Care for the Wild – About us

Care for the Wild International dedicated to the protection of wildlife in the UK and around the globe.

We have been around for 30 years and we operate under three key areas:

Rhino_RPDWhat this means is that we run, work with and support a range of projects around the world, and help animals from hedgehogs in Horsham to tigers in Thailand! We also raise awareness of the key issues impacting on animals – this includes the horrific poaching of elephants and rhinos, the badger cull in the UK and the way animals are exploited by the tourist industry.

Don’t just take our word for it though – here’s what people have said about us!

Chris Packham with Philip Mansbridge“Care for the Wild clearly know their game. I’ve talked polar bears with them, I’ve talked hares with them, and I love their RIGHT-tourism project around animals in tourism. But, I’ve been considerably impressed by their fight against the badger cull. They’ve shown guts, persistence and knowledge, and have mobilised their Badger Army all around the country, making a real dent in the government’s claimthat the cull is justified. May they continue for another 30 years.” Chris Packham, PHD Zoology and BBC Presenter

Brian May with Philip Mansbridge“Dominic’s work (Care for the Wild’s Campaign and Policy Advisor) in the last two years, speaking up against the persecution of British Wild Animals, has been an example and inspiration to us all.”
Brian May CBE – Lead Guitarist of Queen and founder of Save Me

Wendy Turner-Webster with son“I’ve supported Care for the Wild for many years, and have witnessed some impressive campaigns. They have fought against the fur trade and the ivory trade, and they helped ensure slow lorises were protected by CITES. For a small team, they have had a big impact, and I’m proud to be associated with them. Happy Birthday!” Wendy Turner Webster, TV Presenter and Animal Advocate

And here’s some words from a long-time supporter:

“I admire Care for the Wild for its appetite and willingness ‘to be out there’ in terms of organising and promoting protests and demonstrations, as well as achieving good visibility on the radio, mainstream newspapers and news websites as well as on social media.

They are determined and resolute in the way they pursue key issues, eg opposition to the badger cull, and they are innovative in addressing hidden issues relating to conservation and the ethical treatment of animals such as its campaign concerning RIGHT tourism. Well done Care for the Wild – keep up the great work.”  Mike True, Supporter.
