Activities

WASA also organizes various programs for school children throughout the year. They mainly include festivals like Nag Panchami, Raksha Bandhan and World Snake Day, World Sparrow Day, Wildlife Week. On the same line, seminars, wildlife photo exhibition and painting, color filling, face painting competitions are held for college and school students.

WASA team goes from village to village conducting awareness programs about wildlife conservation, indigenous tree plantation, cleanliness, open defecation free village etc. Street plays are quite often performed for the same purposes. Members wear Sari in these plays and sometimes, become even a transgender to draw people’s attention. Jungle safari and bird watching excursions are organized for children of all ages.

WASA members also work informally with the local government veterinary hospital  and local Vets to provide prompt treatment to the rescued animals. Treatment costs and food are often volunteered by well-wishers.

Our Dream

We need to build a well equipped rescue centre near the city of Amravati to be able to provide proper treatment and care to the animals.  We also need two well equipped ambulances to carry the animals to the centre.

The purpose of setting up a rescue center : 

An animal rescue centre operated by trained animal rescuers and para-veterinarians of WASA won’t only save the wild and stray animals rescued from in and around Amravati, but it will also help the citizens in number of ways. We list a few of the benefits of the center below:
