Other Ways To Help

Context

Documentary film makers often have to accept their limits as far as trying to effect lasting change in a world where news and priorities change based on daily media exposure and cycles. For any related campaign to be effective needs involvement of an NGO with the relevant capacity and experience to carry the message further. Approaches have been made to relevant parties, and we also welcome any indication of interest from anyone reading this, with suggestions for such a partnership. We will be happy to contribute a wide range of imagery, documents and research findings and agree to follow up on any claims as part of a third party independent audit.

Donations?

If you want to make a donation , we can suggest donating to the Elephant Conservation Center (www.elephantconservationcenter.com).  We are working with them on a new documentary involving live elephants trafficking, and we have found them to be a reliable and effective sanctuary and NGO.

What you can do

DO visit national parks that respect and protect wildlife.

DO visit wildlife refuges that rescue, protect and rehabilitate wildlife.

DO educate you children about ecology, the respect of wild animals and the proper environments for them.

DO speak up.  Share this information and your passion for wildlife conservation, sign petitions, write to your government (any level), and ask everyone you know to pledge to do what they can to stop wildlife trafficking.

DO google “What You Can Do for Wildlife”; there are thousands of ways to help.


Wild animals belong in the wild, not in cages or in any sort of captivity.


What you must not do

DO NOT attend shows featuring tigers, elephants or any other performing wild animal. You can stop wildlife exploitation from being profitable.

DO NOT ride elephants. In order to accept to be ridden (or perform any kind of trick, dance or unnatural behavior), baby elephants are subjected to torture.

DO NOT visit zoos nor other places that have wild animal petting operations (lions, tigers or other). Again, you can stop wildlife exploitation and farming from being profitable.

DO NOT buy any products made of or containing any wild animal part (ivory, rhino horn, tiger teeth, tiger wine, skin, pangolin scale, etc.).  You can stop wildlife trafficking from being a profitable enterprise.

DO NOT encourage in any way settings featuring captive wild animal, UNLESS they have a clear rescue or education purpose (obvious and easy to read information about each animal for example, or visit accompanied with a knowledgeable guide). 

DO NOT buy any wild animals nor encourage wild animal breeders.  You may love them, having one may be appealing and young ones are very cute, but acquiring one means it will have to spend its life in a captive setting instead of in the wild where it belong.  Again, you can stop wildlife trafficking from being a profitable enterprise.


This is a new kind of threat which has lead the apes of the world to become a part of the Sixth Extinction scenario, which is man made
