As a UK based charity operating in Greece since 1959, GAWF's purpose is the prevention and relief of cruelty and suffering amongst animals in Greece. We are proud of what we have achieved over 60 years as the longest serving animal charity operating in Greece at a national level, but there is still a long way to go in encouraging changes in attitudes at every level of Greek society.
The Anglican Society for the Welfare of Animals was formed in 1970 by a group of clergy and lay Christians who felt very strongly that the Church did not speak out on the subject of animal cruelty and suffering. Our mission is therefore to ‘put animals on the agenda of the Christian church’.
Gifts in Wills to Essex Wildlife Trust enables the charity to continue the excellent work it undertakes for both Essex wildlife and Essex people. We manage and protect over 8,700 acres of land on 87 nature reserves and 2 nature parks and run 11 visitor centres. Over the years, we have created and restored spectacular saltmarsh and freshwater wetlands for wildfowl and waders. As well as reconnecting wildlife habitats and made them more resilient.
The Friends of Animals League (FOAL) is based at Foal Farm Animal Rescue Centre in Kent. The Charity was founded in 1960 and since then has cared for tens of thousands of needy animals. Foal Farm employs 32 permanent staff and has many dedicated and loyal volunteers. Over a thousand cats, dogs, rabbits and smaller pets are found new loving homes each year. Permanent sanctuary is given to farm animals, horses and a variety of birds.
The Hawk Conservancy Trust is a conservation charity and award-winning visitor centre that has worked in the fields of conservation, education, rehabilitation and the research of birds of prey for over 55 years. Our mission is the conservation of birds of prey. Projects related to this mission operate on site, in southern England and overseas, where we are working to conserve critically endangered birds.
At International Animal Rescue we do exactly what our name says - we save animals from suffering around the world and protect their precious habitats. Our work includes rescuing and rehabilitating orangutans that have been kept as pets or left stranded after their forest home has been destroyed. Our teams in Indonesia also rescue slow lorises and macaque monkeys from the illegal pet trade.
When we rescue one animal – a house pet abandoned in a hurricane, a milk cow displaced by an earthquake, a right whale entangled in fishing line – we’re doing much more than saving a life. We’re reuniting a family. We’re restoring a community’s livelihood. We’re saving a species on the brink of extinction. And we’re saving our planet.
Founded in 1928 by Dorothy and Pog Yglesias, the hospital depends entirely on legacies, donations and yearly subscriptions to Hospital Membership. Caring for both land and sea birds, its aim is always to release, but it provides permanent sanctuary in cases where this is impossible. If we cannot release an injured bird or meet its ongoing particular needs we endeavour to find the most suitable long term home for it with other centres or individuals already vetted for their suitability and excellence.
Fred, the inspiration for our logo, chained to a 12-inch perch for 19 years! Imagine his suffering. New Life Parrot Rescue & Helpline Service, founded in 1995, offers a specialised and unique service. Our fundamental aim is to take in unwanted, neglected, traumatised and abused companion psittacines. Our objective is to care for each of them and, where necessary, restore them to good health.
We share our home with some of the most remarkable wildlife on the planet. Our local nature inspires, humbles, and educates us, creating treasured memories. It is vibrant, breathtaking and unmistakably ours. At the RSPB, we know that these experiences connect and unite us, and it is only by working together that we can ensure our wildlife thrives, far into the future.
