Swati Sidhu

Project Associate, Education and Public Engagement

M.Sc. in Environmental Biology

I joined Nature Conservation Foundation in 2007. During my time with NCF, I have worked with three different programmes. In the Anamalai Hills with the Western Ghats programme, I spent my time observing hunting parties of birds and studying aspects of leopard biology that may reflect the nature of their relationship with people. In 2011, I joined the Eastern Himalaya programme to explore the relationship between plants and their less obvious agents of seed dispersal and predation, the forest rodents. I am currently working with the Education and Public Engagement team on SeasonWatch project.
