it can be damaged or destroyed by major physical onslaught on it or by different kind of pollution, caused by the acceleration of diverse economic activities necessitated to sustain the growing human and cattle population of the islands. Thus, to sustain the natural beauty and also the very existence of the islands in its natural form, the ecosystem has to be protected by all means and in this context the developmental activities have to be so planned and formulated that they cause minimal damage to the islands ecosystem and the pollution of environment both on the land mass and sea around.
