Chatur Ullu in Popular Media

We are actively involved in outreach using popular media and creating nature and wildlife related stories and content. We are constantly in touch with photo-journalists, film-makers, and publishers.

We believe that science should be made available to each and every person in a language they can understand. We try our best to create popular science media based on our research and publicize it through magazines, news paper articles, poems, write ups, blogs, podcasts, graphics, and popular talks.

In case you need content expertise or ideas for your next project, do write to us!

Presenting our Western Ghats research at an Elsevier conference EcoSummit 2023 at Gold Coast, Australia | June 2023
A talk I delivered in the prestigious S.D. Vaidya Memorial Lecture Series organized by Indian Society of Landscape Architects (ISOLA) – Mumbai chapter. Here I talk about the significance of darkness for life and nocturnal animals such as owls. A part of the talk concerns with light pollution, a topic, not much discussed at public platforms. I have used some visuals provided by prominent photographers and few educational clips on owls and light pollution. Hope you enjoy the talk! Cover photo is by Neel Sureja and owl portrait collage by Kamlesh Mirkale. Thank you ISOLA team for the wonderful coordination and organization.
