I am closely associated with and adhering to the Gandhian principle of nature conservation and taken it as a vow for the whole of life. I have been tirelessly working with coastal communities on issues of coastal resources conservation and restoration. I am leading a dedicated team of young volunteers. I am helping to create a new youth culture that takes on effective environmental stewardship. I have been using the power of community through community mobilization, rapport building and other community and stakeholder engagement mechanismsí for sustainable coastal resources conservation.
