About Mithila Wildlife Trust

Mithila Wildlife Trust (MWT) is dedicated to protecting wildlife and conserving the environment in Nepal. We work primarily in the Dhanushadham Protected Forest and around Janakpur in rescue and rehabilitation programmes and environmental conservation. We also work in partnership to build awareness in local villages and among students about the importance of conservation of wildlife, nature and natural habitats.

We were established as a non-profit, non-government organization in 2013 A.D. (2069 B.S.) and founded by a local group of experts working towards the conservation of nature and wildlife.

Since its establishment, MWT has rescued and rehabilitated hundreds of reptiles, birds, monkeys, turtles, and rare species of fishes in co-ordination with Nepal Forest Department.

We have also ensured the legal protection of the Dhanushadham Protected Forest to help conserve the few remaining forests in the Terai region of Nepal.
