Abhisheka is an Artist, Ecologist and Nature educator. Growing up in the garden city of Bangalore and spending vacations at her grandparents’ place in the Western Ghats of Karnataka naturally helped Abhisheka develop a deep interest in nature. Love for animals and the curiosity and interest to know more about wildlife led her to get involved in Urban Wildlife Rehabilitation since her student days. She has had the opportunity to live and work in close proximity with urban wild animals while she was involved in urban wildlife rescue and rehab for more than a decade. Abhisheka has several years of experience working as a wildlife researcher as well as a nature educator with research institutes like ATREE and BNHS and her research work was focused on wetland ecology and bird migration studies. She is currently part of the Education and Public Engagement team of NCF with the Early Bird Programme.
