Green Oscar for Dr Madhusudan


“Noted Indian wildlife biologist, Dr MD Madhusudan, Director of Nature Conservation Foundation has won the Whitley Award, considered the 'Green Oscar' at a glittering ceremony held at the Royal Geographical Society in Karnataka Wednesday. While Sudipto Chatterjee and Supraja Dharini received associate awards. He and his team won it for his work in the Western Ghats to combine science with practical conservation action to resolve man-animal conflict.”

Great Job Dr Madhusudan and Team!! Hats Off to you all…

The idea of "green oscar" is brilliant. Congratulations to Dr.Madhu and his team. I am happy for them that their hardwork has been paid off.
Thanks to you too, I did not know something like that actually existed.

Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy. Action is no less necessary than thought to the instinctive tendencies of the human frame.
