About me - I am a researcher, ecologist and conservationist based out of India. Nothing excites me more than frogs and birds. The moment I see a bird, people lose sight of me as I run to catch a better look. As the night falls, you can find me roaming near water bodies to spot frogs and document their behaviour and counts.
