For Last Wilderness Foundation (LWF), the conservation of wildlife is a continuous endeavor. They engage with urban and rural communities as well as the Forest Department in various capacities in a bid to understand and implement effective conservation measures.
In urban areas, they work with children to spread awareness about wildlife and biodiversity as well as sensitize them towards conservation and the environment. In rural areas, they reach out to communities living within and around forests to understand, assess and address various conservation-related issues/impacts that may arise out of human-wildlife interaction. In this regard, they work towards peaceful human-wildlife interaction to negate the chances of conflict.
They also support the government, (by way of the Forest Department) in addressing and implementing conservation measures on field as well as assist them through regular workshops that are aimed at boosting their technical skills as well as their morale.
