Our vision: a world where wildlife can live free from human threat in their natural habitat.
Covid 19 Update
Thank you for your interest in being a part of the Veterans for Wildlife community. Due to the coronavirus pandemic we paused our operations for the year 2020 and have re-launched in 2021.
If you’d like to be notified of our upcoming projects and volunteer opportunities, please join our mailing list and apply on our volunteer page.
We leverage the skillsets held by the veteran community to build strategy and capacity with our conservation partners in order to protect wildlife.
About Veterans For Wildlife
Veterans For Wildlife is an international charity dedicated to ending the global illegal wildlife trade. We work in partnership with governments and NGOs to empower Rangers and local communities to conserve nature.
Our core focus is to build the capacity of anti-poaching units who work on the frontline of conservation, through training and longterm mentoring programmes.
Veterans For Wildlife was founded in 2016 by former British military veterans with a passion for wildlife. Our volunteers and staff consist of people with a range of life experiences from previous service in the armed forces, law enforcement, medical professions, border control and anti-poaching organisations from across the world.
