Save the Elephants, Lions and Pangolins
With David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation
Elephants, pangolins, and lions are three African species that are currently facing significant threats to their populations. Elephants are particularly vulnerable due to poaching for their ivory tusks, as well as habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict. African elephant populations have declined by around 30% over the past decade, and it is estimated that approximately 415,000 elephants remain in the wild.
Similarly, pangolins are under threat from poaching for their scales, which are used in traditional medicine, as well as habitat loss and trafficking for the pet trade. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), all eight species of pangolin are threatened with extinction, with some populations declining by up to 80% over the past decade.
Lions are also under threat from habitat loss, poaching, and human-wildlife conflict. According to the African Wildlife Foundation, African lion populations have declined by approximately 43% over the past two decades, and it is estimated that there are now fewer than 20,000 lions remaining in the wild.
It is important to help these species because they play a crucial role in maintaining the ecological balance of their habitats, and their decline could have far-reaching effects on other wildlife and the environment as a whole. Furthermore, these species are important cultural and economic assets for many African communities, and their decline could have significant impacts on local livelihoods and economies. By supporting charitable work to protect these species, we can help to promote sustainable conservation efforts and protect these animals for future generations.

The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation is a UK-based charity that works to protect endangered wildlife and their habitats around the world. They support a range of conservation projects, from anti-poaching efforts to habitat restoration and community engagement initiatives. The charity focuses on protecting species that are under threat, including elephants, pangolins, lions, and many others.
The work of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation is important because many species around the world are facing significant threats to their survival, including habitat loss, poaching, and climate change. By supporting conservation efforts and working with local communities, the foundation is helping to protect and preserve these species for future generations. Their work is also crucial for maintaining the ecological balance of many habitats and protecting the biodiversity of our planet. Additionally, the foundation helps to raise awareness about conservation issues and encourages individuals and organisations to take action to protect wildlife and the environment.
