About PWHF

 

The Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation (PWHF) strives to ease the heavy strain on rare wildlife of Iran. Human population growth and the expansion of zones of human activity are among the many dangers facing wildlife habitats in particular and our nurturing environment in general.
We believe that conservation goals can only be fulfilled when people and authorities cooperate.  As a people whose livelihood depends on the health of the environment, we have a responsibility to safeguard and hand our great natural heritage to future generations.
We can come to an appreciation of our earth by understanding the interconnection of our environment and our lives on a personal level. As such PWHF focuses on public awareness campaigns in tandem with projects that can save endangered species and protect the fragile ecosystems of this land. Our projects are backed by a careful analysis of the main threats affecting the survival of endangered species.
PWHF is a not-for-profit organization supervised by a board of trustees. An executive board whose members are well versed in conservation strategies and natural resource management determines the day-to-day affairs of the foundation. Be they full-time or volunteers, our staff is made up of dedicated and informed individuals with deep care for the environment.
We extend a hand to all NGOs active in the field and seek their cooperation. We are ready to benefit from their skills and expertise. In the same vein, we consider PWHF to be an aide and a partner to the country’s hard-working officials in charge of our natural resources at the Department of Environment.
Concerned citizens and our trustee members provide funding for most of our activities. Once our staff drafts a proposal or we receive a proposal from another party, be it educational or in the field, it is carefully reviewed by a team of experts and then discussed in the executive board meeting before we approve it and allocate funds to it.
