An introduction to our city's wildlife

With a specific focus on the wildlife and natural beauty of our city, this talk will introduce many of the plants and animals that we see every day around us. The session will focus on stories about them, their relationship to other creatures, and their role in our environment. We will learn about common birds & butterflies, trees and insects, and other little known seldom observed smaller creatures that can be commonly seen around the city as well. The talk will also provide a broad outlook to the biodiversity of India, its forests, and environs. 

It will help further develop an interest in hobbies like bird watching, wildlife photography, travel writing, and nature sketching by kindling an appreciation towards nature and the outdoors by providing a wealth of information on creatures around us.
