Mark a email to Peter. I will support you man. I think this will attract Indian Biologists and naturalists which drastically missing on Project Noah. May be professionalism is a issue..!!

Well...it is true that Wild life exploration does not have a true professional outlook in India; but sure there is an increasing awareness about the same. I'm sure we'll catch up with the world soon.

I was thinking of a mission to add here to tag the wildlife in India. Do you know how we can create a mission?

Chaitanya.. We Indians not look at Wild life in professional view..otherwise we have lot wild life to enjoy and being professionally involved. We are not exposed to this field in basic education in India.
