Millennium Fellowship Project: The Animal Crew
Love and care for animals was always our passion and doing something for them was always in our minds. During the lockdown, we realized the power of social media influence. We wondered, that why sit and wait for an opportunity to help the innocent ones, when we can create one just by sitting at home! Thus the formation of The Animal Crew. We started by creating content to spread awareness about different species of animals, and the threats faced by them. Content creation involved detailed research regarding the animal species, and then articulation of knowledge gathered by adding audio and video. This also helped us hone our presentation skills, as we had to tailor the content as per social media audience to ensure its not too short nor too long. So far, we have released 5 episodes, 2 reels and several adoption which have garnered more than 5000 views. We hope to continue our stint and contribute in every possible way to prevent animal cruelty and provide a safe place for them to live in peace.
