One such institution is the WWF-India whose conservation efforts seek to secure long term survival of India’s wildlife and their habitats. They work with the -- ‘To stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature’ .

With an aim to increase conservation and education footprint in the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, WWF-Hyderabad is organising ‘WWF-GATI Golf for Wildlife and Nature’ tournament in association with Hyderabad Golf Association. Avid golfers and like-minded individuals and environmentally aware corporate groups have come forward to support this initiative.

The event will be held tomorrow from 6 am onwards at the Hyderabad Golf Club.

The tournament aims to promote the spirit of sportsmanship and enroll as many citizens and corporate groups to join in their hands for nature conservation by involving golfers’ spouses and children in ‘putting competition’, wildlife photography exhibition cum workshop, bird watching session and children painting competition. Tournament winners will also get a chance to experience a wilderness area as part of the prize.
