IFAW is one of the world's leading international animal welfare and conservation organisations.
Founded in 1969, IFAW today has representation in 16 countries and works in more than 40. IFAW campaigns to improve the welfare of wild and domestic animals by reducing commercial exploitation of animals, protecting wildlife habitats and assisting animals in distress. IFAW seeks to motivate the public to prevent cruelty to animals and to promote animal welfare and conservation policies that advance the well-being of both animals and people.
We are joined in this important work over one million supporters worldwide, including some 400,000 here in the UK. This broad base of support makes it possible for IFAW to engage communities, government leaders, and like-minded organisations around the world and achieve lasting solutions to pressing animal welfare and conservation challenges - solutions that benefit both animals and people. Over the years, our approach has been as varied as the species we protect.
