You can help unleash the power of philanthropy by partnering with us, so together we can take bold action and create real-world solutions that make an immediate and lasting impact.
The problems we face are urgent, complicated, and resistant to change. Real solutions demand creativity, hard work and involvement from people like you.
Your support is needed
We are seeking your support to address the challenges that COVID-19 has brought to IFAW for both the animals and the places they call home.
We welcome gifts of any amount in support of our mission and we thank you for taking this step to help animals and people thrive together. Gifts of $5,000* or more may be restricted to any of our programme priorities (below).
Room to Roam – More than 60% of elephants live in or migrate into areas outside of formally protected spaces, this makes them vulnerable in many ways including their greatest threat to their survival, poaching. Together, we can connect protected spaces and create the room elephants need to roam. A transformative gift to the Room to Roam Campaign, will increase the chances for survival of African elephants and help animals and people thrive together.
Disaster Response – Now more than ever, the effects of climate change are dramatically increasing the frequency and intensity of disasters. Fires, floods, and severe weather events cause sheer devastation and destruction and affect people and animals in ways we never thought. In the past two decades, IFAW has helped over 300,000 animals around the world. But we need your help so we can continue to rescue, rehabilitate, release or re-home animals from disasters and give them a second chance at life.
Marine Mammal Conservation (research & rescue) - Marine mammals are increasingly affected by fishing gear entanglements, ocean noise, vessel collisions, whaling and climate change. If we don’t act now, these threats facing marine life will lead to species extinction and will have devastating effects on our planet. We aim to protect millions of marine species from danger as we partner with governments, non-government organisations, communities and our supporters to take bold action and protect the world’s oceans.
Wildlife Crime – Our global network is on the frontlines to ensure that animals have the protection they need from the illegal forces that threaten their survival. Our Wildlife Rangers, Detection Dogs and Wildlife Security Handlers, Policy and Advocacy teams, Businesses and Communities are leading the way in the fight against the serious crimes of illegal wildlife poaching, trafficking and trade. IFAW also collaborates with World Wildlife Fund, TRAFFIC and online technology companies, to convene the Coalition to End Wildlife Trafficking Online. The Coalition has reported removing or blocking over 3 million listings for endangered and threatened species and associated products from their online platforms to date. To learn about the current global state of illegal wildlife trade, check out this update from Matt Morley, Program Director Wildlife Crime.

* Did you know Public and Private Ancillary Funds that grant at least 4% more than their minimum annual distribution across the 2019-20 and 2020-21 financial years will be eligible for a partial ‘credit’ which they can use to reduce their minimum distribution in subsequent financial years?
