There has been an 80% decline in marine turtles over 3 generations.

Adopt a Snow Leopard

The snow leopard is a vulnerable species, with as little as 4,000 left in the wild.

Adopt a Lion

It is estimated that 75% of lion populations are in decline.

Adopt a Leopard

Amur leopards are critically endangered with only around 90 left in the wild.

Adopt a Panda

Adopt a Jaguar

Jaguars now occupy less than half of their historic habitat.

Adopt a Rhino

Three African rhinos are killed by poaching every day in South Africa.

This primate is endangered with only around 1,004 left in the wild.


60% of the earth's wildlife populations have been lost since 1970 according to the WWF's 2018 Living Planet report.

This includes more than 4,000 species of mammal, bird, fish, reptile and amphibian. Key causes of these terrible statistics are manmade factors including climate change, deforestation and pollution.

WWF is a global conservation organisation dedicated to reversing these trends by protecting the natural environment and the animals that depend on it. When you adopt an animal with WWF you are helping to fund their vital conservation work by making a regular payment from just £3.00 a month – that’s pretty much the cost of a cup of coffee.

With your adoption you help to:

The populations of many species have fallen dramatically since the turn of the 20th century. Some, like the tiger, have been hunted to near extinction. Others, like the orangutan, have simply lost their homes as forests have been cleared to make way for agriculture or development. Adopting an animal will provide WWF with the money it needs to help keep these species around in the wild for future generations to enjoy.

Some of the most important work WWF does is the preservation and restoration of natural habitats. We have lost many species because humans increasingly encroach on their habitat. This is not something that is an inevitable consequence of growing populations. With a little planning and education, this needless destruction can be avoided. By adopting an animal you will be contributing to the protection of wild habitats of many endangered species.

Perhaps the single greatest threat to many critically endangered species like the rhino or the elephant is illegal poaching. Adopting an animal will provide WWF with the money it needs to help fund anti-poaching patrols and purchase equipment such as drone technology that can be used to keep animals protected.

In some parts of the world people like to keep wild animals as pets and in some cultures animal body parts are considered to have medicinal value. This means that some animals are captured and sold on the black market whilst others are simply killed for their body parts even though there is no scientific evidence suggesting they have any medicinal value. By adopting an animal you will be helping to fund WWF’s efforts in stopping the wildlife trade, lobbying governments to enforce bans and educate the public. Hopefully all of that will reduce the demand and lead to less needless killing of animals.

Genetic Diversity Of Lions Decreasing 

Explorers and settlers have been warning for more than a hundred years about the negative impact of hunting lions and other wild animals in Africa. Now the latest research bears out these fears and has revealed the true impact of predation on lions. Lion numbers in the range studied have plunged and it would seem that their genetic fitness has also experienced a decline. The study reveals that lions killed by hunters over a century ago were more genetically diverse than today’s African lions. 

Bengal Tigers In India Suffer From High Stress Levels 

A New study of tigers in three Indian tiger reserves has found that they are about 20 per cent more stressed than the 200 Amur tigers roaming the Russian Far East. The team of researchers made up of both Indians and Russians measured the stress levels of the tigers by studying the metabolites present in tiger faeces.  The lead researcher says that tigers undergoing prolonged periods of increased stress will see their fitness and immunity affected. 

Research In To Baffling Deaths Of Australian Sea Turtles 

The latest research surrounding environmental stressors caused by human activity and how it is harming coastal green sea turtle populations has been released. It is hoped the research will inform future conservation efforts. The study sought to evaluate the health of turtles, the quality of water and any other factors that may have caused the catastrophic mass death of Australian green turtles. The researchers say they found evidence of heavy metals with cobalt in particular present in sea turtle populations. 

Elephant Tusks Never Grow Back 

The tusk and horn of the elephant and rhino make them iconic and is unfortunately the same reason both species are endangered. Both poachers and hunters look to target the rhino because many people incorrectly believe their horns have healing powers. Elephants are targeted for their ivory which is seen as a status symbol and even a financial investment in Asia. There is a however a question that many people ask, do tusks and horns ever grow back?
