Program Highlights:

Rescue and Rehabilitation: Rescue and Rehabilitation of snakes, birds and other animals is one of the main activities of VNC. The ever increasing human population and the resultant need for more land are creating tremendous pressure on wildlife and its natural habitats. This causes the wild animals to stray out of their limited habitats into the human world where they are feared and as a consequence either they are hurt or they cause hurt. VNC has a trained group of youngsters who rush to rescue such creatures that had strayed in to human residence by mistake or are injured. Till date we have been able to rescue and rehabilitate several hundreds of such speechless creatures.

Mission Statement:

Our Mission: To create environmentally sensitive society thru Environment education, awareness and conservation.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

VNC, Voluntary Nature Conservation (formally known as Vidyanagar Nature Club), located in "Charotar", one of India's most prosperous and fertile region, has been active at grass-root level since its inception in 1988, nurturing nature for a better future. It has been its mission to educate the masses and to spread awareness about the crucial need for environmental protection. The organization has evolved with changing times, creating novel ways to communicate with society, thereby, shifting the attitude of thousands of people by environmentally sensitizing them. We stand for Environment education, awareness and conservation.

Program History:

1st August 1988 - marked the foundation of VNC: VNC was started as a juvenile dream of a 17 year old Nature Enthusiast. It was conceptualized by five friends with a dream to keep their town, area green. The activities later expanded with maturity to incorporate REP, camps and anti polythene campaigns.VNC crusaded for nine years in high court to save the trees that shade our roads today. In 1993. VNC lead to the halting of an Industrial company's working in response to the agitation among public for lack of air pollution control measures. These activities started the fire that refuses to douse and since then VNC has been actively involved in environment conservation through education and awareness. Today VNC is accredited by GEF, (Global Environment Facility, Washington DC, US) and is a member of GEA (Global Environmental Action, Japan) & SAYEN(SOUTH ASIA YOUTH AND ENVIRONMENT NETWORK) All activities of VNC are carried out by its volunteers which are the backbone of this organization.
