"Whoever has seen these giants marching across the last free open spaces of the world knows that this is something that must not be lost." Romain Gary, The Roots of Heaven -
The Global March ATX Mission:
Raise awareness of threats facing species around the world.
Raise funds to support the best conservation organizations working on the front lines to save, protect and secure a future for species.
Influence CITES, governments, lawmakers, representatives and Ambassadors to revise laws to end the ivory, rhino horn and illegal wildlife trade permanently and implement policies that protect wildlife for future generations.
Provide education and tools to enable the Public to come together as one voice to save species from extinction.
The Global March ATX raises funds for such boots-on-the-ground non-profits working on the front lines to save wildlife as: The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, The Black Mamba Anti-Poaching Unit and The Rhino Orphanage. Please visit their websites to learn about their work and threats facing wildlife in Africa. As the Global March ATX gains more sponsors and partners, we will add other successful non-profits to our list for donations and support, more specifically those working directly on-site with local communities living with wildlife. Visit our Toolbox page to learn about the best NGOs in Africa and elsewhere working to strengthen laws to protect wildlife, end poaching, trafficking and demand, educate the public and work with locals to ensure a future for threatened wildlife.
On the Brink
A critical keystone species, the elephant symbolizes how disappearing wildlife can impact entire eco-systems. Called the "Gardeners of Eden", loss of elephants means degradation of the environment and eventually the health of all wildlife in the eco-system. It is our responsibility as stewards of planet earth to not only save species but secure a future for species. The Global March ATX marches for all threatened species. Join with us to learn about rare animals such as the Sumatran rhino now on the brink of extinction. Jane Goodall inspires us with many success stories bringing species back from the brink, "all worth saving." Visit the WPS Endangered Species Portal to learn about critically endangered species.
