Chizami - Hoolock Gibbon Eco-Club Does us Proud Part I

HGEC in Nagaland is our first Eco-Club in a region that is rife with wild meat hunting. Our kids at the North East Network, Chizami under the expert guidance of Seno and Akole with our trainers Alo and Peter have done a fantastic job. Here are a few pictures from 2010 - 2014
Thanks to Rita for pulling me in to this awesome adventure
