Animals in the wild

We work around the globe to protect and save wild animals – and to keep wild animals in the wild, where they belong.

Stopping the suffering of wild animals

From the seas to the deserts, wild animals face the ongoing threat of cruelty and abuse. Bears are captured and forced to fight dogs. Marine mammals, such as whales and dolphins, get trapped in discarded fishing gear. Wild animals are traded as exotic pets. But long-lasting, genuine change is possible, so we move governments and communities worldwide to protect wild animals – and by supporting our campaigns, you can help to keep wild animals safe and wild.

Alternatives exist – so help us fight the bear bile industry.

Help tackle bear baiting and bear dancing.

Stop 'ghost' fishing gear threatening sea life.

Sold as a luxury, caged civet coffee causes huge suffering.
