Gargi: Glad to be with you, Spiffy! I work as a project manager with the Counter Wildlife Trafficking project of WCS-India. I broadly develop conservation interventions to address illegal wildlife trade (IWT) that happens at and through the northeast region of India. This region falls under the Indo-Burma biodiversity hotspot and is home to several commercially sought after species, many of which are endemic! IWT brings with itself several critical issues such as local extirpations of species, introduction of zoonosis, threat to national security, etc. I work in partnerships with relevant stakeholders such as enforcement agencies, local communities, and educators to raise the profile of IWT, to build their capacity to counter IWT, and develop research to better understand IWT.
