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 radical, creative, love in action is required.

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

The gift of giving

The undeniable truth behind any organisation, whether that’s a company or not for profit is that money is needed to operate. We are incredibly grateful for all contributions as we do rely heavily on your generosity and support.

Every donation is valuable and necessary to do our work. We work with government and law-makers with the intention of creating significant change in legislation and law. It’s our belief that this is where the critical work lies and of course it’s not glamorous, we’re engaged in loads of admin and meetings but hope to reduce the need for rescue centres and sanctuaries. That said, we need your help (and so do they)!

Every little bit helps!
Donations are secure and we do not keep or pass on your details.

What can I 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 worked with Jason Wood MP, taking the issue of captive breeding and canned hunting to the Federal Government which resulted in  a ban on importation of lion trophies and body parts, a global first.  France, the Netherlands and the US have followed our lead.

With less lions in the wild that rhinos, it’s imperative that we continue working on protecting and saving lions and their habitat. We’re fiercely against trophy hunting and given that there are only 5 viable lion populations left, as few as 15,000 lions in total across all Africa, we cannot afford killing for fun. Despite the hunting myth; that they only take out the oldest and weakest animals, no trophy hunter wants a scraggly old animal hanging on their wall. They take the best specimen which weakens the genetics of a pride, leaving prides vulnerable – more than 20 individuals can die after a pride leader has been shot.

Despite the argument that captive breeding lions takes pressure off wild populations, 8000 lions in 200 farms in South Africa alone, cubs are stolen from prides (who are run down and killed) to reinvigorate the genetics of farmed lions. Breeding lions which are hand raised and tame to be rented out to tourist attractions, when too old the pet are returned to horrific conditions, waiting to be bought online for a hunter to kill.
