A tiny, dense forest is springing up around Munakkal Azhikode Beach near the Muziris Heritage Project site in Thrissur, Kerala. This Miyawaki forest, planted on a 20 cent-plot of land, is part of a movement aimed at restoring biodiversity and fighting climate crisis. It is said that Miyawaki forests are denser and more biodiverse than any other kind of artificially created forest.

The Miyawaki forest at Munakkal Azhikode Beach is an experimental project taken up by Crowd Foresting for the Kerala Development and Innovation Strategic Council (K–DISC).
