I am an undergraduate student pursuing a degree in wildlife biology and conservation in California. I have worked with exotic animals from alligators to porcupines to leopards for 4 years in order to educate both kids and adults about the wonders of wildlife and what we can do to ensure the future of their survival on this planet. As a volunteer for Wild Cat Education and Conservation Fund, I am engaged in the field of wild predator conservation and the efforts being made to heal the relationship between ranchers/villagers and their local wild carnivores, like snow leopards in the Himalayas. I do believe coexistence is possible with a tremendous amount of work, education and deducation.
