We are reaching out to present an innovative initiative aimed at establishing a dedicated space for the cultivation of European fallow deer, with a dual focus on biodiversity conservation and therapeutic intervention for children with Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD). Grounded in scientific principles, this project seeks to integrate sustainable practices, habitat mimicry, and evidence-based therapeutic methodologies.

Project Overview

Our project entails the development of a 3-hectare enclosure, meticulously designed to mirror the natural habitat of European fallow deer, allocating fifty percent to meadow and fifty percent to wooded areas. The fundamental objective is the conservation and flourishing of the fallow deer population, coupled with a pioneering initiative—deer-assisted therapy for children with PDD.

Scientific Rationale:

Therapeutic Intervention: Research has indicated the potential benefits of animal-assisted therapy for children with PDD. By incorporating fallow deer into therapeutic programs, we aim to provide a unique and enriching experience that aligns with evidence-based practices.

Conservation and Habitat Mimicry: Our habitat design draws inspiration from rigorous ecological research, ensuring the cultivation area not only meets the specific needs of European fallow deer but also contributes to the preservation of biodiversity. The introduction of a secure, carefully engineered fence is paramount to safeguarding the deer population and minimizing external disturbances.

Infrastructure Requirements

To realize this multifaceted vision, we are seeking funding for the following crucial elements:

Shelter Construction: The creation of shelters tailored to the specific needs of European fallow deer, providing optimal conditions for their well-being and protection from environmental elements.

Enclosure Establishment: The implementation of a robust fence, designed with scientific precision to mitigate potential risks, while offering the deer sufficient space for natural behavior and movement.

Infrastructure Development: Scientifically informed infrastructure enhancements to create an environment that not only sustains the deer population but also supports therapeutic interventions. This includes features such as designated spaces for educational programs, blending ecological awareness with interactive learning.

Your Support Matters! Your support will be instrumental in advancing this pioneering initiative, contributing to the fields of wildlife conservation and therapeutic intervention. We invite you to join us in making a tangible difference in both the natural world and the lives of children with PDD.
