About Us

Are you confused because your lecturer rattles points off a PowerPoint presentation and now, you have no clue what “pools” and “fluxes” in an ecosystem mean?

Do you wonder why you should even care about pools or fluxes or food chains or ecosystems?

To pass your exams or complete an assignment? Of course! That is important.

But could there be something more?

Have you wondered if there’s more to being eco-friendly than turning off lights and taking the stairs?

If you have…

You’re in the right place.

Nature is complex. Nature is also, unfortunately, harmed by how we’ve shaped our economy and society today.

Does that mean that we have to choose nature or our convenient, comfortable lives?

We don’t think so.

At Eco-intelligent, we unravel the complex field of environmental sciences so you can understand how nature works, how it affects you and you affect nature in turn.

Armed with this knowledge, we are certain that can find a way to honor and sustain nature and our society

Our mission is to help you learn at least one new thing about the environment today.

We hope this knowledge can help you pass your exams, complete your assignments, discuss the environmental crisis with your loved ones and take steps to live in harmony with the natural world.

….

If you leave our website with a better understanding of the natural world or the tools to positively impact the natural world or both, we will have achieved a small part of our vision:

To make the world ecologically intelligent.

Or as we call it…

Eco-intelligent.

Browse the Menu, explore the Home Page or Search for what your mood fancies!


You will find…

…posts on natural resources management, disaster management, environmental law and policy, climate change, ecology, sustainability and much more on this environment blog. Most of the blog posts are specific to India, but we explore international topics and issues as well.

We share information and our thoughts through stories, which can take many forms:

  • Real-life analogies
  • Case studies
  • Anecdotes
  • Illustrations
  • Opinion pieces
  • Features about organizations and companies doing some exceptional work

(Some of our posts may not fit any of these story types, and have been written as if they are notes for exams. That’s because for the longest time, Eco-intelligent was a resource material for environmental science students. In the last one year, we have broadened our scope and have decided to aim for a higher vision. We are in the process of revamping old posts, so bear with us!)


Our Journey

In September 2015, Eco-intelligent began as a simple collection of letters addressed to the world on the gross environmental degradation occurring in the world. There was no agenda or dream; it was just a way to “vent”. (Some of these letters are still online, just search for “letters to the 21st century humans.)

In September 2016, when I (i.e. Saurab) enrolled for a Master’s degree in Environment Management, the blog became an efficient way to record additional course material that could be of use to his classmates and other environmental science students in India and the world.

As the audience and appreciation grew, the blog evolved to what it is today: a platform for readers to understand natural processes and learn to live in tune with these processes. We are a part of the ecosystem.

    1. Hi Saurab,
      I concur with speakoutsocietysite and hope that your readership will increase with time so that your eco-intelligent messages can be heard!
      As for “a lot of human bashing in [your] posts”, many of mine are like yours. Here’s one example, entitled “Facing the Noise & Music: Playgrounds for Biophobic Citizens” and published at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2013/03/02/facing-the-noise-music-playgrounds-for-biophobic-citizens/
      Happy December to all of you very soon!

      1. Hi Saurab,

        I look forward to “meeting” you there as you check out whatever that catches your fancy or interest at my website!

        Please be informed that you might need to use a desktop or laptop computer with a large screen to view the rich multimedia contents available for heightening your multisensory enjoyment at my websites, some of which could be too powerful and feature-rich for iPad, iPhone, tablet or other portable devices to handle properly or adequately. A fast broadband connection is also helpful. 🙂

        Happy December to all of you!

    2. Another more unusual “human-bashing” quality can be demonstrated in the very special post at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2013/07/13/soundeagle-in-debating-animal-artistry-and-musicality/, where I attempted to be simultaneously witty and serious about a number of outstanding issues, and examined them from multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives. Given your interest, expertise, outlook and passion, perhaps you might like to add your thoughts or share further insights on some of those issues.
      Please enjoy!

  1. This is good stuff Saurabh
    Pretty insightful and interesting for people from different fraternities who actually dont have much of a clue, or don’t really care. I’ll stay tuned for more stuff. Keep it up
    Nature breathed a sigh of relief during this world lockdown in the times of covid and we came across pretty bizarre stuff. Like grizzly bears paying a visit in a cosmopolitan in the States.The clearing up of the air. Tigers loitering about on the streets. I mean it can’t get any thought evoking than this.
