About the Charity
For The Animals is an Australian conservation charity dedicated to protecting endangered wildlife in Southeast Asia. In Cambodia, they work closely with Wildlife Alliance, the leading anti-trafficking organisation in Asia, (according to the peak body, TRAFFIC.) Wildlife Alliance has been responsible for rescuing over 60,000 animals from poachers, traffickers and the illegal pet trade since 2001.
For the Animals was founded in 2011 by a former Wildlife Alliance employee. Since then, For The Animals has hosted trips to Cambodia so that donors could get a firsthand look at their work.
The partnership with Asia Escape Holidays enables For the Animals to reach many more potential supporters through this once in a lifetime experience.
Currently, For the Animals’ funding is allocated across the following programs: 50% Community anti-poaching patrols, 30% Care for injured or orphaned wildlife & 20% Release of rehabilitated animals.
