Animals and habitats need you now
The lingering economic impacts of COVID-19 and the increasing frequency and intensity of climate-related disasters are taking an immense toll on individual animals and populations, people and the place we call home.
We’ve identified where animals need your help the most—and we’re using innovative solutions right now to make a lasting impact for animals.
We need your help to succeed. Transformative gifts will help animals worldwide. Through your support we can make the most impact for animals.
North Atlantic right whales
The North Atlantic right whale (NARW) is critically endangered, with only 340 individual animals remaining. Its extinction would have cascading negative effects throughout the marine ecosystem.
Between 2003 and 2018, 90% of known NARW deaths resulted from entanglement or vessel strikes – both horrific ways to die. Climate change exacerbates their plight, as warming waters force the whales further north in search of food, putting them at increased risk. With your support, we can take urgent action – driving public awareness, pushing for regulatory change, and promoting innovative solutions – to save North Atlantic right whales from being lost forever.
Room to Roam
More than 60% of Africa’s elephants live in or migrate into areas outside of national parks and other protected spaces. This makes them vulnerable to human-wildlife conflict and their greatest threat to their survival—poaching. Together, we can create a network of protected spaces where elephants and other animals can safely migrate and people can thrive alongside wildlife. A transformative gift to the Room to Roam Campaign protects wild spaces and wildlife, helps rangers stop poachers, and supports sustainable economic opportunities for people in Kenya, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi.
Your gift to the Animal Rescue Campaign will help rescue more animals in crisis and return them home.
Now more than ever, the effects of climate change are dramatically increasing the frequency and intensity of disasters. Fires, floods, droughts and severe weather events cause devastation and destruction and impact people, pets, and wildlife alike.
Human-caused threats to animals like oil spills and illegal wildlife trade leave animals injured or orphaned. Ocean pollution can entangle wildlife and shifting tides cause dolphins to get stranded.
The Animal Rescue Campaign is an ambitious effort to that will help the responders can get there in time—and create new initiatives to help the most animals.
Your gift to what matters most
Gifts of any amount help rescue and protect animals wherever there is the greatest need. Gifts of $10,000 or more may be directed to your preferred program or provide membership to Global Council, IFAW’s premier supporter group.
