Thank you for supporting David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation through GlobalGiving.

Over the past six months, DSWF have continued to work alongside our ground-based conservation partners in Asia to provide vital support to the continents endangered Amur and Bengal tiger populations.

In India, DSWF have continued to two K9 units in the Assam region which provide critical support to law enforcement efforts.

  • Babli (the dog) and Goura (the handler) have been operating in the Orang National Park which covers 78km² of prime tiger habitat. Babli has given some vital clues to forest officials on stolen camera traps alongside two illegal killings of wild boar.
  • Jubi (the dog) and Sanatan Mali (the handler) have been stationed in the Baguri Range of Kaziranga.

Combined, the two dog units have patrolled 540km of prime tiger habitat. Alongside the K9 units, DSWF have supported field agents to continue their visits to field sites in order to gather information and monitor the movement of suspects involved in wildlife crime. Nine reports have been shared with enforcement agencies leading to eight arrests of individuals involved in wildlife crime.

DSWF have also continued our long-term support of an education and youth engagement programme which promotes coexistence between humans and tigers. During the reporting period, 13 workshops were held reaching over 380 children.

In Russia, DSWF have been working with our ground-based conservation partners in the Primorsky and Khabarovsky Krais to protect a key tiger landscape which covers 22,387 km² (13.8% of the entire tiger population).

By utilising technology and reporting tools, DSWF funding has helped increase the volume and quality of anti-poaching patrols in the region. Over the past six months, our partners have conducted 9,450km of patrols to enhance the level of risk to poachers operating in the area. DSWF have also funded a far-reaching education programme to inspire children and adults to protect nature and instil a sense of pride. During the reporting period, 1,466 children were engaged. alongside 5,000 community members.

The Bigger Picture

Over the past 12 months, DSWF have continued our 37-year legacy of providing unwavering support to protect some of the world’s most endangered species. Over the course of 2022 we will continue to support our long-term conservation partners to protect wildlife, tackle wildlife crime and reduce poaching threats alongside engaging and supporting more community groups working to protect wildlife.

Thanks to your help, we have granted over £11 million in direct conservation support to turn the tide on extinction.

On behalf of everyone at DSWF and the wildlife we fight to protect, Thank You.
