Animal Care and Conservation

Project Code: 
LTV 02E
Country: 

A sustainable future for the planet can only be achieved if both animals and people are part of the solution. However, it is not at all uncommon to see animals - domestic, stray or wild often exploited and taken for granted. It is a forgotten fact that even they need food and water. Conservation and management of animals have a significant bearing on the survival of every species by helping in promotion of rational use of environment to provide a high quality of living for mankind. Animal care and conservation envisages not only the protection of the existing populations of animals and their habitats, but also the breeding and farming of rare animals.

As a volunteer you will be assigned to work with organisations involved in the field of impacting political and economic climate, habitat protection, breeding and farming, special wildlife projects, legislative measures, nurse ailing and injured animals. The major activities that you may be assigned are: Providing care and treatment, conducting surveys, documentation, policy advocacy, designing appropriate IEC (Information, Education and Communication) materials, community awareness and education. The Info-sheet will have more information regarding the individual projects with schedules, and activities.

Note: Limited projects are available, and requires an application for the duration of minimum of three months.
