Our blog & news: Get involved to help wildlife

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." 
Margaret Mead, American anthropologist, 1901-1978

Search Take Action for Wildlife Conservation

The 20-27th April 2023 saw the Green Match Fund 202when donations made to 178 participating charities were doubled.  Some are protecting specific animals such as dormice or otters, whilst others are focusing on habitats such as hedgerows or seagrass. Some are based in the UK but help wildlife overseas.  The event raised over £4,349,330  for the participating charities through 22,457 donations!  This well exceeded the previous year's event (£2.8 million).  Well done everyone!

Petition to help African wildlife and people from the African Wildlife Foundation

Posted on


Please, please take a look at this petition! 

The African Wildlife Foundation sent an email to say that the social distancing we are all doing has consequences for lions, elephants and other species in Africa’s 8,400 protected areas.

Please sign and share - Thank you

What has happened with the breakout of COVID-19 and social distancing?

Well, tourism has plummeted.  As a result, so has the revenue the safari industry receives.  The industry budgets revenue to dedicate to wildlife protection and protected areas management.

Wildlife and the people who protect it – rangers and community members who are employed in tourism and related businesses – will pay the price of this decline.

Please, please sign this petition and show support for Africa’s critical areas.  They are home to endangered species and they also drive economies that support wildlife.

By signing this petition, the African Wildlife Foundation says that you are on the side of:

  • Africa’s already threatened species who rely on protected areas for safe habitat
  • The health of some of the most biodiverse habitats in the world, which are found in protected areas
  • Local people who rely on sustainable nature tourism for a living

Please sign and share - Thank you
Please sign this petition today.
