Why Give?

With the help of our donors, we've helped protect more than 1.2 million square miles of ocean habitat, we've built more than 1,500 bomas to help communities live peacefully with lions and other big cats, and we've made nearly 12,500 grants to support scientists, explorers, and conservationists in the field. Your support helps us support bold people and transformative ideas to make a difference in the world.


Your donation will:
  1. Help save lions, elephants, and other wildlife by supporting on-the-ground conservation efforts.
  2. Help explore and protect the last wild places in the ocean.
  3. Support research initiatives that are unraveling the mysteries of our past, like the discovery of Homo naledi.
