Celebrating World Pangolin Day

With Mridula Vijairaghavan of WCS India

The intersections of law and conservation are of particular interest to Mridula Vijairaghavan, Legal Director of WCS India. Working in a region that sees too much illegal trade of endangered animals such as pangolins and tiger products, Mridula will discuss the importance of science translating into policy and better implementation of existing law and policy as measures for conservation. She says, “experiences from my childhood and formative years pushed me to take environmental law up as a career.” Learn more about her path towards this career, celebrate World Pangolin Day with this interactive series that explores why conservation really needs a strong interdisciplinary approach to have a chance at creating impact.


NOT ALL SCIENTISTS WEAR LAB COATS
Conservation issues remain a critical emphasis in the STEM field. Facing issues such as illegal wildlife trafficking, the climate crisis, plastics pollution, and zoonotic disease spread, WCS professionals are leading the way in innovative and exciting ways to identify solutions.
