Bamboo Rustles

I am currently finalising my Masters in Environmental Science from Bharati Vidyapeeth in Pune. With a profound passion for wildlife conservation and experience in this field for six years, I have delved into the intricacies of this field, recognizing the critical significance of ecological restoration.

Throughout my academic journey, I’ve immersed myself in understanding the delicate balance of ecosystems, particularly focusing on species preservation. My thesis work stands as a testament to my commitment, as I meticulously investigated the impact of urban lights on bat populations and delved into the repercussions of forest fragmentation. These subjects allowed me to uncover the subtle yet profound ways human activities influence the natural world, underscoring the need for mindful ecological planning.

My experiences in wildlife conservation have nurtured a fervent interest in the realm of ecological restoration. Witnessing firsthand the repercussions of habitat degradation, I am determined to contribute to the restoration of ecosystems that have suffered due to human intervention. With an eye toward species conservation, I envision a future where the delicate interplay of flora and fauna can thrive once again, rejuvenating the Earth’s natural harmony.
In essence, my journey through academia and hands-on experience has not only deepened my understanding of environmental science but has also ignited an unyielding desire to foster sustainable coexistence between humanity and the natural world.
