People support us in many ways and we are grateful to each and every one.
Whether you come to one of our events, run a marathon or a mile, hold a coffee morning or show your support by shopping from your sofa, every pound makes a big difference.
Our Carbon for Conservation scheme provides a tangible way to support habitat protection and re-wilding projects in the spirit of carbon offsetting. Whenever you fly, you can use the carbon calculator to contribute to our scheme to re-green!
Our Explorer Club is new for 2020 and has been designed to give you an exclusive insight into our work. You don’t have to be travelling to the ends of the earth to be part of the Explorers Against Extinction community – but you do need to be committed to protecting Mother Nature and have a passion for wildlife and wild spaces. Find out more!
Make a gift to fund a specific project, or an area of conservation work, based on your interests. We are connected to projects worldwide from tree planting and field research to wildlife rehabilitation and community outreach programmes so drop us a line and tell us what interests you so we can match you with a project.
Can you volunteer your time, or do you have a skill that would help our small team? Perhaps you could staff a stall, curate an exhibition, or help out at a show or event?
You don’t have to run 26 miles to stand up for elephants and other threatened species – there are plenty of fun and creative ways to help raise funds and awareness from organising an event to taking on one of our charity challenges. Check out our Charity Challenges or download the Fundraising Guide here.
Every pound counts so whatever you choose to donate helps to make a difference – £7 could feed an anti-poaching dog for a week; £20 could fund a raincoat for a ranger ; £75 could pay the wage of a community scout on a 10 day patrol; £900 could fund a mobile veterinary clinic for a fortnight.

It doesn’t cost you a penny extra but makes a big difference to us!
