Kannur District is situated in the northern part of Kerala state, on the western coast of India. Since ancient times, it had business and cultural contacts with foreign countries like Arabia, Portugal, Netherlands, France and England, due to its location on the Arabian Sea coast. This coastal region is highly populated with traditional methods of agriculture and fishing prevalent; hence there is a heavy dependence on the natural habitat.

Kannur currently faces three major environmental issues, viz.
1. The destruction of mangroves and wetlands
2. The modification of paddy fields
3. Checking of tidal water by a weir-cum-bridge at Kattampally
