My friends know me. I love and protect animals fanatically. I live in Miami where I joined the Zoological Wildlife Foundation almost two years ago. I have heard about them in the news and after visiting them and getting some more detailed information about them I had no other choice than joining them. 🙂
What is the Zoological Wildlife Foundation?
They believe in prevention. We all know that nowadays lots of species are in danger because of the terrible animal killing tours or simply by minimizing their wildlife territory as huge industrial companies are exterminating the forests and their living environment around them.
According to Miami.about.com – Zoological Wildlife Foundation is an international organization with active and supporting members and activists. Their aim is to monitor the global situation of the known endangered species and to prepare a prevention program with the members.
Financials are almost as important as their activity itself. Of course the activists are working for free but there are cases where funds are needed to transfer medicines, professional staff and other necessary things for their on-site activities. For this reason Zoological Wildlife Foundation operates a Donation Program where anybody can participate in the prevention and wildlife saving programs.
You can either virtually adopt an animal or as an activist travel to the site where any help is more than needed. The activists are sometimes facing hard hours during their job as the corruption is very high in those countries where the Zoological Wildlife Foundation is active. This means that there are continuous ‘fights’ with the corrupt authorities, police or other military units.
A day with Zoological Wildlife Foundation
The privately or unfortunately sometimes centrally organized tours where you can legally kill any endangered animal are common in Africa or the Far East Regions. First of all we all have to collect the information how can we protect are activity and first of all our activists against these corrupt systems and try to find the best and easiest way to smoothly working together with the relevant governments.
After comes the hard job. Organizing the trips on site, traveling through difficult areas and organizing the jobs of the onsite activists. In every country there is an expert team that will manage the works and the protection activity itself. In many cases the Zoological Wildlife Foundation is working closely together with other organization in order to reach the best available result with the animals to be protected.
It is a very attractive job. You have to be enthusiast but it naturally comes with the time. All activists become fanatics as this is a very hard but also very inspirational work. I know that lots of people believe that they fight alone against the whole word. This is simply not true. This is a very huge Family! We all believe and know that one day we are going to win this fight.
