#HighlightsOf2018 - Our Ek Prithvi programme spread its roots to nine states in partnership the various State Education boards. Focusing on a shift in behaviour, the programme empowered more than 30,000 students in 140 government schools across the country. These young conservation leaders were reconnected with nature, inspired to developed a pro-environment attitude and encouraged to drive community action for conservation. Here are some glimpses from Ladakh and Delhi. #Throwback2018

#HighlightsOf2018 - this year, we found 5-11 #IndusRiverDolphins in a 185km stretch of the river Beas! In partnership with the Department of Forests and Wildlife Preservation, Punjab, we surveyed the river from 3-6 May and even found a one week old! There are as few as 2000 Indus River Dolphins left today, and seeing them thrive has been a huge highlight for us Pandas! #Throwback2018

The recent news of #China lifting the ban on #tiger bone and #rhino horn trade was shocking! But now, they’ve decided to postpone this reversal, making us Pandas very, very happy!

We found a new species!! In 2011, this #scorpion - ‘Heterometrus telanganaensis’ - was found in Warangal by WWF-India’s #AndhraPradesh and #Telangana team. What truly caught our attention was that it bore resemblance to the genus Heterometrus yet was different in several aspects from the other known species in India. A predominant factor that distinguished it from the others was the fact that it was one of the smallest species with a relatively short posterior.

Interestingly, it was given its name as an honour to the region of Telangana, where the specimen’s collection site Regonda is situated and has been among one of the proudest findings for our team in the region.

#Snowleopards face major threats today, ranging from habitat loss and degradation, poaching, retribution killings to free ranging dogs who compete with them for prey and climate change. #StayTuned to know what we're doing at WWF-India to protect them.

#DidYouKnow that their secretive nature and legendary camouflage have earned snow leopards the title of the 'ghosts of the mountains'?

As #protectors of the #Himalayas, #snow #leopards also protect the three #rivers that emerge from these mighty mountains. In north India, our life depends on these three rivers. But there are as few as 500 snow leopards in India today. You can help us change that. Support our work here - https://join.wwfindia.org/regular-giving/snow-leopard.php +WWF +Woodland BD
