Prasenjeet Yadav is a molecular ecologist turned National Geographic Photographer & Explorer. Prasenjeet is one of the very few photographers who integrates science deeply into his photo stories. His previous projects helped bring light on sensitive issues such as climate change and its effects on high elevation in the Himalayas. Similarly a project on how windmills affect surrounding ecosystems raised questions about how green is our green energy. He is a founder member of 'Shoot for Science' which is an initiative to train scientists in science communication.
In this podcast, Prasenjeet talks about his journey and passion for science and communication & snow leopards changing his life. He also asks to become more aware and become part of the solution in the fight against climate change.
