Thank you for choosing to donate to WFN

WFN is a cost-effective charity with a small London team, working to raise a minimum of £1 million a year and channel funding directly to conservation work on the ground. We are completely reliant on donations from individuals, trusts, foundations and corporations. The more we raise, the bigger impact we can have.

Why WFN?

Our Award winners are the ‘action heroes’ of the conservation world and they need your help. They identify and address threats to wildlife by working with local communities to find mutually beneficial solutions to problems including the loss of natural habitat, overexploitation of wild resources, and human-wildlife conflict. Importantly, our winners are usually nationals of the countries where they work, and by training local people, are creating the next generation of conservation leaders.

“WFN is a direct funding charity that really does minimise the bits in-between. The funding goes straight to the winners, who have a lasting impact on global, national and political levels”
