Shahriar Caesar Rahman has completed his B.Sc. in Environmental Science from School of Environmental Science and Management at Independent University, Bangladesh and is now Chief Executive Officer, Creative Conservation Alliance. Shahriar Caesar Rahman works in the remote Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh, which is part of the Indo-Burma Biodiversity Hotspot. In this hostile environment, entrenched in complex insurgent issues, he has conducted biodiversity surveys in the area which resulted in the most comprehensive wildlife survey done in the region. He documented 26 globally-threatened species persisting in the Sangu Reserve Forest. Shahriar also discovered the critically endangered Arakan forest turtle and keeled box turtle for the first time in Bangladesh, as well as rediscovered populations of the largest tortoise in Asia: the Asian giant tortoise, which was thought to be extirpated from Bangladesh.

As part of my studies we had to go to village and stay with rural people for a three week immersive field research program. When doing that I fell in love with Bangladeshi villages and our rural folk. I also felt very strongly this urge to do something to improve the dismal quality of services people have access to, especially in healthcare.
The diversity of wildlife in Bangladesh is remarkable. Our diversity is a part of us; it's not a luxury we have
