Organisations that we support.
The Wolf Conservation Center teaches people about wolves, their relationship to the environment and the human role in protecting their future.
Founded by Hélène Grimaud in 1999, the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit environmental education organization working to protect and preserve wolves in North America through science-based education, advocacy, and participation in the federal recovery and release programs for two critically endangered wolf species – the Mexican gray wolf and red wolf. The WCC’s three ‘ambassador wolves’ reside on exhibit where they help teach the public about wolves and their vital role in the environment. Through wolves, the WCC teaches the broader message of conservation, ecological balance, and personal responsibility for improved human stewardship of our World.
The Bruno Manser Fund (BMF), Association for the Peoples of the Rainforest, is a non-profit association based in Basel (Switzerland). It was set up in 1991 by the environmental activist Bruno Manser. Strategic responsibility is in the hands of a board with six members, while operational activities are handled by the executive director and a team of employees and volunteers. The Bruno Manser Fund stands for fairness in the tropical forest. We are committed to campaigning for the conservation of the threatened tropical rainforests with their biodiversity and strive for the respect of the rights of the rainforest dwellers.
In consideration of the fact that the founder and long-standing chair, Bruno Manser, spent many years living with the Penan in the Malaysian federal state of Sarawak on Borneo, we are primarily committed to working for this people and for the protection of the Sarawak forests.
Our activities are comprised of projects and campaigns in Malaysia and Switzerland. The Bruno Manser Fund’s strategic objectives are :
- Respect of all human rights, especially those of the indigenous peoples
- Conservation of the forests, including their biodiversity
- Support for alternative development options and alternative income
- Support for the Penan by providing them with assistance in the fields of health, education and infrastructure
- Combatting corruption and commitment for transparent governance
Documenting indigenous cultures of Malaysia, especially of the Penan
- Raising awareness as regards tropical-forest destruction and the rights of indigenous peoples
Guardians of all Voiceless Animals and Children (GOAV) is a non-profit organization that rescues street animals to provide them with shelter and better life. We act as the facilitators who look for compassionate guardians to match with these needy lives. We rely on donor funding and human resources to improve the lives of helpless animals.
Our mission is to rescue and treat the un-owned street animals of Udaipur who have become ill or injured, and through their rescue inspire a community to protect and defend the lives of all animals. We believe all animals deserve our compassion and protection. We are working for the day when all animals’ lives are respected for their inherent value, whether dogs, chickens, cows or fish. Rescue is our strategy to immediately relieve suffering and encourage the protection of all animals lives by sharing their incredible stories of recovery and healing.
Fondée en France en octobre 1997, Tchendukua – Ici et Ailleurs, association loi de 1901, réunit celles et ceux qui souhaitent contribuer à la restitution de terres ancestrales au profit des peuples de la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta dans le nord de la Colombie, particulièrement les Kogis et les Wiwas, appuyer la regénération de la biodiversité, et engager un dialogue créatif avec eux.
Nous accompagnons les sociétés racines dans la récupération de leurs terres ancestrales, la reconstitution de la biodiversité, la transmission de leurs savoirs ancestraux aux jeunes générations. Pour qu’ils retrouvent leur autonomie et inventent un futur qui leur soit propre.
Cette rencontre nous permet de faire de l’altérité une richesse par l’interrogation de nos pratiques et de nos représentations, l’inspiration, pour remettre le vivant au cœur de nos actions, l’invention d’un nouveau dialogue vers l’harmonie et l’équilibre. Pour féconder les sociétés modernes par les sagesses ancestrales, au service de la Vie.
The Orangutan Project was established in 1998 by founder and world-renowned orangutan expert, Leif Cocks, as a result of his 25+ year career working with orangutans – including establishing the most successful breeding colony of orangutans in the world. The Orangutan Project was formed with a key mission; to ensure that endangered wild orangutan species would be protected against extinction, and would continue to live in secure populations for generations to come. Today, The Orangutan Project is a not-for-profit organisation that supports a wide range of critical projects that address the holistic problem facing remaining fragmented orangutan populations – including fighting deforestation and habitat loss at the highest level. The projects funded by The Orangutan Project includes direct orangutan conservation, and rescue, rehabilitation and release programs, forest habitat protection and regeneration, education, research and local community partnerships. Projects operating on the ground today in Borneo and Sumatra.
