WORLD WILDLIFE RESCUE
We are a global team of diverse wildlife experts - conservationists, zoologists, veterinarians, game rangers, doctors, and other professionals - who have come together to create the world’s first direct rescue and rehabilitation center for trafficked wildlife. WWR is founded by Rochelle James, conservation biologist.
Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate trafficked, endangered, and at-risk wildlife in Africa and worldwide through direct rescue operations from its wildlife rescue hospital and rehabilitation center. Our focus is on rhino and big cats.
We are part of a collective group of six entities working together to fulfil a shared vision - to build sustainable civilisations where wildlife and community can thrive together. See Our Group for more information.
World Wildlife Rescue is a US 501(c)(3) public charity.
WHY OUR WORK IS VITAL
Legal and illegal wildlife trade
is a giant multibillion dollar industry that is driving wildlife toward extinction.
Animals - trafficked much like people, drugs, and guns - are taken directly from the wild, from their families, and smuggled all over the world.
Most do not make the journey and die alone in terrifying conditions.
