Animals in the wild

We are fighting to save wild animals and keep them where they belong – in the wild.

Pangolins are now considered the most heavily-trafficked animal in the world.
We are putting pressure on world leaders to implement a ban on the global wildlife trade

Protecting wild animals from cruelty and exploitation

The protection of wild animals is an urgent, global issue.

Whether farmed for meat and by-products, or caught up in the illegal wildlife trade, many wild animals face the threat of extinction. Other wild animals are exploited for entertainment in blood sports like bear baiting and bullfighting.

With your help, World Animal Protection moves the world to protect these wild animals from exploitation and fights to keep them in the wild where they belong.
