About Kanika

Having worked within the creative industries for a number of years now, I wanted to use this flare as an expression of some of my greatest passions; these being travel, writing, environmental and wildlife conservation and learning about new cultures from all around the world. I have loved and been fascinated by wildlife and nature from a very young age. I follow the work of many organisations and charities that work tirelessly towards conserving the Earth's wildlife as well as rescuing them from often extreme cruelty and tragic conditions. Mahatma Gandhi once said, "You must be the change you wish to see in the world". So, I wanted to use this blog as a way of conveying my own narratives, observations and experiences of all the natural beauty that this Earth has to offer.
