Join our professional Junior Naturalist Program

Due to our lifestyle and routine, instilling love for nature and outdoors among children tends to take a back seat. The junior ranger program by Pugdundee Safaris aims at exposing kids to outdoors and enhancing their knowledge about the various aspects of wildlife through simple communication tools and story-telling. Junior Naturalist Course is a great platform for children to get associated with nature at a young age. This program not only builds foundation in Mammals, Reptiles, Birds and Outdoor photography but more importantly acts as a catalyst for lifelong learning, appreciation and connection with nature. On returning to urban life after the program they start seeing the natural world around them differently, it’s the beginning of a life time of passion and appreciation for nature.

This is an interactive program led by subject specialists with presentations, games and quizzes as tools.

The project is situated in the Satpura Tiger Reserve which is one of the richest ecosystems for the growth of wildlife in the Indian subcontinent.
