“The window of opportunity to prevent the extinction of many iconic species is closing. If we are to preserve elephants, rhinoceroses, and tigers for future generations, we need to act now before it is too late. The Swedish Postcode Foundation is committed to supporting actions to conserve wildlife and we believe the work by the Wildlife Justice Commission constitutes a very important part in the chain to stop poaching and illegal trade.”
It takes courage
Every day, the Wildlife Justice Commission’s teams conduct intelligence-led, undercover investigations and provide reliable, actionable evidence to support governments and national law enforcement agencies in their fight against wildlife crime.
But we cannot achieve results by ourselves. The support of our partners and supporters is essential to stop this multi-billion-dollar illicit business that’s decimating already endangered species that are entitled to protection and putting global health and security at risk.
Our funding comes primarily from the generous contributions of lotteries, foundations and individuals.
It takes courage to do what we do, and it takes courage to fund us. Without your support, our mission to disrupt and help dismantle organised criminal networks will not be possible. Join our courageous partners and individual supporters and help us stop transnational organised wildlife crime!
Thank you to all donors and partners who have made our work possible since 2015!
We are particularly indebted to the Nationale Postcode Loterij of the Netherlands for continuously supporting our work by granting the Wildlife Justice Commission permanent beneficiary status as of 2019, with a yearly grant of EUR 500,000 for five years in addition to the three-year, EUR 2.5m grant that we received from them in 2017. This funding allows much needed flexibility to our operations and has enabled us to increase capacity and cover the cost of longer term investigations. It also provides a strong, clear signal of the Nationale Postcode Loterij’s confidence in our team, our effectiveness and the urgent need for our work to continue.
We are also extremely grateful to individual donors for their commitment as well as to other organisations and businesses that contribute to our work with pro-bono assistance and in-kind donations. Their support provides an extremely valuable contribution to achieving our mission.
