If you’re looking to do something hands on this summer, come volunteer to improve conditions for the animals in captivity at Karachi Zoo. Hone your observation and data collection skills by researching the behaviour of animals in their cages. Enthusiast photographers and filmmakers bring your cameras! We will present our report with recommendations to the city government and increase public pressure to focus on the welfare of the city’s captive animals.
Trees of Karachi
Rediscover Karachi’s feathered inhabitants and the trees which they call home. We’ll document the native trees of Karachi and learn how they benefit the people, environment and urban wildlife of the city.
