volunteer in nature conservation and sanctuaries

Wildlife Conservation Volunteer

Extinction of plant and animal species is an inevitable truth of today’s world and protection of wildlife is a big issue to be addressed. Wildlife conservation project is started to encourage the participation of people from different corners of the world to bring some positive changes in current wildlife condition of Nepal. Main objective of the project is to maintain the biodiversity, preserve natural resources and monitor the condition of wildlife.

Nepal is rich of Natural diversity and the people here worship Nature as a god. But the traditional Nepali customs and rituals are not enough to conserve the Natural heritages and wildlife. Join your hands to spread awareness for Natural conservation through your scientific logics and knowledge. People of Nepal know the importance of nature but don’t know the way to conserve it, so participants like you can co-operate with the local agents to take the steps more efficiently.

Volunteers can work in conservation centers of breathtaking Annapurna mountain ranges of Himalaya or in magnificent forest of Chitwan National Park. You will be assisting with monitoring the population of wildlife species, mammal survey, reptile survey, bird survey and also for the study of the plants. FDIP will arrange you the working days in wildlife conservation centers where you’ll be assisting to go through the conservation activities.
