My Pemakod visit 2007 / 2008

From my visits to this area, I have discovered many medicinal plants growing. Because of the remote location of Pema Kod, there are no schools, electricity or source of income. Also, much of the natural animal population has been depleted due to the lack of knowledge and income for other forms of food. It would be of great benefit to the people and animals of this area if they were taught to recognize, harvest and prepare these plants for medicine as well as to start a plantation from these plants in order not to deplete these sources of medicine. This would allow the people of this area to learn a trade and to earn an income from the resources available to them. It would also protect the animal population as they would then have the resources to purchase food from other areas as well as learning to grow food for their own use.
