Endangered & Near Extinct Animals

You Can Make A Difference By Helping Protect These Endangered Species

Worthy Non-Profit Wildlife Conservation Groups That Save And Help All Sorts of Incredible Animals Many Of Whom Are On The Edge Of Extinction

Yes, this is my website and so I have the luxury of being able to do a little bit more on my part to help raise public awareness and hopefully encourage a few more people to make kind donations to these very worthy endangered animal non-profit charities.

First, I am an animal lover, and so I do try to donate to various wildlife conservation groups and causes that help animals.

Next, I am a nature lover and I am concerned about what HUMANS are doing to Mother Earth! The disrespect of the land, the sea, the air, and the inhabitants of this world, both human and non-human saddens me and makes me mad and frustrates me!

So, to try to make a difference in ways that I am able, I have decided to start a web page devoted to what I believe are very worthy causes that you possibly might not be aware of. I also want to assure you that I have done all I could to check out the way these non-profits allocate the funds, in order that you and I know that if we send a donation, that the money is not being wasted on unnecessary “administrative” costs and such.

To investigate charities that you wish to make donations to, all you have to do is go to a search engine like Google and search for the term “charity ratings” and you will find a listing of organizations that evaluate the financial health of many of the USA’s charities.

For now, I want to bring these organizations to your attention. As time goes on, I will be adding more. Please do not get angry if I have missed your favorite and very worthy charity! Just contact me and let me know what group you wish for me to take a look at and why you feel it should be included on my site. I will take all non-profit endangered animal and wildlife causes into sincere consideration!

Please note I have tried to mention funding groups that also support these causes. I do this to show you these charities and projects are legit! But just because larger groups support them, does NOT mean they still do not need my or your donations.

Alright, here I go. Please note these are in no special order of importance …

Endangered! Only 1700 Mono Titi

These Costa Rican Rain Forest Squirrel Monkeys May Not Make It!

As Property Developers Continue To Move Into The Costa Rican Rain Forest, The Precious Mono Titi Monkey Faces Extinction

Save the Mono Titi monkeys!

The tiny Mono Titi are Squirrel Monkeys that inhabit the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, primarily in the Manuel Antonio and Osa/Corcovado National Parks.

Among the smallest of all primates, weighing in at around one and a half pounds, the Mono Titi is as endearing as any creature in nature. Known as the “peaceful primates”, their social structure is unique in the egalitarian nature of their interactions. Read the whole entry »

This video explains why these little monkeys need our help and why they are so terribly threatened and nearing extinction.

This conservation project is also supported by such notable groups as the Eco Preservation Society, The Phoenix Zoo and Kids Saving the Rainforest.

Elephants Allowed To Retire In Peace

Giving Love & Respect To Abused Female Elephants

A Retirement Haven For Old & Needy Elephants

The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, founded in 1995, is the nation’s largest natural habitat refuge developed specifically for endangered African and Asian elephants. It operates on 2,700 acres in Hohenwald, Tennessee – 85 miles southwest of Nashville. The “Girls” are old, sick (and unfortunately often abused) elephants that have been freed from their captivity in zoos and circuses.

The Elephant Sanctuary exists for two reasons:
To provide a haven for old, sick or needy elephants in a setting of green pastures, old-growth forests, spring-fed ponds and a heated barn for cold winter nights; and To provide education about the crisis facing these social, sensitive, passionately intense, playful, complex, exceedingly intelligent and endangered creatures.

I happened to have the pleasure of meeting Dr. Susan Mikota, DVM, co-founder and Director of Veterinary Programs & Research, and Hank Hammatt, co-founder and Executive Director of Elephant Care Int’l in early 2008, and found out they desperately needed a microscope for their field lab in Nepal.

They are carrying out a TB surveillance program there. As it happened, I had a laboratory quality microscope collecting dust in my attic, and I gladly donated it to them. I am happy to say my microscoope is now being put to excellent and valuable use.

As a matter of fact, I received an email update Aug. 8, 2008 which read:

Hi Claudia,

I took your microscope to Nepal in June. I thought you would like to know your scope has been put to good use – here is a photo of one of our vets – Dr. Jeewan Thapa using the scope in our field lab. Thanks again for your donation! ~~ Susan
