Our generation is lucky to live in a world with elephants, lions, gorillas, and countless other species. They need our help for a bright future, which is why We’ve decided to participate in the WCS Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo on April 30.
We care about saving animal habitat and endangered species, and I hope you do, too. The money we raise will help fund WCS’s critical work to save habitats and species around the globe.
Today, animals are going extinct 10,000 times faster than ever before. African elephant populations have plummeted due to poaching to feed the ivory trade, and recent news from the field has often been bleak. Lion populations in Uganda have declined by 30% in ten years. War, hunting, and habitat loss have had a severe impact on gorilla populations.
This news is devastating to but WCS is working to give wildlife a fighting chance. The organization recently launched a plan to conserve the world’s largest wild places in 15 priority regions. Together, those are home to more than 50% of the world’s biodiversity!
We want to help, which is why we're running in the WCS Run for the Wild. We will complete the 5k run remotely, in Victoria BC, while supporting WCS in establishing and helping to manage parks and reserves, safeguarding animals from poaching with active monitoring and patrolling, and inspiring communities to protect their local wildlife.
WCS has the reach and the expertise to make a difference, but the organization needs our help to make that that protection a reality.
Thank you for your support.
