For the Love of Wildlife is about restoring the essential connection between all living things to bring our planet into balance.

Patron, For the Love of Wildlife

I’m delighted to support the work of Donalea Patman and Jason Wood on pushing for a ban on importation of African lion products.

Australia became the first country to ban the importation of lion trophies and body parts and now we are working to have more countries join us in this ban. This would not have been possible without Donalea Patman, Founder, For the Love of Wildlife.

Our Mission

To stay immobilised and silent whilst our natural world is under siege is a crime against nature. It seems that humans have lost their connection to the environment and the planet. If we’re to change the demise we have to be courageous to face ourselves, get real about what is happening and act from a place of deep compassion. It is no longer acceptable to “turn a blind eye”…we are all in this together and it’s our job to make a change, however small.

Our Aim

It is the aim of this foundation to raise Australia’s presence to not only step up, but lead the world when it comes to our relationship with animals and wildlife.
Through leading the human animal relationship we can inspire the planet to live harmoniously, respectfully and in unity with all living beings.

As we stand at the 11th hour, time is running out and passionate, creative, love in action is required.

Get involved, be wild,
you’ll be surprised at what you can do!

What can I really do?

This is what you can do TODAY.

Write or call your local member and ask them where animals are on their agenda.

For the Love of Wildlife has worked with a number of politicians but mostly with Federal Member Jason Wood, who championed the issue of captive breeding and canned hunting of Africa’s lions with then Environment Minister, Greg Hunt.  This resulted in the Federal Government banning the importation of lion trophies and body parts, a global first and followed by France and the Netherlands with the US implementing strict import laws.

Our current focus is the unregulated domestic trade in elephant ivory and rhino horn in both Australia and New Zealand which is allowing the opportunity for illegal and recently poached items to be sold through out markets. All trade creates demand and the decimation of elephants and rhinos requires global political will. Again this work is a focus for Jason Wood MP, who has been instrumental in the formation of a Parliamentary Inquiry into the trade.
