COVID-19 is threatening Africa's wildlife and protected-area funding, and with the emergence of the more dangerous delta variant, this pandemic is tragically far from over. Add your name now to ensure we don't lose these natural wonders!
Social distancing is critical to fighting the pandemic. But it presents unintended — and unavoidable — consequences to lions, elephants, and other threatened species that call one of Africa's 8,400 protected areas home.
Revenue from the safari industry helps fund conservation. As tourism disappears, so does funding protected areas depend on. Sadly, beloved species and those who safeguard them will pay the price.
Add your name today to show support for:
Africa's already-threatened wildlife that relies on protected areas for safe habitat
The health of some of the world's most biodiverse habitats
The people who rely on sustainable nature-tourism for their livelihoods
Take action today to secure their future tomorrow! On behalf of Africa's iconic species, thank you for continued support in this difficult time. AWF will continue fighting for our mission because of you.
