Every two years, we also run a range of camps in collaboration with World Fish Migration Day. These mainly revolve around angling, but also allow city kids the opportunity to get out into the countryside and experience a range of activities whilst learning about the need for river conservation.
ANGLING AND ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS CAMPS
We have convened conferences in several locations in India, with many high-profile and influential attendees. Bringing debate to local forums and allowing lively interchange of ideas creates a connection between many groups who may, otherwise, not have the chance to discuss the issues that affect them with those who can influence them.
We are also increasingly supporting large-scale international conferences, such as the first International Mahseer Conference in Bhutan, at which MT Director of Research, Adrian Pinder, delivered a keynote presentation.
No upcoming conferences
From primary school children right up to interested senior citizens, our team can deliver a conservation message in an interesting and informal way, both in Europe and across mahseer range countries. For more information, please email email@example.com
Since 2011, the Trust has worked with a range of partners throughout south and southeast Asia to further boost the quality of research being conducted on mahseer and their habitats, and to raise the profile of those already doing steadfast work, often with little acknowledgment.
From State Fishery Departments to small NGOs and individual scientists to major research bodies, our aim is to connect across national boundaries so that all benefit from the better flow of information. We can proudly claim to have connected scientists across three continents and ten countries in the name of mahseer conservation.
A number of high-profile research papers have already been released (see Research and Conservation section), including one of the top-scoring publications in any biological field through Endangered Species Research. There are plenty more in the pipeline.
Through in-country partners, we are taking part in a range of programmes to access this vital information and to give back to their communities through economic benefit and cultural exchange.
