The ongoing partnership between the University of Cologne and BVIEER Pune offered yet another outstanding cultural and academic experience for eleven students from the International Master of Environmental Science and Law program at the University of Cologne, as the students traveled to India in early March. The Cologne students collaborated with approximately forty students from BVIEER Pune as they journeyed to Periyar Tiger Reserve (PTR) in the South Indian state of Kerala for a research excursion. The students gained valuable field experience as they answered various research questions about PTR by interviewing local villagers living in the immediate area surrounding the park.
