Snow Leopard Trust scientists study how wildlife in India’s Spiti Valley responds to the growth of human development in the area.
For the second time in his distinguished career, Dr. Charudutt (Charu) Mishra, the Snow Leopard Trust’s Science and Conservation Director and a trustee of India’s Nature Conservation Foundation, is among the nominees for the Indianapolis Prize, one of the world’s most prestigious conservation awards.
