Dr. Krithi Karanth, Chief Conservation Scientist & Director at the Centre for Wildlife Studies Indiawill give a talk at Colorado State University from noon to 1 pm MT on Wednesday, October 5.

As a scientist for the past 24 years in India and Asia, Dr. Karanth has researched a variety of pertinent issues in the human dimensions of wildlife conservation. She has led large-scale research studies to assess species distribution and extinction patterns, the impacts of ecotourism, consequences of voluntary resettlement, land use change, and human-wildlife interactions.

Krithi has mentored hundreds of emerging leaders around the world and engaged hundreds of citizen science volunteers in her research and projects. Dr. Karanth has been honored as a 2012 National Geographic Emerging Explorer, a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, and a 2019 Laureate of the Rolex Award for Enterprise. In 2021, she became the first Indian and Asian woman to be chosen for the Wild Innovator Award.

We hope you will join us at noon at Colorado State University October 5 as Dr. Karanth shares some of her wisdom and wild experiences as a conservation scientist!

This event will be in-person only, and registration is not required.
We plan to record Dr. Karanth’s talk and make it available shortly after the event.

We will also host a social hour held jointly with GDPE from 5-6 PM that same afternoon (LSC Ballroom B). There will also be limited opportunities for labs and individuals to meet with Dr. Karanth—if interested, please email
