About Conservation Action Trust
The Conservation Action Trust (CAT) is a registered non-profit organization formed to protect the environment, particularly wildlife and forests with a key focus on Mangroves.
The main purpose of CAT is to educate and enlighten decision makers and the public about the importance of forests for our survival. One of the major thrust areas of CAT is advocating the role of forests in protecting the water security of the country while simultaneously acting as major carbon sinks thus mitigating the effects of climate change.
CAT is dedicated to provide assistance in the form of technical information, legal advice, aid and equipment to all those who are confronting environmental problems.
It works closely with the Forest Departments and other NGOs that are fighting to protect nature and natural resources. Current campaigns include actively protecting the Mangroves and Biodiversity in India, looking at low carbon future and Renewable Energy in India and ensuring that forests are not distributed to appease industrialists and voters.
