Protecting Tigers in Thailand
 
Over 95% of the world's wild tigers have been lost in the last 100 years and with as few as 3,500 remaining it is vital that we act now to protect them and their vital forest habitats. Thailand is home to a significant population of c.200 tigers. Working across five national parks, our primary aim is to build anti-poaching capacity among park rangers and to break the poaching cycle by engaging with local communities and children of poachers to change attitudes towards tigers and wildlife. project reportread updates from the field
Snow Leopards of Mongolia
 
Found across 12 countries in the mountainous regions of central Asia, only c.5,000 snow leopards now survive in the wild. Threatened by poachers and human activity, these elusive cats are coming into conflict with herders and losing their habitat to mining. To counter the threats, we work with local communities to support alternative livelihood and conservation bonus schemes, run conservation education programmes, campaign to create protected areas and fund research into the habits of the cats.
Helping to save Zimbabwe's Painted Dogs
 
The painted dog is one of Africa's most endangered animals and one of its least understood. It lives in complex social groups with family very much at its heart. As well as monitoring the dogs we support rescue and rehabilitation for injured animals and work with local communities to change their perceptions. Each year hundreds of young Africans attend the DSWF funded residential bush camp to learn more about the dogs, spreading a wider acceptance and understanding throughout their communities.
