Join author, naturalist, photographer, Scott Weidensaul, to learn about the amazing spectacle of the Amur Falcon migration in Nagaland, India. This incredible story includes a local conservationist and her campaign that became one of the most successful conservation stories to date.
In 2017, Scott and Wildside Nature Tours owner, Kevin Loughlin, planned and carried out an expedition to remote Nagaland to witness the migration. They were joined by artist, Catherine Hamilton (a Zeiss Optics Ambassador), as well as travel companions Peter Trueblood and Bruce Evans.
Scott will share our fantastic adventure in stories and photos as he recounts this incredible tale of conservation... with a happy ending!
