About Gerry Martin:
Gerry Martin’s first childhood ice-breaker with reptiles was with his grandfather who introduced him to the idea of observing them in the wild. With a lot of it inculcated from there, Gerry is the ideal person to gently ease us with animals we would otherwise not know how to interact with.
Gerry built his curiosity for herpetology under the tutelage of the legendary Romulus Whittaker and King Cobras. In 2000, Gerry became National Geographic Channel’s fist Indian Adventurer — a face for the channel for Asia. He later transitioned from Nat Geo and television to develop The Gerry Martin Project — opening up his experience and knowledge to curious minds looking for a friendly voice to venture into the natural world with.
Center for Conservation and Education: Located 180km from Bangalore just past Mysore, the Martin Farm is 10 acres of lush green biodiversity experiments paradise by a lake. Think Gerry Martin and then think of his farm, that should help paint the picture.
