You might not know this, but wild animals outnumber us humans by a landslide! That's right, for every one of us, there's at least 1,000 wild vertebrates and 100 million land-living arthropods. But don't worry, WAI is on the case!
They believe that even by making changes that help a small fraction of these animals, we can improve the lives of a huge number of individuals. Just like the ShamWow absorbs spills and messes, they're absorbing the suffering of wild animals. At WAI, they pinpoint the hottest research areas with the biggest potential to shake up the field. And it's not just talk, their research is making wild animal suffering interventions a reality, with projects such as wild animal contraceptions just around the corner, they’re committed to helping save animals from unnecessary suffering!

Cause area: Improving animal welfare Wild Animal Initiative (WAI) works to improve wild animal welfare by expanding the field of wild animal research. By conducting its own research and helping support the needs of other wild animal researchers, the organisation aims to garner public and academic interest in wild animal welfare and identify evidence-based solutions to the struggles wild animals face.
