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. Our objective is to fight the illegal wildlife trade (IWT) 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 our 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
