On #InternationalDayoftheSeal, we’re reminded of the cause that founded IFAW in 1969—one man’s vision to end the unnecessary and wasteful commercial seal hunt off of Canada’s east coast. Since then, the Canadian government has banned the killing of baby seals (or whitecoats), Europe and Russia have banned the import of seal products from non-indigenous hunts, and, with your help, the number of seals killed in the last decade has dropped 83%. We’ve made great progress but our work is far from finished. Changing outdated attitudes and policies toward wildlife is not an easy process—it takes time and commitment. But with fresh thinking, bold action, and persistence, we can achieve lasting victories for wildlife and conservation.

Forests are the lifeblood of the earth, providing priceless resources like food, fuel, medicine, and shelter. They're also critical in combating climate change and safeguarding the earth's biodiversity, which is why we must protect these important ecosystems. Through protected areas like national parks and ecologically sustainable human communities, we can find solutions that benefit people, animals, and our planet. #IntlForestDay

On this #InternationalDayofHappiness, we’re giving a big thank you to the animals around the world that help improve our lives! We’ve been researching the connection between animals and community wellbeing. Our findings? Caring for animals and conserving wildlife are linked directly to human health and happiness. Animals provide us with companionship, help maintain healthy ecosystems, offer us profitable ecotourism opportunities, and fill our lives with intrinsic value. Through our projects around the world, we help communities understand this interconnectedness and empower them to build sustainable livelihoods that benefit from the coexistence with wildlife.

photo_library At three months old, Nania wandered into a village in Burkina Faso and was found without any herd nearby. Local community members raised the funds to provide her with life-saving formula and called on IFAW's elephant experts to create a specialized rehab process for her. Now, a few months later, we've moved Nania to a new enclosure where her long-term rehabilitation will take place. She made the short journey with her sheep friend Whisty, with whom she's forged a strong friendship. Nania's four amazing, committed caretakers will also continue to care for her around the clock at her new home, carefully preparing her for a future in the wild.

photo_library After #HurricaneMaria devastated the island of Dominica in 2017, red-necked amazon parrots, a threatened species known locally as Jacos, were impacted and left in need of rescue. Our disaster response team was invited by the Government of Dominica’s Division of Forestry, Wildlife, and National Parks to join the response efforts on the ground and brought with them specialists in both bird veterinary medicine and wildlife rehabilitation. The team deployed in three separate trips—to support the parrots' rescue, rehabilitation, and release, respectively. Swipe to see footage of the release, which happened in a location where other parrots were present and foraging to ensure the rescued parrots would be on the right track to reuniting with the native population and island habitat.

The exotic pet trade, known for inhumane treatment of animals and often fueled by poaching, is a major threat to big cats—a staggering 10,000 live in captivity outside of accredited zoos and sanctuaries across the United States alone. We helped introduce the Big Cat Public Safety Act, H.R. 1380, which if passed, would help give this leopard and other big cats the protection they need. Let's keep them out of cages and in the wild where they belong. If you live in the US, follow the link in our bio to urge your US representative to support H.R. 1380 and help restrict private ownership of big cats.

play_circle_filled To achieve a world where all animals can truly thrive, we must realize that predators need protection too. These brown hyena cubs, like their spotted and striped cousins, will grow up to play crucial roles in their ecosystems. Despite their misplaced reputation as a nuisance and negative presence, hyenas are important predators and help maintain healthy population levels. By working with local communities to create sustainable solutions that mitigate human-wildlife conflict, we can create a future with space for all animals.

Spread out under the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, Kenya's Amboseli National Park is a wealth of biodiversity. Elephants, giraffes, cheetahs, leopards, and baboons, to name a few, call the park and the surrounding community land home. But the scale of threats in this region like poaching, retaliatory killings, and the trafficking of wildlife and animal parts makes wildlife in this area particularly vulnerable.

In order to protect these animals and the shared community lands, it is essential to engage with local communities. Conservation units form the first line of defense for safeguarding these areas. Though our tenBoma initiative, we work with Maasai communities to create integrated networks that map illegal activity and intercept poaching.

Tigers belong in the wild – not in backyards. Across the US, thousands of privately owned big cats are kept in inhumane conditions, where they suffer from mistreatment and pose a great threat to the public. Today, the number of tigers in backyards and roadside zoos in the US exceeds the population of tigers left in the wild. We’re fighting to change this.
-
We’ve helped introduce the Big Cat Public Safety Act, H.R. 1380 – a bill that would protect both big cats and the public by restricting private ownership of captive exotic cats. If you live in the United States, take action by urging your US representative to support H.R. 1380. Follow the link in our bio and help us end the private ownership of big cats.

play_circle_filled These tiny, cat-like palm civets were hand-raised by our ifaw- @wildlifetrustofindia team back in 2015, after their mother was chased away by members of a local community. When it comes to rehabilitating wildlife, we're careful to do it in a way that minimizes their reliance on humans and sets them up for independence in the wild. In short, we ensure they successfully feed themselves the appropriate wild foods, behave in ways that are socially acceptable to other members of their species, avoid humans, and reproduce. The goal is that animals can continue to thrive in the wild, even after human interference. And through education and outreach, we aim to improve community understanding of why wildlife conservation matters for #peopleandplanet.

photo_library The dogs of Canada's far north endure long, cold winters—though with their new dog houses, they don't seem to mind. The dog houses are built tough with encased insulation, asphalt shingles, and carpet flap doors, because the reality of the situation is most of them spend the long winter months outside. Resources for proper dog care can be hard to come by for isolated northern communities which is why, in addition to providing the materials for dog houses, we work with community members to set up wellness clinics and animal control practices. We also provide outreach and education, aiming to help people set up long-term, healthy practices for their dogs.

The ocean, earth’s largest ecosystem, has sustained human civilization and development for thousands of years, from providing the food we eat to enriching our lives culturally. Today, three billion people depend on it for livelihoods. Unfortunately, threats to the ocean and marine life are numerous and mostly man-made—ranging from pollution to loss of coastal habitats to climate change. Help us celebrate #WorldWildlifeDay by committing to #DoOneThingToday to promote and contribute to the health of #LifeUnderWater:
🔹 Pledge to only consume seafood produced by sustainable fisheries.
🔹 Cut back on your plastic consumption by carrying reusable shopping bags, drinking from reusable water bottles, and saying no to plastic straws.
🔹 Take part in a beach or waterway cleanup.
🔹 Reduce your energy consumption by conserving hot water, biking or walking, and turning off lights in empty rooms.
