Love Wildlife Foundation

Love Wildlife is a non-profit foundation registered in the country of Thailand. We work hard at educating the younger generations about the importance of wildlife and their connection to the world we all live in.

Story

Love Wildlife Foundation was founded by Nancy Lynn Gibson in 2009. Following internships at Dusit Zoo and Chiang Mai Zoo, Nancy became aware of the lack of educational material on animal welfare in Thailand and beyond. Love Wildlife envisions itself as a leader of wildlife conservation and education in Thailand. We strive to play an important role in the community through educating zoos, schools and other organizations on wildlife issues. We envision a society that loves and respects animals, showing compassion to the way animals live and feel. Love Wildlife works to optimize the quality of life of captive wild animals by improving their living, as well as striving to keep wild born animals free in their natural homes through various projects. We inspire people at a young age to understand that animals are living beings that love, feel and deserve a happy life. When students can relate themselves to wildlife, they acquire a better understanding of animals’ needs, growing up to be responsible citizens, pet owners, consumers and leaders. We support students in their learning process and provide them with opportunities to express their ideas to the general public through student-inspired campaigns and products. Scholarships are available per funding to Thai students majoring in a field related to the environment, conservation and animal care, to promote more professionals working towards protecting wildlife. We believe that working with other groups and organizations (public, private and governmental) maximizes the effort and further spreads awareness to protect wildlife and the ecosystem.

Message from the founder

“Hi, I am Nancy, the founder of Love Wildlife. Growing up in America, I was surrounded by animals and nature, not realizing it would be my calling and future career. Now, living in Thailand, I am involved with many great projects and work with inspiring people throughout Southeast Asia to make change for the environment. We have many projects planned and it is exciting to know that Love Wildlife will be a supporting organization for wildlife conservation throughout the region.”

Challenges

Thailand has a large amount of plant and animal diversity due to its geographic location. Additionally, Thailand is home to over 200 protected national parks and wildlife sanctuaries. However, as the population continues to rise at a rapid rate, not to mention its booming tourist industry, its endemic species of flora and fauna suffer the consequences. Lack of information and knowledge have led to unsustainable planning measures and activities placing the countries wildlife and environment under threat.

The objectives of Love Wildlife are,

  1. Conservation Through Education
  2. Conservation of the slow loris and other threatened or endangered species in Thailand.
  3. Cooperate and collaborate with other NGOs and agencies for the protection and wellbeing of wildlife.
