ecologue™ is a novel initiative of Jaiji Peter Foundation. It is basically a dialogue between the journalists and the eco-anagers. It has virtually become an yearly summit of green journalists and like minded NGOs who share common concern of conserving Nature. Officials of the forest department, researchers, social scientists and activists are invited to contribute to the progress of the ecologue™.  
 
Currently ecologue™ is being conducted with the support by the Department of Forests and Wildlife, Govt. of Kerala. The participant journalists and activists are exposed to various issues regarding the conservation of the human and Wildlife ecosystems without prejudice or predesigned intentions, allow them to explore deep into the subject matter and evolve a strong attitude towards the need for conservation.
