Do you love wildlife?
Did you know that thousands of humans around the world are working to help, protect and better understand our wildlife?
Many people don’t know much about these incredible humans and the amazing work that they do for wildlife.
Some are standing guard to protect wildlife directly, like the brave humans who watch over rhinos in Africa. Some work to educate others, helping to spread understanding and change global behaviours, like many here in Europe working to inspire people of all ages to help wildlife through their educational programs. Others gather data, so we can better understand the species and their habitats, and use this knowledge to protect them in future, like researchers studying amphibians in Central America.
Their work is more needed than ever before, and yet they are often left to struggle with a range of issues as they strive to make a difference.
As someone who has worked with wildlife for many years, I read about these struggles every day. Often, people working in my field reach out to me for help with the issues they are faced with. Some I have faced myself, others I can barely begin to imagine.
It’s time to help them.
Humans working for wildlife deserve to be supported, respected and appropriately remunerated for the vital work they do for wildlife.
I’m here to help make that happen, but I can’t do it alone.
I am campaigning to help do my bit to make a difference.
But I’m going to need your help.
The #humans4wildlife campaign aims to:
CELEBRATE the amazing humans who work to help, protect and better understand wildlife species around the world
Raise AWARENESS of the issues they face
Gather meaningful DATA via our #humans4wildlife research project to drive CHANGE in the field of wildlife work
