The authors’ column of the third Current Conservation issue brings me particular joy. In a lot of ways, both intention and serendipity merged to bring 14.3, an issue both run by women and bringing you stories by women (with the exception of our regular column by Kartel Shockington, who are happy to be read in esteemed company). Sonya Sankaran and Manju Vasudevan make room for conserving indigenous food ways, while Deborah Dutta and Adithi Muralidhar talk natural world in unnatural environments – our cities. Saloni Bhatia takes you far away from both, all the way to Ladakh. In continuation with our focus on environmental policy in 2020, Rinki Sarkar talks avian roles in forest conservation up in the Himlayan mountains. Our two Research in Translation pieces in this issue offer insights into research on a) legality of wildlife corridors around certain water bodies, and b) marine protection covers leading to loss of biodiversity. This issue also features a lovely photo essay on taxidermy, thanks to Manisha Kumari. The CC team hosted a phenomenally successful #CCInktober this year. Our Art Editor walks us through the winning entries. In this issue, I had the honour of publishing a poem about my adventures at the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station. I hope reading our work feels just as adventurous. —Shruti Sunderraman
