CARL ZEISS CONSERVATION AWARD 2013

CHIEF NATURALIST OF JLR KARTHIKEYAN SRINIVASAN WINS CARL ZEISS CONSERVATION AWARD 2013

 

The soft-spoken Karthikeyan.S,  is our Chief Naturalist at the Jungle Lodges and Resort (JLR), is someone who lies low, much like the wildlife he works very hard to protect.

Karthik, as he is popularly known, has devoted practically his entire life to the pursuit of knowledge about Nature in all her forms. After years of wandering over hill and dale in the then extensive forests surrounding Bangalore, he spent 13 years at the World Wide Fund (WWF) for Nature – India before moving to JLR in early 2006.

Right through his life, he's been very interested in passing on his knowledge to others as well, and inculcating the dos and don'ts of being a naturalist, to both adults and children. "It has been my constant endeavor to create awareness among people – young and old alike," he says. " I have done this for a period spanning over two and half decades through walks, talks, film screenings, workshops and nature camps. I hope I am able to continue with this for as long as I can."

Karthik, runs the Naturalists Training Programme (NTP) regularly at JLR and also trains IFS Officers in Eco-tourism,  he is the best advocate for making people aware that there is more to wildlife than the megafauna like Elephants, Tigers and Leopards. He is pushing people to admire smaller, albeit important, organisms like ants, spiders, beetles and butterflies. Karthik is preparing a whole new generation to admire the myriad diversity in nature.

The management of JLR congratulates Karthik on the bagging the prestigious Carl Zeiss Conservation Award 2013.
