A large number of wildlife organisations in Europe were founded in response to concerns in Africa, Asia and South America. The European organisations mainly raise awareness and funds to support fieldwork and education in different countries around the world. Some take a more direct approach and have programmes in place to reintroduce animals into the wild. Other European organisations also work to protect local wildlife and eco-systems. You can find a list below with some of these organisations.
