Mr D Raveendranathan, IFS (Retd), was recruited as a Forest Range Officer in 1970 and
was promoted as Assistant Conservator of Forests and deputed as Divisional
Manger in 1991. Since then, he’s held various posts like Wildlife Warden, Deputy
Conservator of Forests and was finally conferred IFS and posted as District
Forest Officer. He retired from service and took to publishing two books—Green Inspirational Experiences in Forest
Services and Western Ghats And The Bounteous Services Showered On The Planet. His
passion and 36-year-long service with the Forest Department prompted him to
express his concerns on the effect of global warming on India.
