Show Notes

On this episode of The Shape of Work podcast, our guest is Nikunj Sharma, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer at Mercy For Animals India Foundation. He shares his journey from working as a campaign coordinator in an animal welfare NGO to running his own.

With more than 14 years of working in the animal welfare sector, Nikunj knows the ins and outs of animal rights and an NGO’s working functions. With a background that extensive, it’s no surprise this episode covers a lot of ground:

One of the petitioners in many serious animal rights cases such as the Jallikattu case to stop bull taming and racing and also played a great role in putting a ban on the use of deadly kite string that kills animals.
