International demand for Africa’s iconic wildlife is causing hundreds of thousands of animals immense suffering and putting their survival in jeopardy. Our report details the ‘Big 5’ and ‘Little 5’ animals at risk
Our team is on the ground working with local authorities and rescue centres to urgently help some of the world’s most iconic animals who continue to be at grave risk as fires blaze across the Amazon. We estimate that millions of wild, even endangered animals are being killed, affected or suffering.
We handed in the animal sentience petition that 100,000 of you signed calling on the government to recognise animal sentience - the fact that animals can feel pain and emotion - in law before we leave the EU.
Thanks to your support, a landmark ruling at the international CITES conference means that baby elephants can no longer be taken from the wild in Zimbabwe and Botswana and sold to captive facilities around the world
