Support Asia’s wildlife today

A gift of any amount will power pioneering projects that enable people and animals to live closer together than ever before across South Asia.

Saving elephants one cup of tea at a time!

Introducing the UK's first Certified Elephant Friendly™ Tea, part of a movement to protect India’s wild elephants and the people living and working alongside them.

The magnificent Herd!

May marked the launch of the biggest environmental campaign of 2021 - CoExistence. The elephants arrived on The Mall at a unique moment in time when a global reduction in human activity was having a positive effect on wildlife. As the Herd makes its way around the globe, it will tell the story of the inspiring ways we can coexist with all the other living beings that make our world magical – from tigers and badgers to nightingales and elephants.

Making space for India’s wildlife

Our Conservation partner, Dr Sanjay Gubbi has expanded protected area cover in the Southern state of Karnataka by an additional 2,385 km of land with support from the government. This is the largest expansion of protected areas in India since the 1970s. There are now 9,000 km of contiguous protected forest in this state and a total of 23 glorious wildlife reserves, which makes it the biggest connected tiger habitat in the country.

The Animal Ball

The Animal Ball is the fashion world’s celebration of the natural world. It raises millions for vital habitat conservation projects across Asia. Hosted by Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort, this prestigious event brings together the world's leading fashion houses to collaborate and dress a bestiary of beautiful creatures in bespoke couture headgear.

7 more elephant corridors

The very first elephant corridor we secured in Wayanad, Kerala, has been studied with data proving how much conflict it managed to reduce. This led to the regional government committing funds to securing the remaining 7 corridors in the State. What a conservation win!

Travels to my Elephant

The ultimate race for conservation returns in 2022! It will see teams of supporters drive hundreds of miles in convey across India in multi-coloured tuk-tuks. Business tycoons, socialites, distinguished environmentalists, old India hands and green cheerleaders visit leading conservationists along the way and raise astonishing sums to support them.

No room for complacency as we face a triple planetary crisis

We are in the middle of a triple planetary crisis. Climate disruption. Nature and biodiversity loss. Pollution and waste. This triple crisis is threatening the well-being and survival of millions of people, animals and biodiversity around the world.

You can cut a tree down, and it grows back. Once a species goes, it's gone forever.
