A conservation champion in the making, thank you Babu for your total dedication

Namaste, Jack here.  I’ve had a few people message me saying they want to read my blog but not at Facebook (fully understand many people don’t like to use Facebook) where I do have some posts that are not here.  We’re streamlining our online platforms including here at wildleopard.net as well as at wildtiger.org, hopefully this will be finished soon.  Many thanks to those who care about these issues and take the time to read these blogs and updates.  You can contact me directly at jk@wildtiger.org

TRULY WALKING THE WALK, A PASSION FOR HIS TASK, CARE ABOUT HIS COMMUNITY… As we update our online platforms, this guy will get a strong mention. Nirajan Chhetri (Babu) in an age where so many talk the talk, he truly walks the walk. Over the last year and a half it’s been a great pleasure to work with Babu, watch him learn, see him grow. Above all it is his dedication to the task which is something I can really rely on. He has been a tremendous aid in leopard rehabilitation work and I’m really confident in his ability now to understand how to keep communities understanding and safe when there are leopards in the area. We’ve supplied a motorcycle and camera trap equipment among other gear plus Babu has been a pleasure to deal with in hours of training and implementation often in testing and sometimes dangerous situations. He truly listens to every word, which in this day and age is a minor miracle. Many thanks to our gear guru and collaborator, Bernd Hirthe, for supplying Babu with a laptop. There’s a long way to go with this, much more to be developed, learnt, a lot of hard work ahead but this is progress. It does however require people with the right stuff (one hotspot at a time) and this guy has that in spades. Thank you Babu, keep going, we will win…
