How to help curb India's wildlife crisis

You Can Help

There are a number of organisations dedicated to saving our wildlife and your support can further strengthen their efforts and consequently, the conservation movement in India. Here are some ways you can help save our wildlife:

Donating and Fundraising:

You could start by donating to or fundraising for conservation efforts in India. It is important to thoroughly research the organisation or initiative that you wish to donate to. You could also undertake fundraising campaigns within your organisation, school, colony etc. and raise donations for organisations involved in the conservation movement. There are many creative and fun ways of raising funds for a cause that you believe in, and remember, no amount is too small!:

o        Organise a fundraising event such as a sale to raise funds or a dinner, or you could run a marathon for a cause (Websites such as justgiving.com allow you to raise funds and donate to your chosen charity or NGO online).
o        Encourage workplace-giving by encouraging fellow employees to donate to the charities they care about through making payroll pledges and contributing a few rupees per month.
o        Family celebrations and parties can become great opportunities to support a cause. People often make donations on behalf of a couple's wedding, birthdays, performances etc.
o        You could leave something in your will to your favourite conservation charity. If you are interested in such planned giving, please get in touch with us and we would be happy to guide you through the formalities.

Stay Informed

The more aware you are of the status and plight of India's wildlife and wild places, the more effective you will be in helping to save it. You can stay informed of the current conservation efforts being undertaken across the country through the media, current publications and the internet. You can also get in touch with local wildlife organisations for up-to-date information.

To get in touch with us, you can email us at wpsi@vsnl.com

Create Awareness

Once you are armed with knowledge, spread the word to your friends, family and community leaders. There are many innovative ways to create awareness, you could:

o        Organise an event such as a walk or an exhibition, that educates the public about wildlife
o        Write letters to the editor of a newspaper
o        Write letters or petitions to your community leaders and to national and international leaders
o        Start a blog or newsletter to keep your friends, families and co-workers informed

Take Action

The conservation movement now calls for collective action, for civil society to join the fight against poaching, illegal wildlife trade, and wildlife crime, and for all stakeholders to work together to conserve our natural heritage.

o        Choose Wildlife conservation as your career. The expansion of the conservation movement sees the need for people from all sectors, such as lawyers, computer operators, designers etc. Consider making conservation your career, or spending a couple of years of your career in a conservation-related profession.
o        Volunteer with an environmental/wildlife NGO. Support an NGO by offering them your time or skills. Before you take this step, research the field and organisation that you wish to assist. Once you have short-listed an organisation, be sure that their basic philosophy is similar to what you believe in. Get in touch and offer your services!
