Extinction is Forever

The rate of species extinctions is accelerating. The health of ecosystems is deteriorating more rapidly than ever. This Endangered Species Day, May 17, you can make a difference. Never buy illegal or unsustainable wildlife products. When the buying stops, the killing can too.

Ways to Help

Wildlife trafficking is a multi-billion dollar criminal industry

Driven by demand in expanding economies, the illegal trade in wildlife products threatens the survival of endangered species. WildAid’s programs persuade consumers to stop buying illicit products like ivory, rhino horn and shark fin soup. We also work with leaders, partners and communities to protect marine reserves, reduce climate change impacts, and increase support for conservation.
