Puttur: The UG Departments of Botany, Zoology, and the Eco-Club at St Philomena College  conducted a field visit to explore the diverse interactions among various species, focusing on their structural features, heterogeneous nature, and habitat diversity on 9 May.

At Koyla Farm, students observed dairy management techniques, including cattle kept in a cow barn and managed on open pastures, gaining insights into the economic, environmental, animal welfare, and social benefits of this practice.

They also learned about poultry farming, from egg incubation to the grower chamber.

At the Moodabidre MUSA Plant Gene-Tech Centre, they studied tissue culture practices, learning to cultivate plant cells, tissues, and organs under sterile conditions to quickly produce disease-free plants. The lab visit highlighted the importance of controlled environments in generating healthy plant specimens.

Finally, at Savira Kambada Basadi, students explored the rich cultural heritage of the region, admiring the architectural beauty and historical significance of the temple.

This field visit provided invaluable experiential and contextual learning, helping students connect classroom theories to practical applications and reinforcing their interest in research-oriented work.

Overall, it was an enriching and educational experience that bridged academic learning with real-world exploration, fostering curiosity, inspiring lifelong learning, and supporting the holistic development of students.

Seventy students participated, accompanied by Asst Professors Smitha Alva and Dhanyashree from the Department of Botany and Shree Raksha B.V. from the Department of Zoology.
