Wildlife Alliance, Inc. Overview
Geographic areas served: Southeast Asia and the Russian Far East
We provide direct protection to forests by training and equipping park rangers to prevent poaching, illegal logging and forest fires; working with communities to establish land demarcation; and engaging in reforestation projects that provide jobs to communities while helping to preserve the forest.
Our Wildlife Rapid Rescue Team rescues animals from poachers, restaurants and markets, and works with the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center where we rehabilitate, care for, and release animals rescued from the illegal trade.
We provide sustainable jobs to rural communities through our community-based agriculture, ecotourism, and reforestation projects to provide incentives to preserve their natural environment.
We work at the national and global levels to advocate for policies that will support long-term conservation efforts.
We work directly with communities and governments to improve forest management and institute good governance to comprehensively address the devastation of ecosystems and combat the illegal wildlife trade.
Our programs in Southeast Asia and the Russian Far East fight forest crime in high biodiversity areas, and actively promote diversified agriculture, community-based ecotourism, and reforestation. We create economic incentives and build political will within communities to preserve the environment.
