We are excited to announce the launch of The Wild Fund — a new, living fund that will support our initiatives to protect biodiversity with partners around the globe. With strong Board leadership and support from Newman’s Own Foundation and the August A. Busch III Charitable Trust, we are halfway to our first-year goal of $1.5 million. And with your support we can get the rest of the way there!
Through The Wild Fund we will address critical conservation challenges and expand our key initiatives: Asian elephants in Cambodia, marine turtles in the eastern Pacific, great apes in Central Africa, and threatened trees in key landscapes globally and soon here in the U.S. And there’s far more to come.
To celebrate The Wild Fund launch, we invite you to join us and get #wild4elephants! Create, wear and share your uniquely designed elephant masks on social media. Remember to tag us at @WildEarthAllies and use the hashtag #wild4elephants.
The Wild Fund will help us to realize our vision of a world where wildlife flourishes in healthy ecosystems that sustain us all. We believe in efficiently moving funds out the door to our field programs and partnerships, which has earned us a 4-star rating on Charity Navigator for seven consecutive years. Our approach to operate with a lean structure, and a solid commitment to optimism, cultural respect, shared learning and integrity has also recently earned us the Platinum Seal of Transparency, the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar.
All of us at Wild Earth Allies want to express how thankful we are for your support of earth’s wildlife. By collaborating with local partners and individuals like you, we are making remarkable progress in the face of serious threats.
