My name is Satem Longchar and I hail from the state of Nagaland in India. I have a Masters in Wildlife Science from the Wildlife Institute of India, Dehradun, and am involved in volunteer work in projects that cover the North-Eastern states of India, like research on small wild cats in the state of Arunachal Pradesh and the documentation of diverse wildlife in the districts of Nagaland that border Myanmar.
I am an aspiring conservationist with a desire to disseminate the message of wildlife conservation among the tribes in the Indo-Myanmar region. I am interested in doing research in conservation biology especially in relation to community conservation where the best conservation practices are through the communities, as it preserves both the old traditional methods of conservation as well as introduces modern methodology.
From the WildCRU program, I hope to enhance my knowledge of conservation biology and broaden my horizons by interacting with University researchers. This rare opportunity would enable me to apply modern standards of wildlife conservation to my work and motivate me to further pursue a career in the field of wildlife conservation.
