55 elephants are killed every day

Poaching and illegal trade in ivory is the single largest threat to elephants today, killing on average 55 elephants every day. Help us stop the senseless killing!

Wildhood's elephant at Apotek Hjärtat

We are beyond excited that our little elephant can now be found at Apotek Hjärtat. The price is 149 SEK and all profits goes straight to our work to protect wild elephants from poaching and illegal trade.

55 elephants

To raise awareness of the number of elephants that are being killed every day we put 55 life size wodden elephants in the heart of Stockholm city. The installation was well received with lots of visitors, school classes and media coverage.

Help us save the rhinos

Rhino horn is estimated to be the most expensive material on our planet today, illegaly smuggled from Africa to be sold on the black market in Asia. Every 8 hours a rhino is killed for its horn, within our lifetime rhinos might get extinct in the wild.

Wildhood Foundation Annual Report

Wildhood Foundation Annual Report

We are happy to launch Wildhood Foundation’s first Annual Report. Our ambition is to present to you what the funds have contributed to in the field. In other words, the Return of your Investment.

Wildhood Foundation is a small, Swedish non profit organisation

Wildhood Foundation was founded in 2016 as a reaction to the escalating poaching crises and wildlife trafficking targeting wild animals in Africa. Wildhood’s objective is to fight poaching and trafficking to prevent our most iconic and threatened species from getting extinct in their natural habitats. 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 for the use of status symbols. The trade is considered to be one of the world’s largest criminal businesses worth billions of dollars every year. Another major threat to wild animals is habitat loss caused by destruction and elimination of forests and wilderness areas.
