Chingchi Itihada

Chingchi is a student from Bangladesh.

As part of an ethnic community, she grew up in close proximity to nature and wildlife. However, she was drawn to conservation after witnessing her community’s societal norm of hunting and consuming wild animals.

To address the issues of unsustainable use of wildlife, Chingchi has been involved in arranging local community meetings to explain the importance of conserving wildlife and currently she is working on surveying and listing the fauna found in Madhupur Forest.
