Wildlife Conservation of endandered species, from African animals to polar bears and pandas
The most important thing we can do to help wildlife is to provide conditions in which they can live and thrive - and this means making sure they have the right habitat and sufficient of it.
It is vital to protect wildlife's habitat. If you protect the habitat a Sumatran tiger needs for instance you are also protecting the habitat of all creatures great and small living there. Choose to protect the habitat of one animal, and you will be helping millions of others.
We will be adding more info & more charites below but in the meantime, here are wildlife charities for you to explore & help and there are far more here which relate to specific endangered species. Clearly, this list is not exhaustive by any means - if you would like your charity to be added, please contact Sally
