The School of Ecology and Environment studies conducted a field trip to Rajgir (Pant) Wildlife Sanctuary on September 24, 2016. The purpose of the visit was to demonstrate data collection techniques used by researchers for biodiversity assessment. During the trip students were shown how to conduct sign and line transect survey for the assessment of mammal population in the area. The students also experimented with camera trapping and latest handheld navigational devices, which are the essentials of field research in biodiversity assessment and conservation.
A brief interaction with forest officials was also organised so that the students could learn about the forest and wildlife management initiatives taken in the sanctuary. The trip was led by Dr. Riddhika Kalle.
