Nirmal Kulkarni at Students Conservation Science Conference 2013
It was with a great sense of joy and achievement to participate int Students Conservation Science conference 2013 at Bangalore. The Mhadei Research Centre as well as the Hypnale Research Station had their presence there. I gave a plenary talk on Private sanctuaries as new strategies for conservation and it was well received. The icing on the cake was meeting stalwarts in conservation, young ecologists and lots of friends.
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.
