Stop Wildlife Crime—It's Dead Serious

Wildlife crime—such as poaching—is now the most urgent threat to some of the world's best-loved species, including rhinos and African elephants.

Rhinos are killed every day because of the mistaken belief that their horns cure fevers, blood disorders, cancers, and hangovers. Today, very few rhinos survive outside national parks and reserves. And every year, tens of thousands of elephants are killed by wildlife criminals for their ivory.

WWF is leading a global campaign to stop wildlife crime, but we need your help. Together we can reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth.

Support WWF today and join the fight to protect threatened species and their habitats. Plus, we'll send you a free gift—an exclusive rhino or elephant symbolic adoption kit. Please make a donation today!

If you prefer, make a monthly donation instead.
