Justin Peter Speaking at Orillia Naturalists' Club

Topic: A Naturalist’s Rambles in India

India presents the naturalist with some of the greatest contradictions. Much of the country’s wildlife faces an uncertain future while the human population grows, yet many wild species thrive. As expedition leader and child of the diaspora, Justin has visited India several times and will share some of his experiences and observations during this illustrated talk.

After introducing us to the “look and feel” of this land, he will focus on India’s western regions, where his roots are – an area little visited by outsiders and home to some of its most interesting
and uncanny habitats and wildlife.
