Together, our international programs deliver immediate and lasting impact for animals, people and the place we call home. Each is based in science, rooted in local communities, globally-scalable, economically-viable, and always for the long-term.
Local communities can provide powerful protection.
As disasters around the world increase in intensity and frequency, IFAW’s Disaster Response & Risk Reduction team is busy working to save animal lives, mitigate impact, assist vulnerable communities and provide resilience-building resources.
Millions of marine species live in our ocean, and they are all in danger. Our team is working to protect the place they call home. By making the ocean safer and healthier, we can save lives and livelihoods.
Our rescue teams save wildlife that have been orphaned, injured, displaced or confiscated in illegal trade. We rescue animals one by one, anytime, anywhere. And we work to rehabilitate rescued animals and return them to the wild.
