Explore Wonders of the Natural World
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
In the 20th century, our species is well equipped with all the materialistic things we need for our survival. Our daily life is not focused on looking for the very basic things which are food and shelter. We are more towards accumulating things for our own leisure and to achieve this we are putting huge pressure on our natural world.
We are cutting our forests, killing wildlife and it always seems like the natural world is under our possession. This needs to be changed and we must do something to make our young generation aware, if we need to have a stable natural world.

We have received a year-long grant from the National Geographic Society to conduct a biodiversity documentation project with the children of our village Kandbari, in Palampur, Himachal Pradesh
Let's Observe Nature
Do insects, birds, trees, flowers, and other things in your surroundings make you curious? Do you click lots of photographs of the natural world and don’t know what to do with them? As a parent do you think your kid spends more time outdoors with the natural world rather than friends? If yes, why not extend this curiosity and love for nature into something productive? Life Meets the Lens gives you an opportunity to share your inquisitiveness with the world and also to win exciting prizes.
City Nature Challenge
Invented by citizen science staff at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (Lila Higgins) and California Academy of Sciences (Alison Young). The City Nature Challenge is an international effort for people to find and document plants and wildlife in cities across the globe. It’s a bioblitz-style competition where cities are in a contest against each other to see who can make the most observations of nature, who can find the most species, and who can engage the most people.
