Mission

Empowering veterans to aid in the prevention of wildlife crime.

Our Objectives

Veterans for Wildlife is an international charity committed to the protection of wildlife and the world’s critically endangered species. By deploying highly-skilled and experienced former service personnel, Veterans for Wildlife aims to play a key role in conservation and the prevention of wildlife crime. 

As a people-focused organisation, Veterans for Wildlife has two primary objectives: 

  • Supporting conservation entities and rangers at the grass roots level.
  • The empowerment and development of military veterans. 

By facilitating critical capacity-building programmes, Veterans for Wildlife aims to develop the skill-set and operational effectiveness of anti-poaching rangers. These programmes offer a unique opportunity to veterans, transitioning into civilian life, to continue to make a positive impact on society.
