Your host



Wild Otters is a wildlife conservation entrepreneurship based out of Goa, India. We are interested in various aspects of conservation biology with a particular interest in communicating conservation issues and science to the public and engaging people in participatory approaches to conservation, including habitat restoration, wildlife monitoring, and raising awareness. I have experience working as an ecologist in Africa, Asia and Australia. Atul (my co-host) and I are Full Members of the IUCN/SSC Otter Specialist Group.

Where you'll be

We will meet outside the Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary. Please arrive on time as all of us will then proceed to the WILD OTTERS field base. Our research center is in a secluded spot on the island surrounded by abundant wildlife which in itself is an experience. Once we have built the raft we will take you to the backwaters which is teaming with bird life and you might even spot an otter.
