I would also like to acknowledge with gratitude, Sadichha's commitment and contribution for biodiversity conservation during her tenure as WWF’s Young Conservation Ambassador” said Anil Manandhar, Country Representative of WWF Nepal. Like every past year, this year WWF Nepal is coming up with many exciting programs and I am hopeful to have Malina's active participation to help promote nature conservation in Nepal through awareness and action”, reiterated Mr. Manandhar.

“I really value this association and I would, in the best possible way, use this opportunity to raise awareness on conservation issues,” said Malina, the newly appointed Young Conservation Ambassador. During my tenure I will be involved with the species conservation program specifically the Zero Poaching Campaign for tigers in Terai Arc Landscape and in learning about climate change and later sharing the message with the rural communities in the Sacred Himalayan Landscape", added Malina.

WWF Nepal started the Young Conservation Ambassador program from 2004 and since then Payal Shakya, Sugarika KC, Sitashma Chand, Zenisha Mocktan and Sadichha Shrestha have contributed to disseminating the message of conservation through word and deed.
