ambassadors

We are all United for Wildlife. We have bought together some incredible sporting ambassadors from around the world, who share our passion for ending the illegal wildlife trade. Our ambassadors have pledged to help spread our message to their social media followers, and back our call of “enough is enough”.

about us

United for Wildlife was created by The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. Led by the Duke of Cambridge it has brought together the world’s leading wildlife charities under a common purpose; to create a global movement for change. Whilst animals continue to be killed by criminals, whilst whole species are hunted to extinction, we will join together to ask one simple question: Whose side are you on?

“I believe passionately that we have a duty to prevent critically endangered species from being wiped out. If we get together, everywhere, we can preserve these animals so that they share our world with future generations. That’s what United for Wildlife is all about, and why I’m proud to be involved.”

HRH The Duke of Cambridge,
President of United for Wildlife

our partners

The United for Wildlife collaboration comprises seven international conservation organisations convened by The Duke of Cambridge, and is committed to focusing increased attention on the most pressing conservation issues of our time.

With the support of The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, increased attention can be focused on acute conservation problems, from the recent and rapid escalation of the illegal wildlife trade to the challenges of demand reduction.

These issues are having a devastating effect on wild populations of some of the largest and most iconic species: elephants, rhinos and tigers as well as lesser known species such as the pangolin. United for Wildlife is on their side, are you?

the facts

Whole species are being hunted to extinction, as part of an illegal trade that benefits organised criminals and armed gangs. We want you to add your voice to ours and say “enough is enough”.

• The illegal wildlife trade is valued at between $5-20 billion USD per year, it is the fourth most lucrative global crime after drugs, humans and arms.
• It’s not just a crime against wildlife, 1,000 rangers have been killed in the last ten years, which is two per week, every week.
• 95% of the world’s rhinos have been lost in the last 40 years.
• In 2011 between 40,000 and 60,000 pangolins were captured and killed in Vietnam alone.

Will you support us and help preserve these animals or will you do nothing as they vanish from our world forever?

Conservationists

United for Wildlife is nothing without the people on the ground, in the front line of conservation working to preserve our wildlife and to educate and promote the message . We’ve featured just a few of the hundreds of conservationists who are protecting wildlife for us and future generations to enjoy.
