Absar Khan, Project Coordinator

Absar Khan is driven by a passion for the natural world; he is a scuba diver and mountaineer who loves nature and adventure so much that he left his career practising law in England and moved to back to his home country of Pakistan to pursue his lifelong dreams.

Marine and mountain conservation resonated with Absar and he is our latest addition to the Olive Ridley Project team. Focusing on field surveys, logistics and expedition planning, Absar has been directly trained by ORP Founder and Director Martin Stelfox, and coordinates ORP projects in Pakistan.

Absar is a Dive Master as well as an Assistant Climbing Instructor with Mountain Wilderness – Pakistan. He brings a wide range of skills to the field that helps him tremendously in achieving our goals. Our latest projects in Pakistan focus on conducting surveys to identify the scale of the ghost net problem, as well as initiatives for reusing ghost nets and working with the local communities.
