In Search of Nilgiri Marten

The Nilgiri Marten is an enigma. This small, weasel-like mammal lives only in the Western Ghats where it’s rarely seen— those that have often mistaken it for a giant squirrel. In this episode, follow naturalist Surya Ramachandran as he explores the forest patches of Munnar with Hadlee Renjith in the hopes of glimpsing this creature that’s long captivated him. What will his search reveal?

The film is a part of a documentary miniseries about the Western Ghats, produced in collaboration with the team at On The Edge.
