    fight wildlife trafficking

    from Kota, Rajasthan

Hello everyone, my name is Shreshta Sinha, I am an 11th grader from Kota, Rajasthan. Recently I got enrolled into a programme namely 'Young Conservationist Programme', which is conducted by World Wildlife Fund (WWF), India. In this programme, I was introduced to a wide array of initiatives led by the WWF. Wildlife crime is a big nexus run by dangerous international mafia and animal body parts are trafficked much like illegal drugs and arms. To battle this, WWF launched TRAFFIC, the Wildlife Trade Monitoring Network which is a leading Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) working on wildlife trade in the context of both biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. Donations are taken in this program under different subcategories. One such category allows the NGO to buy a German Shepherd puppy that would be trained and deployed with the forest officials to combat the wildlife trade and are titled as 'Sniffers'.
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. 🙏
