Genesis, the Zoological Society and Earthlings, the Wildlife Society of Hindu College, University of Delhi, in collaboration with Delhi Greens jointly present:
VERVE 09 : A YOUTH SUMMIT ON WILDLIFE
- 22% of mammal species, 31% of amphibians and 27% of all warm-water reef-building corals are globally threatened or Extinct. Do such statistics bother you?
- Do you yearn to understand the issues pertaining to wildlife conservation more deeply?
- The Carbon concentration in the atmosphere is 387 ppm and rising, even when scientists suggest it should be less than 350 ppm? Does this concern you?
- Every time you read about wildlife and biodiversity conservation, do you find your brain bursting with ideas?
- Or do you think, “how does it matter to me if ‘n’ number of species are going to be extinct? Living in a city, what can I do about it anyway?
It is for all of you that we are organizing this Youth Summit on Wildlife!
- To make the youth think and come out with a charter of novel ideas on how they can contribute in Wildlife conservation. Also, to brainstorm on policy changes needed in India for better management of our wildlife.
- To make the youth aware about biodiversity conservation issues and also highlight the importance of research.
- To emphasize the fact that a lot of wildlife exists in cities like Delhi, and we can contribute significantly to conserve it.
