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?
Perhaps to pass your exams or complete an assignment. We’ll help you ace them.
But could there be something more?
Do you perhaps feel that there’s more to being “eco-friendly” than turning off lights and taking the stairs?
Do you really want to understand how nature works—in simple language—and know how you can make it better?
Or at least, not hurt it as much as humans generally do?
You’re in the right place.
We are here to unravel the complex field of environmental sciences so you can understand how nature affects you and you affect nature.
We discuss the environmental movement and encourage you to be a part of it.
We do this with the most powerful tool every invented by humans.
Our mission is to help you learn at least one new thing about the environment today.
If you leave our website with a better understanding of the natural world or the tools to make a 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…

You will find…
…posts on climate change, natural resources management, disaster management, environmental law and policy, ecology, sustainability and so much more on this environment blog.
We share information and our thoughts through stories, which can take many forms:
- Real-life analogies
- Case studies
- 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!)
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 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.
