Why don't we just focus on sharing our interest in the actual topic of the thread, and sharing our achievements of making changes IN THE CURRENT TOPIC and not other thing we need. Because when last time i checked, the topic was about saving kakapos, and not education, cannibalism and the bible.

So why don't we continue the starting conversation instead of trailing down to every possible unwanted direction?

I would personally be interested what YOU did to make changes and what the areas/towns around provide to save some animals/the environment.

There's a rather sizeable National Park close to where I live - they're trying to recreate some of the old moors they used to have apparently. Also, as far as I've learned, they have wild cats there, but I haven't seen much.

I did help to pull down anti-chew netting during my first few weeks here.

My species of skunk, Spilogale pygmaea or Pygmy spotted skunk, which is endemic of Mexico, has been classified as a vulnerable species due to a 30% decrease in their population during the past three generations in 15 years. This due to the reduction of their habitat by human activity.

I really don't want to see them gone. And I hope something is done soon to save this beautiful species.

Had to log in and leave the shadows once again to say. What the FUCK is wrong with you @Doomer
There have been some users over the years who seem to be here simply because no other community will have them. But by all means, let them continue. They only reinforce what I already suspect.

Out of all the things in this fandom, this is something I didn't expect, to be honest. This community never fails to disappoint.

OwO yes right we have the national park here.

We just got wolves back to Denmark. This is considered a win for conservation. (Although the farmers disagree some..)

Thankfully not for everyone.
We have a handful of people who actually can be counted on, to make some changes.
And the rest... >->
My best advice is to try to provide more, so the lazy/ignorant/egoist/self centered people don't need to take part in donating and making things better.

As long as arrogant, self-centered creation myths are tolerated, they will always be an obstacle to conservation and animal welfare.

Back on topic, does anyone here donate to Eco Defense Group? They are a counter-poaching organization that takes the fight directly to the source.

I hope that they can be saved, too.

Also, I guess as a little bit of a link to conservation here, I did recently see a couple of red kites in my local area. They really are beautiful birds, once the most persecuted in Britain. One of my favourite predatory birds. Kestrels and Sparrowhawks are in the top 3, too (though they aren't endangered).

They introduced them to Yorkshire in around 2002, and a few other sites before that.
The population is now over the 2,000 mark, but they still need some more help for it to get higher.

@Skittles My brethren will hopefully thrive...though you may notice them wearing a lot of leather.

If nobody minds, I will share some bigger UK charities if people want to throw their money at something. I will note, the RSPCA, as far as I know, is more geared towards domestic strays than conservation, but just as valuable. I'll also share FFI as they featured on the Yogscast Jingle Jam a few years back. I would also recommend Ferne Animal Sanctuary as they were the charity for 2019's Furcation.

I don't know if you can donate to them, but I'd recommend also looking-up two reintroduction efforts in the UK: The project to reintroduce the Wild Cat to Scotland, and the project to reintroduce the Pine Marten to Mid-Wales.

Oh, that's similar to Switzerland then.
The wolves are slowly coming back. The same goes for Lynxes.
But plenty of mountain farmers want to shoot the wolves because they don't want to protect their sheep properly. That way more sheep die because they fall down cliffes is of course an ignored fact at these circles...

I think we now have like 70 known wolves here

I see a huge number of red kites here in the south. They're absolutely everywhere. I never used to see them in my childhood.

Same reasons. Farmers don't want their livestock munched. We have 10-20 I think

Suppose both your kid and your dog is drowning, but you can save only one. Who will it be?
I'm not having kids, so obviously the dog. Of course, I might never get a dog either.
