International Fund for Animal Welfare
IFAW (the International Fund for Animal Welfare) saves animals in need all around the world. With projects in more than 40 countries, we rescue individual animals, campaign to prevent animal cruelty and advocate for the protection of wildlife and habitats.
Founded in 1969, IFAW has provided almost 50 years of global leadership, innovation and hands-on assistance to animals and communities in need. Our holistic conservation approach includes reducing the demand and exploitation of wildlife at the source; working together with communities and enforcers to shut down poaching networks; pioneering first-ever successes in the rescue, rehabilitation and release of orphan animals back into the wild; activating where needed most in the wake of global disasters; and advocating through expert research and solutions to the greatest threats to our planet’s populations and habitats.
