INSPIRE (tier 2)

AEGEAN MARINE LIFE SANCTUARY (AMLS)

There are believed to be over 4,000 dolphins, porpoises and whales in captivity worldwide. Studies indicate that the public is increasingly concerned about their individual welfare, with the popularity of the captive attractions reportedly in decline. AMLS needs urgent support to realise their goal of becoming the first facility to combine the rescue and care for marine life with a refuge for displaced dolphins from captive attractions.

APE ACTION AFRICA

The future of Cameroon’s gorillas, chimpanzees and other primates are under threat by habitat loss and fragmentation, illegal hunting and the pet trade. Ape Action Africa seeks ongoing support to engage and educate local communities and provide life-long refuge and care for animals, whose lives have been turned upside down.

BARBADOS ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION TRUST

The Barbados Environment Conservation Trust is a Registered Charity established in 2019, who’s vision is via supporting local initiatives aimed at environmental sustainability, Barbados will attain its targets in national development. With a primarily tourist economy, Barbados relies heavily on its environmental resources as part of its tourism product. Boasting some of the world’s best sun, sea and sand, the preservation of marine and terrestrial spaces is a key component for economic productivity.

ANIMAL PROTECTION NETWORK PARTNERS

We also work with like-minded organisations around the world to engage with potential APN members and provide complementary support.

THE CONSERVATION COLLECTIVE

The Conservation Collective is a global network of local environment foundations, rooted in their communities, working to protect the environment, restore nature and safeguard against climate change. Our goal is to bring new channels of support for environmental protection, and to get it into the hands of the people closest to the problems and therefore best suited to provide the solutions.

WORLD CETACEAN ALLIANCE

The World Cetacean Alliance (WCA) is a global network of partners working together to address some of the most pressing issues facing cetaceans and their ocean habitats. For almost a decade, the WCA has endeavoured to benefit and protect whales, dolphins, porpoises and their environments around the world. We believe that real change comes from working in partnership, whether it’s with individuals, communities, organisations, institutions or governments.
