Send e-cards and help wildlife charities spread the word!

 

One way to help animal charities is to help them spread the word about the work they are doing. 

Sending e-cards is a great way to do this - the recipient has an e-card from you in their inbox which makes a nice change from junk email;  and you have done your bit and taken an action to spread the word and help charities help wildlife.

 
Help snow leopards with an e-card  The Snow Leopard Trust has e-cards you can send for free, and you can help snow leopards in the process!   There are some fantastic photos and you'll be spoilt for choice!  There are gorgeous pics for lots of occasions - birthday, autumn, winter holiday season - Click here to visit to visit the Snow Leopard Trust.

The World Land Trust helps wildlife by creating and protecting nature reserves so giving species a place to call home.   As people destroy more and more wildlife habitat, so this work the charity is doing becomes increasingly important.  

They have a range of e-cards including seasonal ones but there are also other wildlife e-cards which can be used for any occasion.  And all for free!  The wildlife e-cards feature a number of different species, from birds and bugs, to snakes and monkeys.   There are also scenery ecards and wildlife art which includes a toucan, African Lion and elephants.
