How did Nature Forever Society come into existence?
Nature Forever Society (NFS) has been working for the conservation of House Sparrows and other common flora and fauna in urban habitats since 2005. NFS is a registered charitable trust founded by Mohammed Dilawar.
The mission of NFS is to involve citizens in the conservation movement of India, especially in urban landscapes. To achieve this, NFS has been launching initiatives which are simple but have far-reaching conservation value.
NFS was not formed for the sake of having just another conservation organisation but more out of the need of the hour as most of the conservation organisations have historically overlooked conservation issues with regard to common flora and fauna.
It was formed with a vision to involve citizens from all walks of life, diverse backgrounds and different parts of the country and the world.
NFS began its work in a small way, without any sustainable source of funding support but with a belief and vision to save common flora and fauna by involving the citizen.
For NFS to be successful in reducing the decline we have seen in the common flora and fauna, we need to increase our source of funding. The more sources of funds and support we have for our initiatives, the more we will be able to do for birds, wildlife and people.
Already, your help and support have helped us to fund numerous conservancy projects. Here are a few examples:
- World Sparrow Day
- Rise for the Sparrows
- Second-hand Binocular Scheme
- Help Birds in Summer Campaign
- Native Plant Research and Conservation Center
