55 elephants are killed every day

Poaching is the single largest threat to elephants today killing on average of 55 elephants every day. Help us protect them for future generations.

We are proud to support Akashinga – the world’s first all female anti-poaching unit. Women empowerment goes conservation!

“I simply refuse to live in a world where elephants, rhinos, lions and pangolins no longer exist in the wild. Through supporting selected anti-poaching units I am dedicated to make as much difference as I can while there is still a chance to save these species.”

Filippa Tarras-Wahlberg, Founder of Wildhood Foundation

Your donation makes 100 % difference

We are determined to make a difference for the threatened species! To maximize our impact we forward 100 % of all funds we raise straight to our local partners on the ground. This is made possible thanks to the partners back in Sweden who help us cover our costs to keep our work going. Do you want to contribute to the fight against poaching? Here’s how you can help!

A small charity with big dreams!

Wildhood Foundation was founded in 2016 as a reaction to the escalating poaching crises targeting wild animals in Africa. Wildhood’s objective is to fight the illegal wildlife trade and to prevent our most iconic and threatened species from getting extinct in the wild. The last decade’s strong economic growth in Asia has led to a rising demand for parts of wild animals, for traditional medical purposes and as status symbols. The illegal wildlife trade is considered to be one of the world’s largest criminal businesses today worth billions of dollars every year.  

Our mission is to:

  • Raise funds to protect wild animals from poaching and illegal wildlife trade
  • Raise awareness to increase the knowledge about poaching and illegal wildlife trade 
  • Help reduce the demand for illegal wildlife products
  • Support local efforts and operations that makes hands on difference on the ground 
  • Donate 100 % of all funds raised to these efforts and operations
