Sarika is in Kanha Tiger Reserve with colleagues (not the ones photographed above) on a National Geographic Society-funded project, Soundscapes and Stories. Here, she takes a nap under a tree where the cattle must also like to rest. She's working in communities in the buffer of Kanha Tiger Reserve and due to the nature of the work, which involves building trust with people, a lot of things are confidential and cannot be shared. She's documenting her research on Instagram if you want to follow along.
