Wildlife Asia is a shining example of how like minded charities can work together to increase their direct and real on the ground contributions to the conservation and welfare of wildlife.

By collaborating with long standing Registered Australian Environmental Organisations such as The Orangutan Project, The Asian Rhino Project, Free the Bears, The Silvery Gibbon Project, International Elephant Project and The International Tiger Project we aim to increase:conservation contribution, capacity and efficiency for wildlife conservation.

Wildlife in Asia is reaching a crisis point. Due to habitat loss and poaching many species have their backs against the wall. This new holistic approach will give the Australian private, philanthropist and business communities the opportunity to contribute to broad reaching support for wildlife in Asia, backed by four of Australia’s premier conservation charities. Already formed by four of the most efficiency conservation charities within Australia, Wildlife Asia will create even more efficiencies through ‘shared services’, to ensure that even more of every dollar raised can go straight to the field.

Wildlife Asia takes a holistic approach to wildlife and habitat protection and seeks to support initiatives in the following areas:

PROTECTION OF HABITAT – illegal logging and human
encroachment are the main causes of loss of habitat for all wildlife.
By working with governments and local communities Wildlife Asia helps
to establish and enforce laws which protect specified
areas of habitat and to educate communities on the importance of
sustainable use of natural resources. This is accomplished through
advocacy and training of enforcement officials.

PROTECTION OF CRITICALLY ENDANGERED WILDLIFE- the illegal trade in wildlife remains a significant threat to so many species and in some cases is increasing at an alarming rate. As the demand for pets and wildlife products increases we must have more intensive approaches to ensuring the safety of these species. Wildlife Asia supports Wildlife protection Units in numerous locations.

DEVELOPMENT OF ALTERNATIVE INCOME OPPORTUNITIES –
Local communities are by necessity a vital component of forest
and wildlife preservation. People living near protected habitat
are only able to refrain from poaching or illegal logging if there
are other methods to provide for their families. Wildlife Asia establishes
small enterprises to support such communities.
Examples include mushroom farming, taxi service,
small scale ecotourism and flower nurseries.

EDUCATION – Children are the future and nowhere is this
more relevant than in the protection of the environment.
Wildlife Asia teaches children and their
families about wildlife conservation, forestry laws and how to
manage and protect the environment. This is accomplished
through mobile learning centres that utilize films, interactive
performances and classroom exercises including the
opportunity to interact with wildlife. Wildlife Asia also provides
training and school supplies to teachers and have established
learning centres at wildlife sanctuaries around the region.
Wildlife Asia and its member organisations not
only run very efficient operations, but also support a model of
conservation which includes all these components.

Organisations wishing to sponsor a Wildlife Asia project                                                    are invited to call Clare Campbell, Director, 0438992325.

Wildlife Asia and its member organisations have already:

•  Funded a community campaign to save the Tripa Swamp
in Aceh which consists of 61,803 hectares and has among
the highest densities of orangutans anywhere in the world.
(The Orangutan Project)

•  Started the Wildlife Projection Units in Sumatra Indonesia to
patrol 250,000 hectares. (The Orangutan Project)

•  Achieved the first successful prosecution against injuring an

•  Released the first pair of ex pet Javan gibbons back into the
wild from the Javan Gibbon Centre. The pair continues to be
monitored and are thriving in the forest. Plans are underway
for more releases later this year.(Silvery Gibbon Project)

•  Provided funding for a rescue, rehabilitation and breeding
program for the critically endangered Klosses gibbon, a world
first for this species. (Silvery Gibbon Project)

•  Worked to protect the only viable population of Javan rhinos in
the world on the island of Java, Indonesia. (Asian Rhino Project)

•  Rescued 806 bears from the dancing bear industry in India
and bile farms in Southeast Asia. (Free the Bears)

•  Provided seed money for more than 500 former dancing bear
