THE FIGHT TO PROTECT OUR FURRY & FEATHERED FRIENDS IS NOT OVER
Protecting and regenerating habitats is also known as ‘re-wilding’. Find out how you can help us re-wild the world and protect our animal friends by fighting against deforestation and the destruction of natural habitats.
WHY WE’RE BUILDING BRIDGES WITH NATURE
We’ve been building bio-bridges all over the world to help protect animals and their natural habitats. ‘Bio-bridges’ are restored wildlife corridors in damaged landscapes that help endangered species to reconnect, breed and thrive again. Our World Bio-Bridges Mission aims to enrich biodiversity around the world by protecting and regenerating 75 million square metres of habitat and building 10 bio-bridges by 2020.
BUILDING BIO BRIDGES IN INDONESIA
In the Batang Toru forest on Sumatra, we’re supporting the establishment of a Forest Management Unit to help protect the southernmost population of critically endangered orangutans and endangered species like the Sumatran Tiger. Here, we work with the Orangutan Land Trust, which help ensure there are safe forest areas set aside for orangutans and the species that accompany them.
BUILDING BIO BRIDGES IN MALAYSIA
Here, we’re working with Wildlife Conservation Society-Malaysia (WCS-MY) to prevent habitat fragmentation, the greatest threat to endangered animals like critically endangered Malayan tigers and endangered Asian elephants. We want to help this critically endangered wildlife roam in the larger protected landscape of Endau Rompin.
BUILDING BIO BRIDGES IN INDIA
With World Land Trust and Wildlife Trust of India, we’re building a bio-bridge to help protect endangered elephants at risk from the destruction of their habitat. The World Land Trust (WLT) protects the world’s most biologically important and threatened habitats. Our relationship dates back many years.
BUILDING BIO BRIDGES IN NEPAL
With Red Panda Network of Nepal, we’re helping protect endangered red pandas in the Himalayas. We’re regenerating the forest by building a bio-bridge and planting more red panda food – including their favourite, bamboo!
