Nature and Wildlife Conservation Committee (NWCC) is a team of likeminded youth who decided to work for the conservation of nature and wildlife.

 

Every year on 5th June, on the occasion of World Environment Day and between October 1st to 7th for “Wildlife Week”, we have conducted many awareness programs about wildlife since the orginisation as formed amoung various community of people. Many of our programs are published in leading news papers which has been incorporated into our service.

First we took up the program of planting trees on the road sides, around the schools, colleges, government offices of bannerghatta and we are continuing this program.

 

When serial killing of deer took place in Koppala district of karnataka, we protested in Bangalore, to take action against the hunters, for the conservation of wildlife a team of 10 youths conducted a cycle expedition throughout the state. Participation of the forest department minister Mr.Gurumadappa Nagamarapalli, education minister Mr.Ramalinga Reddy during this program has given the committee a lot of support and co-operation. So to proceed with the committee systematically as per the rules we registered the committee in the government as NWCC.
