The WILD10 process is an important contribution to protecting wild nature and building international support and understanding about the interconnection between Nature and people,
prosperity and planetary systems. The WWC – the world’s longest-running, public,international conservation program – is a platform for all perspectives and a call for action, cooperation and positive models as human society works toward a more sustainable

that Indian lands, culture and wildlife will be represented at WILD10.
