Angie’s first solo international adventure took her out to the jungles of Borneo in her late teens, where, on arriving in Asia she hitch hiked her way into the depths of Central Kalimantan via motorbike, car and boat. It was here that she secured her first wildlife research post helping to protect the endangered orang-utan. She has continued to support wildlife conservation projects including helping to develop non invasive methods for monitoring wildlife and in particular, the Arctic polar bear and the Mongolian Gobi bear.
Nirmal U. Kulkarni’s calling card would read something like this: Field ecologist, conservationist, photographer, Director (Ecology) of Wildernest Nature Resort, an ecotel in the Chorla Ghats (Goa), co-ounder of Goa based eco-store Earthworm, Chairman of the Madhei Research Centre and promoter of HERPATIVE, a study initative on Herpetofauna. Phew! Not much then. He’s also found time to discover two new species known to science!Read more
From the soul of the steppe nomads, Tulga grew up in the Gobi area of Mongolia where giant sand dunes, camels and, according to Tulga, the most hospitable people in the world live. Tulga likes to cheer up his “Wind Horse” (spiritual mind) by riding hardy Mongolian horses rather than going to the monastery to pray. In his career he has summited Mount Khuiten (4374m), trekked across the Potainin glacier, one of the biggest in Mongolia, and cross country dog sled in -40 Celsius.Read more
