Amit Sharma has been intensively working with rhinos since 2005, and prior to that was focused on WWF’s work with other large mammals, including elephants and tigers. Among other projects, he oversees WWF’s work under Indian Rhino Vision 2020, a partnership among WWF, IRF, the Government of Assam, the Bodo Territorial Council and the USFWS. “What I like best about my job is that there are new challenges every day,” he says. Amit was formerly a geography teacher, and then took additional course work in Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing. When the job at WWF opened up, he jumped at the chance to put his new skills to work for Indian wildlife. Amit has had a love of nature since childhood, when he used to visit a nature reserve near his home with village elders.
