Ramnath has been enthralled by nature since childhood. Since then, he has traveled across India to capture inspirational stories that facilitate people’s understanding of India’s rich natural and cultural heritage. At the same time, he has led nature and conservation outreach programs to reach out to thousands of students through Youth For Conservation (YFC), a non-profit initiative founded by Shekar Dattatri, an internationally acclaimed wildlife and conservation filmmaker.
From these and other rich experiences, he has been able to communicate the need for conservation very effectively. Today, he works in a space where visual storytelling, education and leadership converge. He pursues projects that inspire and empowers India’s youth to become ambassadors for nature and environment and conduct storytelling workshops through bookmaking, photo storytelling and filmmaking.
He envisions a world with a nature educator in every community, and with this belief, he founded the Youth Conservation Action Network (YOUCAN).
