Around the world wildlife is fighting for survival, facing threats such as climate change, habitat loss, illegal wildlife trade and conflict with humans. We are losing incredible animals such as pangolins and rhinos, which are hunted and traded in their millions. All funds raised from the Zoological Society of East Anglia’s Run for Wildlife event will help us to care and conserve some of the most wonderful and critically endangered animals across the world.
