Engaging with people for biodiversity conservation education
It is understood that the results of the work we do as a team in the Northern western Ghats of India needs to reach the people in urban areas. This is being done in a sustained and focussed manner beginning 2013. Talks, walks and power point presentations for clubs, schools, social gatherings are being conducted on a regular basis and I hope this will help create awareness about our work as well as the richness of our forests and their denizens.
I am a wildlife ecologist working in the Western Ghats of the states of Goa,Karnataka and Maharashtra on lesser known fauna in general and herpetofauna in particular. My aim is also to photo document the lesser known fauna the Mahdei Bio region and create awareness amongst the masses of the same.
