I am Archana Rajan.
A Business Intelligence Consultant by profession and a wildlife enthusiast by passion.My hobbies include Bharatnatyam, volunteer work and photography.I volunteer as a Spoken English teacher with the N.G.O: ‘Youth for Seva‘ at a Govt. School in Bangalore.
I have fond childhood memories of visiting wildlife sanctuaries with my family. I share my passion for the wilderness with my father. Here’s a glimpse from my rather in-exhaustive wish list:-
1. Sighting humpback whales on a kayak,
2. Tracking tigers and documenting their behaviour in the Indian jungles
3. Sighting polar bears in the freezing realms of the Arctic.
4. Volunteering at animal rescue camps in South Africa etc., to name a few.
I’ve been fortunate enough to visit some prominent wildlife sanctuaries in India.
The Kaziranga National Park, Assam. ( Six times )
Bandipur National Park, Karnataka ( Three times )
Mudumalai National Park, Tamil Nadu (Two times )
Jim Corbett National Park, Uttarakhand ( One time )
Periyar National Park, Kerala ( One time )
The rich and diverse flora and fauna of our beautiful country India is under threat. Wildlife conservation is the need of the hour.
There are approximately 47 endangered species in India. Each one of them plays a pivotal role in maintaining the ecological balance of our forest.
Through this blog, I intend to share my experiences in these national parks. I wish to create a picturesque image of our forests and include animal behaviour insights. I would also like to throw light upon the conservation issue that threatens their existence.
Please feel free to write in if you like what you see. Your feedback and comments are always valuable. In case you are looking forward to exploring the forests and need some help.
