The Amazon in Flames

If you’ve followed the news recently, you know that the Amazon rainforest, a fortress for life on Earth, is burning. This year’s fires are blazing at double the rate of 2018.

The Amazon is the world’s largest intact tropical forest. It our planet’s greatest home for wild species of plants and animals. The forests store and sequester carbon and help curtail our planet’s climate crisis. They define the livelihoods of all Amazonian people – indigenous and non-indigenous, urban and rural.

The Amazon Basin is home to more than 1,500 bird species, 550 species of reptiles, and some 500 species of mammals. It provides irreplaceable habitat for iconic species including the jaguar, tapir, pink river dolphin, and harpy eagle.

WCS welcomes the growing number of voices from around that world that express concern about what is happening in the Brazilian portion of the Amazon, where we have worked for years to protect wildlife, habitat, and the rights of indigenous people to control their land.

Please consider making a donation to WCS today to help protect the animals of the Brazilian Amazon, and wildlife and wild places around the world.

Funding cuts put species at risk

We’re losing animals at an alarming rate

The Administration has proposed cuts to programs at the U.S. State Department and USAID that are vital to protecting elephants, tigers, gorillas, and other endangered species both in the U.S. and around the world. The time is now to step in and protect the future of wildlife.

When you see elephants, tigers, and gorillas, you see majestic, irreplaceable animals that deserve a chance for survival. Poachers, smugglers, and wildlife traders see ivory, pelts, claws, bushmeat, and baby animals to be sold illegally as pets.

Our goal: raise $50,000 by June 30th to help protect these creatures

Burmese Star Tortoise

A few decades ago, there were just a few hundred Burmese star tortoises left in the world. But with the help of Myanmar’s government and the support of people like you who care about the future of wildlife, WCS was able to help bring these irreplaceable animals back from the brink of extinction.

Today, there are more than 15,000 of them.

The story of the Burmese star tortoise is proof that there is still hope for endangered species — but only if we act quickly and effectively.

Please help us keep fighting for animals on the brink of extinction — make a gift to save the star tortoise and other endangered wildlife today.

Together, we can save habitat vital to tigers, elephants, and many more species

Together we can save irreplaceable wild placesJulie Larsen Maher©WCS

THE TIME TO HELP IS RIGHT NOW

Together we can save irreplaceable wild places, from coral reefs to intact rainforests

Protected areas are vital for the future of animals and people. That’s why WCS is working to safeguard the most ecologically critical landscapes and seascapes around the world. Intact forests are home to two-thirds of all land-based plants and animals, while coral reefs harbor one-quarter of all marine species. And together, these ecosystems provide livelihoods for billions of people.

Our research has found that less than one-quarter of land on Earth and just 13 percent of the world’s oceans are still ecologically intact. As wilderness vanishes—taking with it habitat, food, and water—thousands of species are disappearing. Sixty percent of the world’s large mammals are already listed as threatened with extinction; 90 percent of the ocean’s top predators are gone.

Unless we act now, we risk losing the Earth’s wild places forever. Make a gift to WCS now and help secure protected habitat for elephants, tigers, gorillas, whales, and countless other species.

Elephants young and old are in extreme peril. All three species are listed on the IUCN Red List. The widespread illegal killing of elephants for their tusks has taken down every elephant species and crosses every human border.

And you may have never heard of it
Dear jean paul,

WCS field staff spend a great deal of time working in the wild. They return with remarkable stories about the animals they’ve encountered. Very rarely do these stories involve pangolins.

In the best of times, pangolins aren’t easy to spot. The scale-covered mammals are mainly nocturnal, cryptic, and solitary. But pangolins are also among the most heavily trafficked animals in the world and they’re disappearing fast.

Today is World Pangolin Day—a good day to spread the word that the trade in these incredible creatures continues.

jean paul, we need your help. WCS is leading the charge in the fight against illegal wildlife trafficking, working hand-in-hand with law enforcement around the world. Share this image and help us spread the word about this little-known species that’s in trouble.

Pangolins are one of the world's most trafficked mammals.

In some cultures, pangolins are still considered a delicacy. Like rhino horns, pangolin scales are sometimes even said to provide health benefits (they don’t). These beliefs have led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of animals in recent years.

That’s why, while it may be rare for our field staff to see pangolins in the wild, it’s not at all surprising when these animals turn up in investigations supported by our Wildlife Crimes Unit. Last October alone, the team assisted the Indonesian authorities in five busts involving live pangolins or pangolin scales.

We can’t let this continue, jean paul. Please join us today, World Pangolin Day, by sharing this image and standing up for this unique animal.

Sincerely,

The Wildlife Conservation Society

SAY NO TO OFFSHORE DRILLING IN IRREPLACEABLE HABITAT

Whales in danger

jean paul, a dangerous bill known as the SEA Act could soon reach the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. If it passes, the bill would gut core provisions of the Marine Mammal Protection Act and fast‐track seismic airgun surveys and other activities in the ocean that can harm marine animals. This bill is a serious threat to species including the endangered North Atlantic right whale.

Together, we must oppose this effort to weaken our environmental safeguards and remove protections for wildlife in order to expedite a push for oil and gas exploitation. Tell your legislators today: Vote “NO” on the SEA Act.

HELP STOP THE SLAUGHTER.

Can elephants count on jean paul in 2018?

It’s hard to imagine a better example of joy in the wild than elephants. When elephants reunite, they are downright jubilant, clicking their tusks together, flapping their ears, and trumpeting.

But these heartwarming scenes are rapidly disappearing as poachers and traffickers are driving elephants, tigers, and other endangered wildlife toward extinction. Central Africa alone has lost 60% of its elephants over the last 10 years.

This critical juncture in the fight for elephants’ and so many other species’ survival means your commitment to this fight is more important than ever.

jean paul, show you’ll be there for wildlife before 2018 ends. Make your tax-deductible gift to WCS today and help us reach our $500,000 year-end goal.

Parrots in Peril

They’re social, intelligent, and their ability to mimic all kinds of sounds, including human speech, has made them hugely popular as pets. But today, African grey parrots are paying the price for their appeal. Criminal trafficking networks are wiping them from the wild to fuel the illegal pet trade. It’s one of the critical situations in Central Africa that we need your help to address.

DEADLINE APPROACHING

Help us hit $75,000 to get gorilla conservation efforts to the next level – before it’s too late.

Help NOW with a $5 or more donation that will give wildlife like gorillas a fighting chance for survival >>

Dear jean paul,

As WCS’s Nigeria Country Director, I see the plight of gorillas first hand. That’s why I’m reaching out to you today with this urgent request for help: with only a few days left we still need to raise $26,755 to meet our goal.

It’s so important we have your support, jean paul. If we want to save gorillas from extinction, we must act now.

As hunting, habitat loss, and disease intensify, scientists estimate brutal, irreversible population loss. Unless things change, we will lose 80% of western lowland gorillas over the next few decades.

This is on us to fix – scientists and rangers like my team in Nigeria and compassionate individuals like you from around the world can make a difference. Together, we can bring gorillas back from the brink of extinction. Pitch in $5 or more now to fund science-based strategies that will protect our vulnerable cousins in the wild >>

DONATE $5
DONATE $25
DONATE $50
DONATE $100
DONATE
ANOTHER AMOUNT

Our goal is to raise $75,000 by Monday.

We still have $26,755 to raise and precious little time remaining – but I know how much people like you truly care, jean paul. I know this community can mobilize quickly when the situation is this dire.

For gorillas, there’s no time to waste.

The odds facing gorillas are bleak. Only about 300 Cross River gorillas remain, with about 100 here in Nigeria and we lose a few more every year. At this rate, Cross River gorillas could become extinct in the near future if we don’t increase efforts to protect them. And you can help by pitching in right now >>

When you donate to WCS, you’re helping power the most effective strategies we know will help gorillas survive this crisis:

  • Build new protected parks in critical areas for gorillas
  • Get more patrols on the ground and make sure they have all the equipment they need: uniforms, backpacks, boots, tents, camera-traps, and rations
  • Improve law enforcement that fights illegal trafficking of gorilla bushmeat
  • Clean up dangerous mining operations that kill gorillas by working strategically with consumers, companies, and governments to create “gorilla-certified” mines we know are safe
  • Partner with local governments to keep development projects clear of gorilla habitat, like halting a disastrous superhighway through Cross River State, Nigeria that would make now-remote gorilla habitat accessible – putting every gorilla at risk
  • Get local communities on board with conservation efforts including building new eco-tourist lodges that build jobs and grow local economies

With your help, we’re ramping up the strategies that address the biggest problems faced by gorillas – and we know they can work. While gorilla populations have been in rapid decline, WCS-managed parks are some of the few places they’re staying stable – or even growing.

Gorillas urgently need your help NOW. Give by midnight Monday and help us reach our $75,000 goal – and rush to do whatever it takes to bring gorillas back from the brink of extinction. Just $5 can help!

Only a few days remain to hit our deadline in time – and when it comes to gorillas, there’s little time to waste.

Your help is urgently needed, and I can’t think you enough for being part of this incredible, powerful community. Together, we will make a better world for gorillas to thrive in.

Sincerely,

Andrew Dunn

Gorillas are in dire need of help – or they could go extinct.

Gorilla looking at camera

Give $5 or more »

Dear jean paul,

I see the frightening trends in my work every day: gorillas are in mortal danger.If we do nothing, Cross River gorillas could be extinct in the near future and other species could follow.

If we do nothing, we could lose one of our closest relatives in the wild. Forever.

jean paul, you’ve shown through your past support you’re not the do-nothing type. Now, we urgently need you to act again.

It’s not too late to save gorillas, but we need to act now. In just a few weeks, we need to raise $75,000 to help protect wildlife like gorillas and ramp up the science-based strategies we know will keep them safe.

Anything you can give right now – even $5 – is crucial in stopping gorillas’ rapid slide toward extinction. We don’t have much time to raise this new funding!

DONATE $5
DONATE $25
DONATE $50
DONATE $100

ANOTHER AMOUNT

Your dollars will go straight to work with some of the most powerful, effective strategies we know to fight back against poachers and keep gorillas thriving.

One place where WCS works here in central Africa – the highlands of Kahuki-Biega National Park – is one of the few places gorilla populations are stable and actually growing – even when they’re crashing elsewhere.

But we need to raise $75,000 to push conservation work to the next level. Here’s what we needyour generous help to fund right now:

  • A brand-new Oku Community Reserve to protect Grauer’s gorillas in the Democratic Republic of the Congo – plus funding to maintain it
  • Eco-guard field equipment, including uniforms, backpacks, boots, tents, camera-traps, and rations
  • Patrols in the Okwangwo Division of Cross River National Park in Nigeria
  • A new 4×4 vehicle in Nigeria to help replace old vehicles that can no longer make the long trips to field sites

Projects like these are crucial to helping make sure we can protect gorillas from hunters killing them for meat and bulldozers leveling their forest homes.

It doesn’t happen automatically, jean paul. The parks, the patrols, the growing families of peaceful gorillas, those can only happen when people like you make a choice to step off the sidelines and act.

We must raise $75,000 – are you in? Chip in $5 or more now to help protect intelligent, critically endangered gorillas from dying out.

Doing nothing for gorillas is simply not an option – not if we want future generations to grow up in a world with gorillas thriving in the wild.

Urgent crisis – gorillas are dying out.

It’s not too late to save them – but we need to act NOW

Gorilla on Tree

Dear jean paul,

Gorillas are dying at alarming rates – more than ever before.

Notes from our scientists in the field are full of phrases like “Irreversible decline.” “Extinction.” “Wiped out forever.” – not language anyone takes lightly.

I won’t sugarcoat it: we DO have time to save gorillas – but not very much time.

That’s why I’m asking for your help right now to scale up the gorilla protection efforts that we know work and get more boots on the ground to save gorillas in the wild.

Don’t let this be the last generation of gorillas the world ever sees. Donate now to protect gorillas and other wildlife – even $5 helps.

DONATE $5
DONATE $25
DONATE $50
DONATE $100

ANOTHER AMOUNT

Gorillas are some of our closest relatives in the wild. They have emotions, families, joys, and sorrows. When our researchers study gorillas, they give each a name – and enjoy each gorilla’s distinct personality.

Too many of those personalities have been snuffed out forever – because of human action. We need to act quickly to keep more gorillas safe from the terror of poachers and development.

Gorillas need our help now if they’re going to survive even the next few decades. Help protect gorillas and other wildlife by making your $5 gift to WCS.

We know exactly what to do next. WCS-managed parkså like Kahuzi-Biega National Park are some of the only places gorilla populations are growing.

We need to create more protected places like Kahuzi-Biega where gorillas can laugh, play, and live without fear that men with guns will kill their entire family for meat. We also need to work with governments to strengthen law enforcement – and integrate conservation efforts with development planning, to keep gorilla habitats from being ravaged by bulldozers.

But to do any of that – to scale up the efforts we know are effective – we need your help.

Please don’t wait. There simply isn’t much time left. Give $5 today and help us make sure we don’t lose wildlife like gorillas forever.

John F. Calvelli

jean paul,

Today is World Elephant Day, and it’s coming at a critical moment in the fight for elephants’ survival.

We’re asking everybody who loves elephants and other wildlife to contribute RIGHT NOW because the stakes are so high:

  • Important legislation to stop poachers and traffickers, the U.S. ban on ivory sales, is under attack. Proposed changes to the Endangered Species Act would effectively gut these much-needed elephant protections leaving them more vulnerable to merciless poachers and traffickers.
  • Elephants’ future in the wild is so fragile right now – any setbacks could be catastrophic. We’re learning more about the devastating impact of the poaching crisis and it’s not good. New WCS studies show places like northern Central African Republic, where elephants once thrived, now appear to be totally emptied of these gentle giants.

It’s so important we get as much support for elephants as we can right now that we are offering a special gift for a limited time only: if you donate by midnight tonight, World Elephant Day, we’ll send you this exclusive 96 Elephants bandana.

This exclusive gift for the most committed elephant supporters is our sign of appreciation for all you do. Keep it as a reminder that you are one of the generous people who steps up for elephants when it’s really needed.

Right now is one of those moments, jean paul. Simply put: if we can’t hire more rangers, if we can’t invest in innovative anti-poaching technology, if we can’t defend the ivory ban, more elephants will die.

Your support is the key to making sure that doesn’t happen. To making sure we have all the resources possible to save elephants.

But hurry, World Elephant Day is today and we only have a limited number of bandanas left. Please give now to make sure you don’t miss out!

Thank you for all you do,

jean paul,

You do a lot for wildlife.

And in a world that constantly seems full of dire news, I wanted to make sure you saw this amazing video of how your support saves lives in the wild.

Check it out:

Wild Elephant Rescue video

After the herd of 11 elephants was found trapped in the muddy pit – actually, it’s a bomb crater from the Vietnam War – WCS was called to help.

With only a few hundred elephants left in Cambodia, losing this herd would have been a huge blow. Your support makes their rescue and the charming scenes of elephants helping each other out of the muck, possible.

jean paul, if you believe tigers are worth more alive than dead we need your support right now to beat the poachers.

Chip in $5 or more now >>

jean paul,

We’re losing the last wild tigers.

Humans have killed them to profit from selling their body parts, destroyed critical habitat and now there are fewer than 4,000 left. If we do nothing, they will continue to disappear from forest after forest until there are none left.

It’s up to us – those who believe a tiger is worth more thriving in the wild than killed, skinned and turned into rugs and wallets – to save them.

Now is the time to do just that. Tomorrow is International Tiger Day, and we’ve set an ambitious goal of $40,000 in just two days – that’s $10 for every tiger left in the wild. Can you help? Show you’re on the side that wants to see a future for tigers and other wildlife and give to our International Tiger Day Challenge right now. Even $5 would help. Can you chip in?

jean paul, donating to WCS is one of the most powerful actions you can take to save wild tigers in this critical time for their future. WCS has more boots on the ground protecting tigers than any other non-profit organization in the world.

If you give to the International Tiger Day Challenge, you’ll join the team using the most, effective methods out there to protect tigers like:

  • Cracking down on poachers and traffickers. People looking to profit off killing tigers and selling their body parts are a key threat to their survival. WCS’s Wildlife Crimes Unit works with local police to track down these criminals and bring them to justice. Our work is so effective, we don’t even need to capture all the criminals to get them off the job: In one former hotspot in Indonesia, 10% of the former traffickers quit on their own, too frightened to continue their criminal ways after we had locked up about 60% of the traffickers in the area. Give now to help put poachers behind bars >>
  • Pioneering state-of-the-art science to track tigers. Counting and tracking tigers is essential to saving them. It’s only with accurate information that we can know the places where tigers are in the most trouble and which strategies are working to protect them. Our sophisticated network of camera “traps,” radio tracking and more to give us the most accurate picture possible of how tigers are doing in the wild. Give now to invest in life-saving conservation science >>
  • Protecting the most critical habitats. Our work to save tigers focuses on “source sites” – areas that have the most potential to support a wild tiger comeback. This enables us to concentrate resources where they can have the biggest impact. Give now to protect the places with the best hope for wildlife >>

We have a plan to bring wild tigers back, jean paul, but whether we can achieve it depends on what people like you and me do in moments like this.

Please, help us meet our International Tiger Day Challenge and be a part of saving wildlife like tigers forever – a legacy I can promise you’ll never regret.

Thank you for your support.

World Ranger Day – July 31. Rangers like Frank Moutengue are wildlife heroes. In the Republic of Congo’s Nouabale-Ndoki National Park, Frank and his fellow rangers put themselves on the front lines of the struggle to protect animals from armed poachers.

WORLD RANGER DAY – JULY 31

Thank a Ranger

Rangers are wildlife heroes. In the Republic of Congo’s Nouabale-Ndoki National Park, they put themselves on the front lines of the struggle to protect animals from armed poachers. They risk their lives on behalf of forest elephants and other imperiled species.

They’re not alone. Around the world, wildlife rangers are doing dangerous, important work to protect wildlife. World Ranger Day is July 31. That means it’s a great time to send rangers a message of thanks as they take on their dangerous and difficult task. Let them know that you stand behind them. Send a thank-you note today >>

We’re still $21,960 short of critical conservation funds

Time’s running out – make your gift now.

Dear jean paul,

With less than 24 hours to go before our urgent fiscal year end deadline we are still short on critical funds. Without more support, critical conservation programs are at risk – will you help?

We know that elephants are in crisis – poachers are killing elephants for their ivory faster than they can recover, putting their future in the wild in jeopardy.

And we know what we MUST do to save them:

  • Create protected areas: In India, WCS staff worked with local government officials in expanding four protected areas in the Western Ghats region, home to 5,000 Asian elephants, the largest Asian elephant population in the world.
  • Put more boots on the ground: In northern Congo, one of the most important places for African forest elephants, we’ve quadrupled our patrols and locked up poaching kingpins.
  • Crack down on criminals: WCS has developed intelligence-based enforcement to make sure the criminal networks profiting from killing endangered species are caught by the government and punished. It works. In Indonesia, the successful prosecution rate is over 85 percent, compared to 5 percent where we are not involved.

There’s one more thing we know: How effective we can be depends on what resources we have on hand. Today’s your last chance to help us do more. And for elephants’ sake, I hope you don’t miss it.

Today is the last day to help us meet our fiscal year end goal and help turn the tide for elephants and other wildlife threatened by poachers. Don’t wait jean paul – give.

Make sure the answer is YES. Our records show you haven’t given to our campaign yet – but we wouldn’t be asking if it wasn’t important. There are just three days left, please give now.

A camera trap – one of our key conservation tools – finds an elephant in Yankari

Can we count on your help?
Donate now.

Dear jean paul,

Urgent update: Insufficient funding in key elephant sites – including in Nigeria’s Yankari Reserve – puts Nigeria’s last viable elephant herd in grave danger.

Making matters more perilous for elephants: funding gaps exist across multiple key elephant sites throughout Africa including the Ruaha-Katavi Landscape in Tanzania and many more across Africa.

Help make sure we can continue to put resources where they’re most needed in the next fiscal year and give now.

Yankari is a special place. And one where WCS has been able to make tremendous progress since the local government made us co-managers. In 2015, elephant deaths were down by eighty percent.

That’s why this funding shortage is so deeply troubling.

Without more support from people like you, this progress – and elephants’ hope of survival – will slip away.

We are counting on your support to keep poachers at bay and save wildlife in Yankari and other essential sites. Will you help?

Backed by your support our staff in Yankari are working around the clock to protect elephants, using tools like GPS collars to track herds through the park. But poachers and the sophisticated trafficking networks that support them are always finding new ways to kill. To win, we must stay one step ahead of them. Always.

The situation is so fragile for this herd, according to the latest report from our staff on the ground, without more resources, the long-term future for elephants in Nigeria is in doubt and “irreparable damage may result if the situation is allowed to continue.”

It’s serious: but we still have time to prevent the worst in Yankari and other key sites around the world. Right now you can put needed resources toward the most effective strategies that save elephants and other endangered wildlife.

You and I know that too many elephants are dying in the wild. We need more places like Yankari – and we need to make sure they have the resources to stay one step ahead of the poachers and traffickers.

We’re counting on your help – elephants are counting on your help.
