Adith has been fascinated by the marine environment, sea turtles in particular, since the age of 10. Since completing his masters, he has been working with Dakshin as a part of the Biodiversity and Resource Monitoring programme. His first project with Dakshin, he worked as a researcher in Rushikulya, Orissa, India conducting mass nesting census over two consecutive nesting seasons from 2008-2010. Since 2010, he have been working on a leatherback sea turtle monitoring project based in Little Andaman of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India. The project, which was initiated in 2008 to study the nesting recovery of the leatherback turtles post the tsunami and earthquake of 2004, has evolved in to a long-term monitoring programme.
