 WWF Nepal appointed Ishani Shrestha, Miss Nepal – World 2013, as the eighth Young Conservation Ambassador at a ceremony in Kathmandu on 15 April 2013.

“WWF is pleased to appoint Ishani as our Young Conservation Ambassador,” said Dr. Ghana S Gurung, Conservation Program Director of WWF Nepal. “During her tenure she will promote biodiversity conservation in Nepal through awareness and action.” I would also like to acknowledge with gratitude Miss Nepal 2012, Shristi Shrestha for her active contribution to help raise awareness on WWF's conservation endeavors and also being the first Young Conservation Ambassador to fundraise for the local people of Ghunsa in Kanchenjunga.

Following in the footsteps of former Miss Nepal’s and the global conservation organization’s Young Conservation Ambassadors, Ishani will be actively involved in helping promote conservation especially among the youth.

“I would, in the best possible way, use this opportunity to raise awareness on conservation issues,” said Ishani, the newly appointed Young Conservation Ambassador.

WWF Nepal started appointing The Hidden Treasure’s Miss Nepal pageant winners as the Young Conservation Ambassador from 2004 and since then Payal Shakya, Sugarika KC, Sitashma Chand, Zenisha Moktan, Sadichha Shrestha Malina Joshi and Shristi Shrestha have contributed to disseminating the message of conservation through word and deed.
