01 Wildlife Conservation
Saving the natural ecosystem and habitats of wildlife is the cornerstone of the Global DLC Social Impact Community. Their mission is to save the vast array of life on Earth with the best use of science & technology, working closely with local populations. Spurred by the depressing decline in the population of several species of mammals and birds, the Community is stepping up its efforts to protect varied ecosystems in a way that humans do not have to stop reaping the benefits of nature.
Animal welfare and protection

Partnering with organizations that provide facilities like shelters, dispensaries, ambulances etc., the Community also lobbies for effective amendments to animal protection laws including their use in laboratories.
Oceans and Biodiversity Preservation
03 Oceans and Biodiversity Preservation
In alignment with the UN SDG goals, it is important to conserve the ecosystem and biodiversity of our ocean. This community is focused on making the ocean more resilient through clean up drives of global coastal regions and knowledge sharing on best fishing practices. We recognise the need to stop over fishing, unregulated and destructive fishing practices.
With Climate Change and pollution looming as the largest threats, the overarching challenge is to maintain biodiversity, protect ecosystems and manage the sustainable extraction of resources

Over the past 30-odd years, there has been an average increase of ocean acidity of 26% since pre-industrial times. At this rate, an increase of 100 to 150% is predicted by the end of the century, with serious consequences for marine life. It’s time to contain the damage. Save Marine ecosystems. #DLCSocialImpact
