As the world’s leading animal welfare organisation, IFAW works from its global headquarters in the United States and 15 country offices to improve the welfare of wild and domestic animals by reducing the commercial exploitation of animals, protecting wildlife habitats, and assisting animals in distress.

With projects in more than 40 countries, IFAW works both on the ground and in the halls of government to safeguard wild and domestic animals and seeks to motivate the public to prevent cruelty to animals and to promote animal welfare and conservation policies that advance the well-being of both animals and people.

Via its southern Africa office IFAW supports research aimed at understanding the dynamics of elephant populations in southern Africa, as well as supporting grass roots projects which uplift the health and well being of companion animals in some of South Africa’s poorest townships.
