ASAP Species That We Work On
What We Do
Research and conservation are our main focus. Our research on wildlife and biodiversity are primarily targeted towards the non-charismatic plants and animal groups species such as herpetofauna (amphibians and reptiles), small mammals, birds, fishes, insects and habitats associated with them. Research efforts on biodiversity conservation are complemented by exploring the human dimensions interlinked with conservation issues and restoration ecology. Integrating scientific evidence with local context, using both scientific and socio-economic tools and approaches, are important organizational priority.
As an important working thematic area, capacity building, field based activities, information dissemination and environmental advocacy are carried out in parallel with research works. Training and internship to the students of natural science and humanities are one of the regular activities of ENPROSC. We regularly organize training in collaboration with other organizations to train students on the aspects of biodiversity conservation, field biology, research methodology, scientific and popular communication, statistics and data analysis, and geographic information system (GIS). Additionally, we provide opportunity to students and citizen scientists to participate in research and conservation activities as a part of participatory capacity enhancement.
