EVERY HALF HOUR AN ELEPHANT IS KILLED

Poaching and illegal trade in ivory is the single largest threat to elephants today, killing on average one elephant every half hour. That equals about 20 000 elephants every year.

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 i Africa and Indonesia. Wildhood’s overriding objective is to fight poaching and trafficking to preserve our most iconic and threatened species from extinction in their natural habitats. The last decade’s strong growth in Asia has led to a rising demand for parts of wild animals, for traditional medical purposes and 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.

  • Help increase the knowledge about poaching and wildlife trafficking

We are determined to create a change for the threatened species! To optimize our impact, we forward 100 % of all funds raised to our local partners on the ground. This is made possible thanks to the partners back in Sweden who help us cover our costs. The funds will go straight to the local organizations that Wildhood have chosen to support and work with on the ground. Do you want to contribute to the fight against poaching and illegal trade?
