Friends scheme

Our Friends Scheme is an excellent way to support our conservation work. We are committed to saving threatened animals, plants, habitats and communities around the world but we could not continue this amazing work without the support and generosity of individuals like you.

How can your donations help?

A regular £5 gift 

Could contribute to the training of three community teachers in Sahamalaza, northwest Madagascar, who can then teach classes of 30 primary school children each in wildlife conservation.

A regular £10 gift 

Could pay for 40 trees per month to be replanted connecting fragmented forest on Negros, Philippines – which is a world conservation ‘hot spot.’ 

A regular £20 gift

Could contribute to the transport costs of three African penguin chicks from a local African care centre to colonies in South Africa's Western Cape for release back into the wild.
