Environmental and Wildlife Awareness Programmes

Environmental and Wildlife Awareness Programmes

We believe on “No Conservation without Education”. We strongly believe that, it is lacking awareness that people are diminishing national and private forest day by day. The depletion
of the National and Private forests such as the Dhanusha Forest, among others in the country, has resulted to the unfavorable climatic changes with far reaching consequences, including;

  • Unreliable and inadequate rainfall for agriculture.
  • Unreliable practice: overgrazing, use of harmful pesticides and poisons for agriculture.
  • Depletion of palatable plant species.
  • Poverty due to loss of livelihoods.
  • Food insecurity in the country.
  • Extension of high yielding crop varieties.
  • Water resource drying up, including rivers.
  • Land resources degradation due to erosion.
  • Encroachment of forest land.
  • Encroachment of wetland habitats.
  • Lack of indigenous/ local land-race and their wild relatives.
  • Depletion in the number of wildlife in their habitat.

The situation is likely to worsen in the absence of deliberate efforts to preserve the existing forest and improve the forest cover in the country.

Thus we conduct environmental and wildlife awareness programmes in the VDCs, Schools and Colleges. We focus to create a sentiment towards nature and wildlife during our awareness programmes.

One can contact us to organize such awareness program in his/her school, colleges, communities or VDCs.

Wildlife Awareness Camp in a Government Secondary School

Environment and Wildlife Awareness Camp in Shri Ma.Vi., Mithileshwar Mauwahi

MWT conducted a Wildlife Awareness Camp in Mithileshwar  Mauwahi Secondary School, Dhanusha, Nepal.

Both students and teachers of the school were present in the awareness camp.

We shared the myths and truths about snakes in our society. We told them about the requirement of snakes for balance ecosystem of our earth. They were very much exited because this was the first time they heard that we should save snakes.

Principal of the school “Mr. Lakshmeshwar Mandal” suggested to conduct such awareness camp at night as the Projector was not useful in the day time” and we conducted same campaign at night as well.
