Gerry Martin started his career under the guidance of Romulus Whitaker at the Madras Crocodile Bank Trust in 1995. Although not academically qualified, he was eager to assist various scientists in their research and learned on the job! He has, over the last decade and a half, worked in educational reform, television and eco-tourism. Today, he runs The Gerry Martin Project – a company that focuses on enabling environmental and wildlife research and conservation. The Gerry Martin Project works closely with The Agumbe Rainforest research Station, The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and the Andaman and Nicobar Environmental Team to create platforms for research and conservation.
