Pledge to Protect Species Threatened by International Trade

A heartbreaking number of animal species are being traded into extinction. The international trade in wildlife and wildlife products is big business, and the illegal trade is on a scale comparable to trafficking in drugs and guns. Defenders staff is currently attending a global gathering of nations in South Africa working to stem the extinction epidemic that threatens so many animal and plant species.

Take our wildlife protection pledge. When you sign, you're affirming your commitment to do what you can – as a consumer and as an advocate to protect the wildlife we all love.
