Biodiversity and species conservation

The importance of protecting nature and wildlife cannot be overstated, particularly in the face of climate change and habitat destruction. In Gorakhpur, a city in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, a group of passionate individuals came together to establish the Heritage Foundation, with a specific mission to protect and preserve the environment and wildlife of the region. DR.Mike H. Pandey, a noted wildlife filmmaker and conservationist, was one of the key patron of the Heritage Foundation. His expertise and commitment to environmental conservation were instrumental in establishing the foundation's mission to protect and preserve the natural world. Along with other members of the foundation, Mike H Pandey has worked tirelessly to promote awareness about the importance of protecting the environment and wildlife.

Globally honoured & renowned for pioneering and landmark conservation work.We work closely with forest departments across the country to fortify on-ground protection by training and equipping frontline forest staff.
