Ending Wildlife Exploitation
Wild animals have a right to a wild life. Millions of wild animals are taken from their homes or bred in captivity each year to be exploited at tourist attractions, sold in pet stores, or killed for their body parts.
Marine mammals are held captive in tanks and forced to perform tricks for audiences. Reptiles, birds, amphibians, and small mammals are bred in warehouses where death and injury are seen as the cost of doing business to keep shelves stocked at pet stores. Globally, cruel industries such as big cat cub petting, elephant riding, bear bile farming, and trophy hunting persist.
We know change is possible. We are working to transform the systems that exploit, harm, and commercialize wild animals and fight to keep them in the wild where they belong.
We identify opportunities to aid animals affected by disasters, rescue animals from suffering and harm, and work with partner sanctuaries around the world who are caring for rescued animals.
