Go Green for St. Patrick’s Day


At Global Wildlife Conservation, we’re not leaving the future of our world’s wildlife to the mere luck of the Irish this St. Patrick’s Day. We hope that you will join us this this week in honoring St. Patrick’s Day by going green and supporting GWC’s priority green habitats—and the wildlife species those habitats harbor.

For the cost of a pint of Guinness ($7), a corned beef and cabbage meal ($15), or a leprechaun costume ($25), you can make a difference for some of the greenest places on Earth and the animals that depend on them, from the African Elephants that roam the expansive Zambezi Valley in Zimbabwe, the climate change-combating Baird’s Tapirs in Nicaragua’s beautiful Indio-Maíz Biological Reserve, to the rare animals that live deep in the forests of Southeast Asia’s Annamite Mountains.

(And if you want to give a pot o’ gold, we won’t think it blarney!)

So go ahead. Make a difference this St. Patrick’s Day:

Zambezi Valley (Zimbabwe)
The world’s second largest elephant population lives in the Zambezi Valley on Zimbabwe’s northern border with Zambia and Mozambique. As poachers threaten to wipe out the elephant population, the Zambezi Elephant Fund, a GWC-supported organization, is bringing together the partners and resources to support the rangers protecting the elephants and the animals’ home. By donating to this project, you’ll be helping to save the world’s largest land mammal.

Indio Maíz (Nicaragua)
Nicaragua’s Indio-Maíz Biological Reserve is home to spectacular biodiversity, including Baird’s Tapir, and to the indigenous Rama and Kriol people. But the illegal, expanding cattle ranching frontier and poaching threaten the reserve. Your donation will help support the reserve’s team of indigenous forest rangers and data managers GWC works with to protect 75 percent of the reserve.

Support the Indio Maíz Biological Reserve today.

Pu Mat National Park (Vietnam)
Species that seem as mythical as leprechauns inhabit Vietnam’s Pu Mat National Park, one of the most important sites for conservation in Vietnam, in particular for the Critically Endangered Saola and Large-antlered Muntjac (captured here on camera trap). Help support our efforts to conduct the first-ever comprehensive camera-trap assessment of species in these green forests, which will inform our targeted and effective anti-poaching strategy.
