Chef & Field Assistant
Johnson Kongari is a Chef and Field Assistant at ANET. He has field experience in birding and forestry, having worked regularly on forestry plots in the Andamans. Johnson is from Badakhadi village in Rutland, South Andaman and speaks Hindi and Sadri. He might seem quiet and shy but is highly skilled in work and play – watch him chop onions at lightning speed while looking away, before dinner, and demolishing veterans at table tennis after. He has a keen eye and a sharp ear in the forest, sighting and identifying species by quick flights and calls. Although not a regular birder, you are guaranteed unusual sightings when out with him.
