Mangaluru: Dr. Krishna Mohan Prabhu of Prabhu’s Nursing Home, Moodabidri has passed away on Tuesday January 11. He was a great surgeon at KMC, Mangaluru.

He was also a conservationist, a wildlife enthusiast, and one of the first to use the internet in Bengaluru using satellite phone connection when there was no internet connection by phones or cable.

As a nature enthusiast, he was a member of the Worldwide Fund for Nature and an active member of Wildlife First. He has worked in the game sanctuaries of Madumalai, Bandipur, and Nagarhole.

He had also bought a plot of land at Bisile alongside Ashok Vardhan of three book centres for the sole purpose of saving and nurturing wildlife, as well as building a small house for wildlife researchers to utilise during their stay in the forest.

He was a judge on life on streets contest conducted by NewsKarnataka. He also trained special kids in photography of Anirvedha, in a first in this region.

Prabhu was a charming man who has always been willing to assist anyone in need, whether it was a medical emergency or not.

He was also a blogger who used to blog about his photography and his camera work at remote places like Alaska and the Himalayas. He was a daily blogger and had tremendous insights into photography and the medical field too.

It’s time to bid adieu to a dear friend. Au Revior Krishi.
