Stand for Wildlife
  • Take Action

Stand strong for our climate. Sign your name now.

We strongly advocate for nature-based solutions to climate change, such as preserving our intact forests and protecting and restoring coastal ecosystems which are essential for capturing carbon emissions. We know that such solutions are both powerful and cost-effective and will continue to support evidence-based policymaking.

Protecting nature isn’t just the right thing to do—it’s what we have to do to fully address climate change. Pledge to stand with us—and wildlife—for the future of our planet.

Wildlife and wild places are facing pressing global threats
— and your donation will go directly to help combat these issues.

Wildlife Crime

Poaching, trafficking, and illegal trade endanger hundreds of vulnerable species.

Climate Crisis

Changes in climate jeopardize biodiversity and the health of entire ecosystems.

Habitat Destruction

Logging, mining, burning: human encroachment destroys homes and havens for wildlife.

We stand for wildlife

For 125 years, WCS has been dedicated to saving wildlife and wild places, powered by the expertise and science in our zoos, aquarium, and global conservation program.

Our legacy of success now positions us perfectly to take on the world’s most pressing conservation challenges—the zoonotic pandemic crisis, the decline in the world’s biodiversity, and the climate crisis—with urgent and bold action.

We focus on protecting the planet’s most important, ecologically intact places with the greatest biodiversity and resilience to climate change. With your help, we can secure a future worth celebrating.

WCS works to save wildlife and wild places in 60 countries, across the ocean, and in our 4 NY zoos and aquarium
