We make sure that animal welfare and conservation are always United States policy priorities.
Depending on who is in office, policy and funding priorities can change. But the need for animal rescue and conservation efforts are constant.
At IFAW, we work to ensure that US funding and policy will always go towards conservation and support animal welfare—no matter who is in charge.
Through coalitions like like the US Global Leadership Coalition – which brings together national security experts, foreign policy advisors, and industry specialists – and direct advocacy to Congress and the Administration, we engage strong bipartisan support for conservation and animal welfare efforts.
We show Administration officials and members of Congress how animal welfare and human welfare are interlinked, as well as how conservation and security are connected.
And we work to ensure that conservation is part of the conversation about how American dollars are spent overseas, and that international conservation is a priority for Americans.
every problem has a solution, every solution needs support.
The problems we face are urgent, complicated, and resistant to change. Real solutions demand creativity, hard work, and involvement from people like you.
