The AWF was founded with a generous legacy from Colleen Macleod to improve the welfare of all animals through veterinary science, education and debate. It was set up by vets who, concerned about a whole raft of issues concerning animal welfare, had a vision of how they could alleviate unnecessary pain and suffering in all animals including farm animals, wild animals and pets. Our aim is for all animals to have good physical health and mental wellbeing.
To conserve bats we need to establish the size of current bat populations, working out which bats are where and how they are responding to the threats and pressures they face. BCT’s network of volunteers and the general public monitor bats for national and international programmes. By monitoring them we can discover the factors that are important for their survival. We can identfiy which species need action now, what areas are important for bats and what threats bats face. Ultimately our monitoring programmes give us, and governments, the information needed to make bat conservation a success.
From small beginnings, the Born Free Foundation has grown into a global force for wildlife. But a personal passion for wild animals and desire for positive change remain at our heart. Described by The Times as ‘Big enough to make a difference, but small enough to care,’ Born Free is not a big anonymous organisation, but a group of people who share the same goals and dreams for our natural wildlife.. Our work to prevent individual animal suffering, protect threatened species and keep wildlife in the wild sets us apart from the rest.
Our field staff operate 50 projects in 18 countries around the world. We focus on islands, where unique species are under immense pressure, and on animal groups suffering the worst declines, such as primates and amphibians.
Our field programmes are based primarily in the most imperilled island ecosystems in the world. One-third of the organisation’s total staff are based overseas where they work closely with local authorities and NGO partners.
Always led by the need to restore species, our approaches vary in scale and response to suit the situation on the ground. In many cases, our involvement with a particular species has developed into a series of projects aimed at improving the underlying threats facing that species and its habitats.

Creating sustainable solutions for animals in need Touching hearts, changing consumer behaviour Driving legal changes We aim to realise these goals through our projects and campaigns, which provide short-term and long-term solutions for animals in need.
Our campaigns are aimed at creating better living conditions for farm animals, wild animals, laboratory animals and pets in general.. As more and more decisions about animal welfare are made at a European level, we focus our efforts increasingly on European policy makers in order to influence their beliefs, in favor of animals.
HART Wildlife Rescue is a registered charity which runs a wildlife hospital in North East Hampshire, providing a rescue, treatment and rehabilitation service for wildlife from all over Hampshire and surrounding counties. HART also gives advice to vets, the RSPCA and members of the public from all over the country, as well as providing talks and work experience opportunities for students. HART is run entirely on donations. There is no doubt that without HART’s help, many injured, sick or abandoned wild animals would suffer long and painful deaths, or would be put to sleep unnecessarily. Happily, over half make a full recovery and so can be returned to the wild.
We were started by a group of people who felt strongly that cruelty inflicted in the name of sport was barbaric and upsetting, and who wanted to be a force for change. If you feel that animals should not be used as targets, or objects to be chased or used as commodities for entertainment, then you are a supporter of the League already. We need your voice to add to the call to change, and together we can help protect animals used and abused in the name of sport.

Writing an e-mail only takes a few minutes but can send a powerful animal rights message to decision-makers. So please spare a moment for animals and take action today! You’ll be joining thousands of others who believe that animals deserve to be treated with respect as ouselves The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Foundation is a UK-based charity dedicated to establishing and protecting the rights of all animals. Like us humans, animals are capable of suffering and want to lead their own lives; therefore, they are not ours to use – for food, clothing, entertainment, experimentation or any other reason.
PETA and our affiliates around the world educate policymakers and the public about cruelty to animals and promote an understanding of the right of all animals to be treated with respect. PETA works through public education, research, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement and protest campaigns. PETA believes in non-violence and does not advocate or support actions in which anyone, human or non-human, is harmed. PETA is a charitable organisation that works to educate the public about the horrors of cruelty to animals through peaceful means.
