Herpetology Expedition – Wayanad
18 May, 2018 - 20 May, 2018
Let’s explore the beauty of amphibians and reptiles together!
If you have aversion about amphibians and reptiles, kindly check the reasons. Most of the time, they rooted from the ‘ignorance’. Do we really value their presence in the biodiversity? If not then, there is a serious problem about our attitude towards nature. They do play a colossal role in maintaining the biodiversity. We wish to interact with you about these beautiful denizens of biodiversity, let’s explore it together.
This is a specially designed program to share knowledge about the amphibians and reptiles through interactive sessions and dedicated fieldwork. There will be brainstorming sessions on their identification, ecology, behaviour and natural history coupled with ample opportunities to have an encounter with them in the wild. There will be field outings and one can explore their potentials to photograph these denizens in natural habitat.
Learning is always fun when it is interactive!
