Paro Natung grew up in Darlong village, just across the river that forms the boundary of Pakke Tiger Reserve. Growing up, his only experience with wildlife was of elephants crop-raiding the family's rice fields. So when he joined the forest department, he was excited to learn more about the wildlife of Pakke. His team won the best camera trap photograph award, which propelled his interest in wildlife and photography even further. When he joined Green Hub and was given a camera during the training period, he shot the first-ever live footage of a tiger in Pakke, and with his bridge camera, got plenty of footage of smaller creatures as well.
