The International Fund for Animal Welfare is one of GreaterGood’s charitable partners involved in all aspects of animal rescue. They are leading the fight to protect the wild tigers of the world…and helping when these amazing animals are found in private zoos.
In 2006, IFAW established two national parks in Russia’s Primorye district –a protected habitat for tigers. They’ve also done similar work in India, home to the largest remaining wild tiger population in the world. With their help, tigers have returned the Sariska Tiger Reserve, a place where all the wild tigers had been killed by poachers.
Today, IFAW is working with the Indian government to establish habitat corridors connecting fragmented tiger populations, thereby reducing conflict between humans and tigers.
In India and Russia, they rescue wild tiger cubs found injured or orphaned by poachers and rehabilitate them with the goal of returning them to life in the wild.
In the United States, they’ve worked to rescue tigers kept captive in unsafe conditions by private owners. Although these animals cannot be safely released into the wild, IFAW makes sure that they are taken to proper sanctuaries where they will live out their days with room to roam and proper diets.
They also continue to work with federal and state authorities as well as lovers of big cats to educate the public on the need for stricter regulations governing the ownership and breeding of tigers:

Help Feed 13 Students in Haiti for 1 Month: Completed February 21, 2017
65,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!
In 2010 a terrible earthquake rocked the nation of Haiti; 220,000 people were killed and more than 300,000 people were injured. Many children lost their parents in the disaster and have to live in temporary homes that are overcrowded and understaffed. Many of these children do not have secure access to food and have to rely on their schools to receive the only meals they get for the week. You can help.

Support 8 Heroes and Their Pets for 2 Months: Completed February 10, 2017
40,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!
Veterans at all stages of their military careers struggle with emotional and physical issues, including those that challenge their ability to fully integrate into civilian life. For these and many other circumstances, a companion pet is often the right prescription to help heal mind, body, and soul. Pets for Patriots helps these veterans find and afford a “last-chance” pet: adult and special needs animals, and large breed dogs – those most overlooked for adoption, who face the greatest risk of euthanasia and yet make wonderful and grateful companions. You can help. Just $25 provides pet food/basics for a veteran’s adopted pet for two months.
Help Prevent the Extinction of the Magnificent Cheetah: Completed February 8, 2017

A new study has revealed that only 7,100 cheetahs remain in the wild. While reclassification of cheetahs from “threatened” to “endangered” on the IUCN endangered species list is one step, a whole new approach to conservation is necessary. With your help, we can ensure the population does not go extinct entirely.
