TRAFFIC, operating as a programme division of WWF-India launched the wildlife sniffer dog training programme for the first time in India in 2008. Since then, 43 dog squads have been trained with support from WWF-India. Sniffers deployed in the field have received an overwhelming response from various stakeholders. They have been successful in at least 150 cases of wildlife seizures, arrests of about 100 illegal traders and recovery of animal body parts to include skins and bones of tigers, leopards, bear biles, ivory, star tortoises, deer antlers etc. This organisation is also instrumental in rescue of rare species of birds, porcupines, pangolins and has also recovered snares, traps, and weapons. This sends a strong message about the important role sniffer dogs play in combating wildlife crime. My intent to start this crowdfunding is to raise Rs 35,000/- to get a pup deployed for the cause.

I want to contribute my bit for this cause, but the amount is too much for me. Attestation will be provided once the target is complete.
Would you please consider donating for the cause to make this country free of wildlife trade. Kindly donate. 🙏
