He started voluntary work with the Forest Department in 1976, was involved in the Bharatpur Bird Census and began an official post with the department in 1982. He has delivered a lecture at the University of Kent on Tourism & Conservation: 'Changing character of Keoladeo Ghana' and wrote a paper on 'Geese of Keoladeo' for Sanctuary Magazine. In 1984, Lakshmi did a study on Lesser Florican and Indian Bustard for Tourism & Wildlife Society of India and later received a citation from the Rajasthan Govt.

He has also spent 3 years in Ramthambore National Park as a naturalist.
