Srijita, a law graduate from Calcutta University in 2008, had this habit of clicking from her childhood days. It all started with her father’s Kodak Kroma 35. Later on, as she grew up, she got her first digital camera. Armed with it, she got the opportunity to visit Kerala with a two day trip to Periyar Tiger Reserve. She realised that there was an inborn love for nature and wildlife in her.
In January, 2011, she visited the Dooars region of West Bengal covering Gorumara NP, Chapramari Wildlife Sanctuary and Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary. The tour had such an impact on her that she took a tour to Corbett NP in the same month.
She apprehended the instinct in her and equipped with proper cameras and lenses, her next tour was at Gir NP, Gujrat. And it continued with Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve, Maharashtra, Ranthambore NP, Rajasthan, etc.
At this point of time, during July, 2012, she left her promising career as an Advocate and joined hands with an NGO in Kolkata working on sanitisation of street dogs. Later on, she left the NGO and started feeding street dogs with her own cooked rice and chicken and even working on Black Kite conservation. At the same time, she was also helping her friends and relatives for planning their forest related tours, giving a stress on Tiger Conservation and responsible tourism. This is when the concept of WILDHUNT was born.
