Snake-bite Mitigation

Most people believe that killing snakes will keep them safe. Thousands of snakes are killed every year but we still have 46,000 deaths per annum. Clearly, this slaughter isn’t working. Why? The most responsible species (spectacled cobra, common krait, Russell’s viper and saw-scaled viper) are highly adaptive and are found in higher densities in agricultural landscapes due to the high availability of food – rats and mice

Crocodile Conflict Mitigation

The majority of crocodilian species do not pose a serious danger to people, although like any other wild animal, they will bite when provoked or surprised. A handful of species however are undoubtedly potentially dangerous and are responsible for several fatal and non-fatal attacks annually. If we objectively analyze the reasons behind these attacks, we may be able to minimize them and hopefully convince people that crocodilians are worth keeping around.

Urban Wildlife Rehabilitation

Wildlife rehabilitators help concerned people decide whether an animal truly needs help. Young birds and mammals should be returned to their families if at all possible; even well trained rehabilitators cannot replace biological parents. Rehabilitators provide instructions on how to reunite wildlife families, keeping the safety of the animals and the rescuers in mind, and they can suggest humane, long-term solutions.

Wildlife Roadkill Mitigation

Roadkills are severely underreported and severely underestimated but pose a huge threat to wildlife. Landscapes are changing so fast that it does not give resident wildlife a chance to adjust to the changes. Village access roads are being developed as tar roads, local roads are turning in to highways, various irrigation canals are coming up fragmenting habitats. All this is happening way too fast, and way too much. All this is resulting in wildlife roadkills, including vulnerable and endangered species.

Wildlife expeditions

We go to diverse habitats, from arid scrub forests to western ghats to mountain forests (Himalayan foothills) of Northeast India. We stay in camps and huts with the native folks. We eat local food. We explore the habitats looking for herps mostly, but we often come across other taxa. We try to experience nature in its purest form. We work in non-protected areas within biodiversity hotspots, where native people and wildlife share the habitats. It is critical to establish a sustainable coexistence model that can help the both people and wildlife.
