Herpetology & 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. Our primary objective is responsible wildlife tourism that helpsĀ conservation of species and their habitats, provides sustenance to local communities that share the same habitats, and advances scientific understanding of the region and its wildlife.

Living in tribal huts is challenging but the joy of living within nature wins.

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.

We document all the species found in expeditions, we take biological notes and photographs. These documentations contribute to science that can help with conservation of species and their habitats. Such reports also help establish the ecological importance of the area.

The species we find are uber cool!

Viridovipera medoensis in Arunachal Pradesh, Northeast India.

 

Sinomicrurus macclellandi in Arunachal Pradesh, Northeast India.

So rare sometimes that it is difficult to identify the species accurately. We only reach the genus and then leave it up to the taxonomists.

Species probably new to science!

It is an adventurous undertaking. You must be ready for all things challenging. The treks are tough, the mountains are steep, the insects are nasty, the scars are real. In the process however you will strongly connect with nature, mountains, jungle, and the wildlife. That, or you’ll really hate us.

Join us for an experience of a lifetime!
