Organization Details

  • Organization Name:Nature Environment And Wildlife Society
  • About Organization:Nature Environment and Wildlife Society (NEWS), founded in 1991, is a conservation NGO based in Kolkata, India. Our primary focus is to conserve wildlife, ecology, natural resources and sustainable livelihoods for an improved environment. NEWS is a name of conviction in the conservation circle through its work, passion and dedication. We work for a better future where scientific research, knowledge dissemination, community engagement and policy advocacy are put together to achieve sustainable development. In this fast changing world, conservation is a continuous process where new challenges emerge every day. There is no such milestone in conservation which can be achieved once and for all. However, the process must adjust to social, economic, environmental and scientific advancements. We believe that without community’s empowerment and participation no amount of effort can sustain any threatened or vulnerable ecosystem, livelihood or natural resources.
