The world can't wait

For what?

For us to act. Every day, billions of animals experience unbearable suffering. It’s time for us to realize that how animals live and are treated is deeply connected to our health and the health of the planet we all share.

At World Animal Protection, we move the world to protect animals because the life of every animal matters. We believe that together we can change the world by changing the lives of animals.

Changing the world for animals takes time. But that’s our commitment to animals here and around the world. All we need from you today is a hand.

How can you help?

It’s easier than you think. There are simple changes we can all make to our daily routines to improve the lives of animals:

  • Choose humanely raised food when grocery shopping
  • Find entertainment that doesn’t exploit captive wildlife
  • Use your voice to influence government and corporations

Choosing what to eat is complicated and personal. There are so many factors that play a role, and the countless labels don’t usually make it easier. Our tools can help decode those labels and help you make informed choices that will improve the lives of animals.


Our world is changing. The climate crisis means more wildfires, floods and droughts that could destroy habitats, kill millions of animals and displace millions of people. When animals lose their environment, so do we. But with action today and planning for tomorrow, we can make a difference together.
People everywhere want to see wildlife. It’s natural. What’s not natural, is that the demand to be close to wild animals means that dolphins and other animals are held captive and made to perform. That’s not entertainment and together we can do better.


We do everything we can to give animals a better life, here in Canada and around the world. With the best available science and our collaborative approach, that’s the promise we’ve kept for decades. But we can’t do it alone. Will you join us?
