The closer we look around ourselves, the more we realize how youngsters from all corners of the world have been creating immense buzz around whatever they are laying their hands on. There are multiple factors that can be thanked for, but no one can deny the amount of hard work, passion, resilience and pure will these youngsters display when it comes to their respective niches.
The world of wildlife and conservation is also one, which has so far welcomed many such talented beings, but a few rare ‘species’ have gone ahead in making it huge as ornithologists, avian biologists, wildlife researchers and whatnot. One such name is Devvratsinh Mori, hailing from Wadhwan, Gujarat.
This young man, who has earned it huge as an incredible ornithologist of India, has even earned a place for himself at a global level with his pictures getting selected for the London Calendar of the Project Luggar Foundation.
Explaining in brief what ornithology is, Devvratsinh Mori says that it is all about studying the birds. As a young ornithologist of India himself, he loves to study the physiology, behaviour and conservation of birds and bird habitats. Of course, the work is not as easy as it seems, but in the end, when you love what you do, things start falling into place, he says.
His passion was always by his side, which is why he aced the game as an ornithologist, avian biologist, wildlife conservationist and researcher.
Ornithologists are experts who are specialized in a specific bird group or generics, which requires them to study bird populations and also explore the wildlife for analysis. Speaking broadly on the various skills/qualities required for becoming a great ornithologist, Devvratsinh Mori says that the first and foremost thing is that individuals must feel passionate and have a keen interest in the natural world, where as an aspiring ornithologist, they must develop an interest in birds, characteristics, their living habitats, and nature.
Apart from this, their research skills should also be top-notch to help in projects, where they could study about different bird species and conduct experiments on them to reach certain conclusions. A growing ornithologist must also have attention to detail, as any error can lead to incorrect information. Besides this, they must also learn to be patient and know how to react in challenging times.
There is so much to be learned every day from nature and explore so much more about these birds and wildlife, explains Devvratsinh Mori, who aims to keep learning and honing his skills as an ornithologist as the one who could make a profound impact on wildlife with his knowledge and work.
