I am an environmental management graduate having led research expeditions in Nepal for the past six years. I also took a Post Graduate Diploma in wildlife conservation practice from WildCRU, University of Oxford, U.K., in 2014. I have been involved with Nepal Owl Festival from its first celebration. Along with the festival, being involved in conservation camps and workshops on owl conservation have sharpened my skills in working with people from different backgrounds. These interactions have also made me realize the importance of awareness programs on conservation. I have also co-authored two books on owls with Raju Acharya.
