Andean Bear Conservation
Andean bears are the only surviving species of bear native to South America, and the last remaining of the short-faced bears in the world.
The current giraffe population is estimated to be fewer than 120,000 animals. Poaching, habitat loss and disease continue to threaten giraffe populations across Africa.
The biggest threat to Grauer's gorillas (a type of mountain gorilla) comes from armed conflict near the forests they call home.
Lion and Cheetah Conservation
Lion and cheetah populations have decreased by more than 40% in just the last 20 years due to loss of habitat and prey as well as conflict with humans.
Asian Turtle Conservation
Nearly 1/3 of all freshwater turtle and tortoise species are found in Asia and are threatened by unsustainable trade for sale in food markets and traditional medicine.
Illegal Wildlife Trade
A multi-billion dollar criminal industry, illegal wildlife trade is one of the top threats to wildlife globally, from elephants to rhinos, tigers, turtles and more.
