We move the world to protect wild animals – and keep them in the wild


From the jungle to the oceans, wild animals face ongoing threats of cruelty and abuse. Bears are captured and forced to fight dogs. Marine mammals, such as whales and dolphins, forced to perform in cruel entertainment venues. Wild animals are traded as exotic pets or unproven medicine. But long-lasting, genuine change is possible, so we move governments and communities worldwide to protect these wild animals – and by supporting our campaigns, you can help to keep wild animals safe and wild.

We move the world to protect the 70 billion animals farmed each year

Food systems

The treatment of farm animals is the world’s biggest animal welfare issue – and it’s getting bigger. By 2050, livestock production will be twice what it was in 2000. Right now, more than 70 billion animals are farmed for food each year – two-thirds in conditions that mean they can’t move freely or live naturally. We campaign to end this cruelty. For animals, people and the planet, factory farming must stop.
