Aparajita Datta has been involved in research and conservation in Arunachal Pradesh since 1995. While her primary focus has been on hornbills, she has carried out exploration surveys and camera-trapping studies for mammal species, examined the impacts of hunting and logging, and engaged with the government on the management of some tiger reserves and protected areas. She has also worked with communities for conservation, however she now believes that reconciliation between wildlife and people is not always possible. Aparajita has written several books for children. She posts as @aparajita_datta on Instagram.
