Speakers of the X. International Parrot Convention: Nanda Kishore Reddy

Country: India

Presentation: The evolution of India and its Aviculture

Nanda Kishore Reddy holds a Masters Degree in biotechnology and has worked extensively in the field of tissue culture. His interest in animals and birds made him quit his job and pursue his hobby of bird-keeping. His mother had budgies as a child, and was an avid bird lover. The seeds sowed by his mother bloomed, making Nanda an Aviculturist.

His work on standardisation of protocols for Conures and Macaws made him a prominent speaker in a number of Conventions held in India and abroad. Articles about him have also been covered in a number of print and electronic media. His work has been recognised by the Forest Department in India, and has made him the Consultant for a number of Zoological Parks. He works on various in-situ and ex-situ conservation programs, trying to increase the native bird population. He also has a large walk-in aviary open to public of central India.

He is also a part of a non-profit, non-government organisation called Animal Rehabilitation & Protection Front. This is a student run organisation. It works towards the rejuvenation of forests and protection of endemic wildlife. Nanda also has his own organisation, called the Raaga Foundation, which funds a number of conservation projects.
