Welcome to YETI

YETI is a first-of-its-kind conference for students and researchers of ecology, evolution, behavior and conservation in India, organized entirely by student volunteers from across the country.

This event serves as a friendly and inspiring platform for ecologists early in their career, to present and discuss their work, exchange ideas, and strike up collaborations with contemporaries.

YETI 2017 will be held at Tezpur University, located at close proximity to Tezpur (Assam), which also happens to be the least polluted city in India (WHO, 2016). Tezpur University, a central university, was established by an Act of Parliament in 1994. It is located near the foothills of Eastern Himalayas and is well connected to a number of protected areas (PA) of the region, viz Nameri TR, Pakke TR, Laokhowa-Burachapori WLS Complex, to name a few. Tezpur is also close to Arunachal Pradesh, and thus acts as a strategic location for nature conservation agencies working in the region and the event in Tezpur will be beneficial to its participants and add another mile to YETI’s journey.

For more details about the hosting institute, visit the Tezpur University Website.
