Nandini Velho

As a scientist, field biologist, and conservationist, Nandini’s research is located at the intersections of the biophysical (the natural world), the social (human capabilities), and cultural (society, community, and governance). Over the years, Nandini has collaborated with artists, storytellers, illustrators, local historians, and the community at large to facilitate local communities to engage deeply and participate meaningfully in reclaiming their forests in new ways so that they can build deeper relationships with nature for their well-being. At the Canopy Collective, she is building an inclusive space for storytelling on conservation in India, a space for collaboration, partnership, and design between scientists and young filmmakers from grassroots communities and local forest managers.
