“I started going to Forests at a very young age where you could walk, cycle or even go on a scooter Tiger Reserves, National Parks into Corbett/Rajaji National Park etc.
Have been visiting almost all the Tiger Reserves in India almost on a weekly/fortnightly basis. This kept me in close interaction with wild animals, understanding the intricate relationship with and between the various species at the planet.
This also helped me to contribute into Tiger rehabilitation experiments and also dealing with man eaters as well as rogue elephants. Hope you will enjoy reading stories and watching wildlife films.” - Navin M Raheja
