The Ambassador’s Fund pledged its commitment for protecting Pakistan’s rich bio-diversity by promoting community based wildlife conservation initiatives focusing on tangible and intangible benefits to the rural communities for effectively managing wildlife and preserving the natural habitat and species of Pakistan. As a result, communities have improved incomes through increased wildlife-related recreation and tourism. Wildlife management in national parks also played an important role in conservation and biodiversity by providing venues for education, research, strengthen the legislative framework and capacity of law enforcement agencies and by providing habitat for threatened species in Pakistan. This is an exclusive Ambassador’s Fund thematic area.
