If you've not heard about WildAid before then now is time to take a look at what this group is doing! WildAid is uniquely focused on raising awareness to reduce the demand for threatened and endangered species products and to increase public support for wildlife conservation.
These are just some of things that they have accomplished:

  • Helping to secure international protection for the whale shark and basking shark under the UN's Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES)
  • Helping to secure shark finning bans in the US, EU, Costa Rica and Ecuador
  • Helping to reduce consumption by between 10 and 30% in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand and Singapore
  • Repeatedly reaching up to 1 billion viewers a week with celebrities asking consumers to stop purchasing illegal wildlife products
We love what the are doing and encourage you take a moment to see what you can do to help.
