Adventure & Wildlife, a bi-monthly magazine was launched on 6th April 2016 by the Hon’ble

R V Deshpande in the august presence of Akshay Kumar, President, Adventure Tour Operators Association of India ( ATOAI), Shashidhar K S, IFS, Former Principal Conservator of Forest, Nagaland and Simha Shastry, Editor & Publisher, Adventure & Wildlife Magazine.

Adventure & Wildlife Magazine focuses mainly on Adventure & Wildlife destinations, along with this equipment used, expert views on relevant issues, advice & suggestions, safety norms, guidelines. Also touch upon challenges faced by the communities and other stake holders of these resources and conservation issues.

You must be wondering why these two sectors – Adventure & Wildlife, the reason being after a great deal of research and understanding, we realized that these two sectors almost go hand in hand and the individuals or institutions for these two sectors are from similar interest groups, who are passionate to explore and find time and resources to indulge in their passions.

The main initiative behind this is to provide a common platform for all the stake holders to exchange views, experiences, and address various interests and issues pertaining to these two sectors. It is interesting to note that the number of people who are being drawn to these two sectors is ever growing. A print media effort in the form of Adventure & Wildlife magazine shall be an ideal catalyst for dissemination of valid information and refreshing contemporary articles.

I am sure the reader would learn and appreciate something new in this publication.  We shall bring in more awareness, address challenges, best practices, explore destinations and create a

community who shall indulge responsibly in these activities and at the same time contribute to safe guarding the eco-system.

In our endeavour to bring all these relevant and updated information, we shall also be

organizing series of events, awareness programs, seminars and workshops over a period of time and ensure participation of the various communities, stake holders and thus help in bringing in a positive change.
