Let’s help save the Asian elephant
In less than a century, the world’s population of Asian elephants has declined by at least 50% - and now there could be fewer than 50,000 left in the wild.
From being poached for their ivory, to losing their homes because of industrial development… to being captured to entertain tourists – it’s been bad news for these magnificent creatures.
But there is hope. There’s lots of work going on to help prevent further habitat loss, and to educate local communities on how to live in harmony with these elephants – so hopefully the future is looking brighter for these gentle giants.

Let’s help save the bumblebee
This little creature is more important than you’d think from its size. By pollenating plants and flowers, the humble bumble has a huge impact on how the natural world functions.
But due to climate change and the use of pesticides on plants, our bee population is dwindling – and with it, the charming bumblebee.
In the UK we’ve already lost 13 species of bee – and we need to work hard to stop any more from disappearing. There’s lots of conservation work happening to do just that – and you can help too, simply by planting some flowers in your garden or a window box… so the bees can come and do their thing.

Let’s help save the Amur leopard
The majestic Amur leopard is one of the most critically endangered species in the world, with only 100 of them left in the wild.
They live a solitary life in the far east of Russia (where the temperature often plunges below freezing) – but because of things like road building, forest fires, farming and industrial development, their homes have gradually been destroyed.
The good news is that conservation efforts are starting to work, with international trade in Amur leopards now prohibited, plus population monitoring and education of local communities – so the numbers of these beautiful animals are starting to rise again.
