THE HEROES BEHIND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION – TOFTIGERS
There are many people behind a success who worked together day and night to make it happen. Behind the success of wildlife conservation are the people who in their own little ways contributed towards the protection of wild species and providing them with a safer environment and the top wildlife conservation organizations who started the idea of conservation, making people aware of it.
It’s a hard-earned success that everyone should be proud of but also keeping in mind that this is just the beginning and there is more to come and more to do. Slowly and steadily we have come so far and with the same energy and more people involved, we can reach new heights. A day will come when no member of wildlife will be fighting for their existence or will be treated brutally; it will be a better and safer environment for them whose foundation will be love, care and respect.
In today’s time, people are becoming more animal-friendly rather than just treating them as a mere part of the country. Wild species are a part of our country but they are definitely more than that, they are the heart and soul of the country and the sooner we will realize it, the sooner we will be able to set an example for other people so that they are not ill-treated anymore.
We all know about the different campaigns and ideas that are introduced to spread awareness about wildlife conservation and what all people can do about it but an idea which is still under wraps and not that famous is the idea of ecotourism destinations in India. People have started understanding the concept that it’s not just about spotting wild species at places, it is also about enjoying the nature and not doing something for fun which might make wild species afraid or lead to any harm to their environment.
Some of the organizations that left no stone unturned for the betterment of wildlife are:
THE WORLD WILDLIFE FUND (WWF):
This organization was founded in 1961 and this is one of the most talked and appreciated organization which is working towards providing a secure environment to the wild species. This is the most influential organization and is supported by many strong and important people of the world also. They work towards the protection of tigers, elephants, leopards, dolphins and etc.
THE INTERNATIONAL RHINO FUND (IRF):
IRF has been working from the past 25 years and funds the conservation programs which are run to protect rhinos and ensures a safe and healthy environment for them. Everywhere around the world, the population of rhinos is being looked after IRF so that there is no threat to them.
PEOPLE FOR ETHICAL TREATMENT OF THE ANIMALS (PETA):
PETA is one of the most renowned and largest animal rights organization in the world. Not many people know that animals too have rights and keep illtreating them but PETA aware people about these rights and makes sure that no right of any animal is being challenged and not taken into consideration. It is very important to treat animals with respect because no matter they can’t express like us, but they too have feelings and go through many things which they shouldn’t.
WILDLIFE CONSERVATION SOCIETY (WCS):
This organization was founded in 1895 in New York City and works worldwide, ensuring to provide a safe habitat to the wild species. WCs is a part of around 500 on field conservation projects in approximately 65 countries. They have played a very important role in the conservation of endangered species. They have worked not only for animals who live on the ground but also took a step towards the marine animals whose existence is also as important as any other wild species.
ROYAL SOCIETY FOR THE PROTECTION OF BIRDS (RSPB):
RSPB was founded in 1889 with the aim of protecting the birds from getting killed for their feathers or plumes. Just as any wild species, birds are also a very important part of our rich biodiversity and it is our duty to protect them too. This organization successfully re-introduced some of the bird species which became extinct earlier.
These are just a few top wildlife conservation organizations which work for the benefit of the wild species but there are many unknown heroes too who work their best to protect our wilderness in any manner they can. It is very important to appreciate these organizations and these people because at the end of the day if animals are safe then we are safe too. With our motivation and support, they will try to work harder and will always make us proud.
