Thank you SO MUCH!

Our For People, For Wildlife appeal has now finished, but our work helping even more people set up sustainable livelihoods and protect endangered wildlife has just begun!

We want to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who donated to the appeal – which was match funded by the UK government.

Whether you visited our Carnaby pop-up, took part in a fundraising event, or donated online, we are so grateful for your support.

Your money truly will make a difference to the lives of people, animals and precious habitats around the world. We’ll keep you updated on our progress in the months to come.

If you missed your chance and would still like to donate, without match funding, every pound you give can still make a huge difference for animals at threat of extinction.

The futures of people and wildlife are intertwined

Around the world, animals face extinction. At ZSL we believe saving wildlife starts with people.
On the edges of national parks in Nepal and Kenya, people live side-by-side with wild animals.

Life is tough. Crops are trampled by elephants and livestock attacked by tigers. Families must risk their lives entering the forest to gather firewood and graze cattle, practices that damage wildlife habitats.

Under pressure, some people are pushed to wildlife crime, like hunting bushmeat to feed their families. Worse still, they can become vulnerable to exploitation by the international illegal wildlife trade.

Independent, sustainable livelihoods

We’re teaming up with these communities to help them set up sustainable livelihoods – like dairies, ecotours, guesthouses, beauty salons and tailor shops. We help with start-up costs, train nature guides and develop of other peaceful ways to live alongside wildlife.

With reliable income and their families’ future secure, they’re empowered to protect the forest and its wildlife. Helping it to regrow and thrive.
