Snatching Success From The Jaws of Failure in Tiger Conservation: Philip Nyhus at TEDxColbyCollege

Dr. Philip Nyhus' interdisciplinary research bridges the natural and social sciences to address human interactions with the environment. He is particularly interested in the policy dimensions of human-wildlife conflict and endangered species conservation. His current research includes biodiversity risk assessment, GIS-based spatial models and large landscape conservation. His first passion is protecting tigers and their habitats.

On Febrary 23, 2013, TEDxColbyCollege explored new ideas through the lens of failure, with perspectives from across the academic spectrum and beyond. In our society, success is prized above all while failure is seen as an embarrassment, is taboo. But success and failure are inextricably bound; to laud one while hiding the other ignores that fundamental link. How can we live and work with the concept of failure looming above us? Does fear of it lower our potential? What can it teach us and contribute to our lives? Success and failure are two possible progressions of the attempt, and one is as valuable as the other.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

Wildlife conservation through innovative technology: Priya Joshi at TEDxKathmandu

Priya Joshi is a wildlife researcher and a manager of various conservation projects. She was a catalyst in introducing wildlife genetic research in Nepal and has since been actively involved in the field. Priya talks about using poop to examine the genes of animals in Nepal that has even helped count the number of the endangered tigers in the country. She also shares how genetics has helped in discovery of a completely new species of musk dear in the mountain regions of Nepal.

Tiger, Science and Society: A talk by Ullas Karanth

Ullas Karanth noted Wildlife conservationist talks about restoring nature in a crowded sub continent.

The talk covers Ullas Karanth’s personal engagement with wildlife conservation and science over the past 50 years in India. The presentation covers how his boyhood passion for ‘tiger watching’ led to a professional career as a wildlife biologist and conservation advocate. It includes glimpses of how he studied tigers for three decades, and, what he found out about their conservation needs in the context of changing human impacts, aspirations and traditions.

The core of the talk demonstrates how sound science helped to develop effective conservation interventions involving multiple partners to address conservation challenges rooted in both ecology and social context. The concluding part of the talk explores the key issues that need urgent resolution: How we can accommodate survival needs of threatened species, while also addressing social and economic aspirations of millions of people.

A New Hope for Wild India

Conservation of India’s biological diversity depends critically on sound professional management of significant areas in the future, as effective conservation has been hindered by a lack of professionals who can design, implement and monitor conservation grounded in sound science.

The goal of the Masters' Program in Wildlife Biology & Conservation is to address this gap, by encouraging and motivating amateur and practicing wildlife biologists to actively promote and apply advance science-based conservation of wildlife and natural landscapes.

The Program is a collaboration between the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) and the WCS India Program, with the degree being awarded by the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research. Other institutions which make significant academic contributions to the course include Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE), Nature Conservation Foundation (NCF) and National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS).

Science Matters: The Genetics of Wildlife Conservation

Wildlife is endangered by human activities as never before and species extinctions threatens the biosphere and our own future well being. Renowned wildlife biologist David Woodruff will illustrate the use of new genetic methods in the management of threatened and endangered species, and show how the process of genetic erosion in fragmented populations compromises the future of even protected populations.
