Nature study

Vena Kapoor works with the Nature Conservation Foundation (NCF), Bengaluru on nature education, outreach and public engagement. She is fascinated by the natural world and enjoys sharing this passion and wonderment with children and young adults. She has a soft corner for spiders — taking unsuspecting people for spider walks whenever possible.
