Hawk Conservancy Trust

Established in 1970, the World Wide Fund for Nature - Pakistan (WWF - Pakistan) is an international not-for-profit organisation in Pakistan, committed to: the conservation of the country’s rich biodiversity; the sustainable use of natural resources; and the promotion of actions to reduce pollution and wasteful exploitation and consumption of resources. Its scope of work and operations has expanded considerably in the last three decades. With its Head Office in Lahore, 6 regional offices, 2 Programme Offices and 23 Project Site Offices, WWF - Pakistan has a presence in all the provincial capitals, as well as outreach in targeted field sites and protected areas through project offices.

The Bangladesh National Vulture Recovery Committee is headed by an additional secretary to the Ministry of Environment and Forest. BNVRC recently made recommendations to establish two safe zones with the radius of 100km where the number of White-rumped vulture population was comparatively high.

The working group is composed of NGOs and Government, and this step gives the Cambodia vulture teams new profile within SAVE

The Trust is a conservation charity and zoological attraction dedicated to the conservation of birds of prey. The Trust works with organisations in other countries to deliver research and conservation projects, particularly related to vultures, and is partnered with WWF-Pakistan. Together they work on the Gyps Vulture Restoration Project in Pakistan and the Trust provides support in funding, research and captive breeding management.
