How you can help

  3. Report illegal wildlife trade
  4. Raise awareness
  5. Gifts in Wills

1. Buy Responsibly

Wildlife resources are important to everyone because they provide food, medicines, clothing and other products. Over-exploitation is a major threat to many species. Check the ingredients of the products you buy for sustainability quality marks. For example, FSC for timber products, MSC for fisheries products, or FairWild for wild plant products.

Don’t buy trouble! When purchasing souvenirs, make sure you purchase items that are made from legal, sustainable sources. If you are buying exotic pets either locally or having them imported, make sure they are legally supplied. Make sure all the paperwork relating to the animal is traceable. Find out more about how wildlife is used for pets and fashion.
