Collaborating NGO’s

Big Life

Big Life Foundation seeks to conserve and sustain the wildlife and the wild lands of the Amboseli-Tsavo ecosystem of East Africa through innovative conservation strategies that address the greatest threats while – at the same time – satisfy the economic interests of the resident Maasai people in ways that improve the quality of life for the entire community.
Big Life recognizes that sustainable conservation can only be achieved through a community-based collaborative approach, whether the goal is to mitigate human-wildlife conflict, greatly reduce the loss of wildlife to poaching, defeat the ivory trade, protect the great predators, or manage scarce and fragile natural resources.

Big Life’s vision is to establish a successful holistic conservation model in Amboseli-Tsavo that can be replicated across the African continent.

EAL

EAL’s Mission is to fight elephant exploitation and wildlife crime. We raise much needed money to fund specific, concrete projects on the ground, such as anti-trafficking & anti-poaching activities, training for rangers/law enforcement, investigations on wildlife trafficking and human-elephant conflict (HEC) mitigation, all activities that are beneficial to both elephant/wildlife and people. We are also working on creative and strong global communication campaigns in order to re-position elephant and wildlife exploitation in the public’s mind and to pressure consumers of ivory and other wildlife products. While we believe it’s important to talk to everyone and to exchange thoughts also with people who don’t agree with us, we are not afraid to take strong stand against what is illegal, cruel, based on ignorance and ethically unacceptable.

EIA

The Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) is an independent campaigning organization committed to bringing about change that protects the natural world from environmental crime and abuse.

Our vision is a future where humanity respects, protects and celebrates the natural world for the benefit of all.

IAPF

The illegal trafficking of wildlife now ranks as the 3rd largest criminal industry in the world. IAPF warriors effectively fight poaching and safeguard elephants, rhinos and other endangered wildlife – and you can help.

We meet conservation challenges head on, successfully running multiple campaigns, such as the IAPF Drone program, Anti-Poaching Ranger the resurrection of Chizarira National Park.

The IAPF is dedicated to maintaining balanced ecosystems for the preservation of the planet and all its inhabitants.

IFAW

Founded in 1969, the International Fund for Animal Welfare saves individual animals, animal populations and habitats all over the world. With projects in more than 40 countries, IFAW provides hands-on assistance to animals in need, whether it’s dogs and cats, wildlife and livestock, or rescuing animals in the wake of disasters. We also advocate saving populations from cruelty and depletion, such as our campaign to end commercial whaling and seal hunts.

iWorry

The iWorry campaign aims to raise awareness of the illicit ivory trade and its devastating impact on elephant populations. Demand for ivory has grown significantly in recent years. Presently, one kilo of ivory can be worth up to USD $2,000. The increasing value of ivory, frequently referred to as white gold, has attracted the attention of organized criminal networks and ivory has even been used to fund terrorist organizations. It is estimated that up to 36,000 elephants are being killed annually to satisfy this growing demand.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust embraces all measures that compliment the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife. These include anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness, addressing animal welfare issues, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, rescuing and hand rearing elephant and rhino orphans, along with other species that can ultimately enjoy a quality of life in wild terms when grown.

VETPAW

The mission of Veterans Empowered to Protect African Wildlife is to provide meaningful employment to post-9/11 U.S. veterans by utilizing their expertise to train and support Tanzanian anti-poaching rangers and their communities. Our vets work side-by-side with rangers, implementing infantry tactics, unit cohesion, medical skills, and other game-changing tools in the modern-day poaching war. We also ensure that the rangers have the best equipment to fight well-armed poachers.

VETPAW promotes relationship building in East Africa, elevating the perception of the military at home and abroad, while helping protect irreplaceable wildlife. The specialized skills and commitment of our vets dovetail with the dedication of Tanzania to conserve its most valuable assets.

Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS)

MISSION: WCS saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, conservation action, education, and inspiring people to value nature. VISION: WCS envisions a world where wildlife thrives in healthy lands and seas, valued by societies that embrace and benefit from the diversity and integrity of life on earth. To achieve our mission, WCS, based at the Bronx Zoo, harnesses the power of its Global Conservation Program in more than 60 nations and in all the world’s oceans and its five wildlife parks in New York City, visited by 4 million people annually. WCS combines its expertise in the field, zoos, and aquarium to achieve its conservation mission.

96 Elephants

WCS is leading global efforts to save Africa’s elephants and end the current poaching and ivory trafficking crisis. In September, WCS launched its 96 Elephants campaign (www.96elephants.org) to amplify and support the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) “Partnership to Save Africa’s Elephants” by stopping the killing, stopping the trafficking, and stopping the demand. The WCS campaign focuses on: securing effective moratoria on domestic sales of ivory; bolstering elephant protection; and educating the public about the link between ivory consumption and the elephant poaching crisis.

Tories must step up on animal welfare | Letters

The League Against Cruel Sports’ Chris Luffingham suggests ways the Conservatives might start shedding their ‘nasty party’ image

There’s a simple solution to the Conservative dilemma about being perceived as uncaring (Report, 30 November). Don’t just talk about compassion – prove it. Supporting foxhunting and the ivory trade, and recently being perceived as denying that animals have feelings, have been PR disasters for the Conservatives.
