What it is doing? What do we do?
Recently WWG has successfully completed 'Stop Monkey Business Campaign'. WWG have signed MoU with ARCO- Nepal (Amphibian and Reptile Conservation of Nepal) and will be publishing books on snow leopard written by renowned scientists. WWG also publishes 'Wildlife Times' which is a monthly magazine. WWG has initiated to establish an Environmental Journalism School in collaboration with School of Environmental Management and Sustainable Development (SchEMS), which will be affiliated to Pokhara University. Apart from wildlife activities, WWG has taken an Initiative on Impact of Climate Change in Protected Areas of Nepal.

Since its inception, WWG has been instrumental in alerting and educating the public on various wildlife issues. WWG has also been active in urging and reminding the concerned authorities of their responsibilities towards the protection and conservation of wildlife by implementing CITES regulations. Side by side, it is also monitoring the wildlife trade and advocating against illegal trade of wildlife and its products. Governance:
