The Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust (founded by Gerald Durrell) have an appeal at the moment.
Once, the southern foothills of the Himalayas were covered with lush grasslands. These grasslands were homes to animals such as elephants, rhinos and tigers.
Today, thanks to human activity, there’s less than 10% of the original grassland left.
And there are less than 250 pygmy hogs left in the wild. They rely on this ecosystem – and unless action is taken fast, the grasslands will vanish. Their home will be gone forever.
Pygmy hogs and other native wildlife can only thrive if these grasslands recover.
And that’s where Durrell and you & I come in.
To protect and restore the grasslands in and around the Manas National Park, Durrell need a 4WD vehicle. They need to monitor wildlife and understand the threats that this ecosystem faces. And they need to reach communities and reach important sites across 3 protected areas of grasslands – ensuring that the reintroductions of pygmy hogs goes successfully.
Donate and you can help save the wildlife and communities who rely on the grasslands.
Pygmy hogs are depending on you and I to help them. I have made a donation – will you?
