How you’re helping on the frontline of wildlife protection in Kenya

In this video interview, International Fund for Animal Welfare, James Isiche Director, Eastern Africa, gives a terrific overview of the challenges of working in developing countries like Kenya to protect elephants, rhinos, lions and other wildlife.

James exemplifies IFAW’s approach of relying on local wildlife experts in each country where we work.

Their unique expertise within the communities in which we are working to protect animals has helped IFAW become a catalyst for change everywhere we operate around the world.

As James says in the video, wildlife protection can be a dangerous job for people on the frontline who work with very little resources.

Support from the international community is essential.

IFAW is grateful to our donors who empower people like James to save elephants and other wildlife in Kenya--wildlife that is part of our shared global heritage.

I hope you enjoy this video and help support IFAW staff on the front lines of animal protection by making a donation now.

What an inspiration James is! I was born and brought up in Kenya and share his passion for our beautiful country that has been given something very precious that we need to look after for the world. Let's all make sure we do all we can to keep their world safe.

That man in the video just oozes loveliness and compassion .... what a good ambassador for IFAW !!!

I'm glad I give money to this organisation when I can, some of it obviously had to go on administration, but wherever it goes, it's helping the animals .... wild or not.

I am pleased to be a member of IFAW. However, when is it going to be possible to STOP wildlife programmes being made. Those such as Dimbleby's programmes are a wonderful map for poachers. The rich and famous who also plunder wildlife would be less able to identify the animals they want as trophies. If we want to save wildlife, then more effort must be put into leaving these poor tortured animals alone, not only with rifles, but with cameras. Please put more effort into stopping this mindless exposure of ignorant money- grabbing idiots.
Thanks
