I have always been fond of animals, and had hoped to become a wildlife veterinary surgeon. However, my field experiences with A Rocha drove me towards the M.Sc. course in wildlife research and conservation. For my Master’s dissertation I studied the factors that influenced elephant ranging behaviour in the resource scarce dry season. In the coming year I plan to study the impacts of anthropogenic activities on freshwater river systems in the Western Ghats of Karnataka.
