Veterans for Wildlife

Why does the Veterans' Foundation support Veterans for Wildlife?

An international charity, Veterans for Wildlife has a commitment to the protection of wildlife and the critically endangered species of the world.

The skills former service personnel possess make them ideal candidates in the charity’s on-going battle with wildlife crime.

Projects that Veterans for Wildlife operate allow ex-service personnel to use the skills taught during service to support a cause that saves the lives of animals and protect species for future generations.

This helps individuals on a number of levels. One, it boosts confidence and provides a fabulous life experience. Two, it gives them the chance to develop and grow their own support network. And three, it provides an enormous sense of pride in knowing how crucial the individual’s role is in safeguarding the world’s endangered wildlife.

Veterans for Wildlife has a specific project - Footprint of Hope – that helps those suffering with mental health issues as a result of serving.

A variety of methods, including animal-assisted therapy, teach veterans how to deal with the negative emotions that blight their lives.
