There is a war taking place on our planet for which there are no headlines, no demonstrations, and no voice. It is a war against some of the most endangered species on our planet and it takes place in some of the most majestic and unexplored biospheres of the world. Unseen and untouched by the Western world, these places are well-suited to commit atrocious acts in hiding.

The purpose of the Bush Warriors organization is to create global awareness about the plight of the world’s wildlife and biodiversity. Many human activities are responsible for species declines around the globe. Exploding human demand for animals and their body parts is fueling some of the most horrific, inhumane, exploitative crimes against wildlife— poaching, bushmeat trade, exotic animal trade, and so much more. Some of the world’s most popular animals— elephants, rhinos, tigers, lions, dolphins, bears, and more— are on the brink of extinction because of this. At the current poaching rate these species are expected to permanently disappear from their natural habitat within the next 20-50 years. Some, such as central African elephants, could be gone in less than three years.
This war on wildlife can be stopped when enough people in the world stand up and demand it to come to an end immediately. In order for this to happen, more need to know about the devastating impacts that wildlife poaching, animal trafficking, and the bushmeat trade are having on the world’s last remaining wildlife populations and the communities that co-exist with these species. It is public outcry and action about these issues that will force change and save earth’s biodiversity. This is why we want to get you, fellow Bush Warriors, involved in our efforts to raise awareness.

The ultimate goal of Bush Warriors is to go extinct. We want to be the ONLY thing that goes extinct. Our extinction would mean there is no more need to raise awareness about the plight of wildlife because all species are THRIVING in absence of the current wildlife genocide. We hope to get the global community involved to save wildlife and give us no reason to exist. We invite you to join us to fight on behalf of voiceless creatures around the globe and bring victory for wildlife!

We will soon be launching the Bush Warriors Fund, by which we will partner with small, community-based, grassroots conservation organizations to support various projects that will boost conservation efforts and have major impacts for protecting wildlife and biodiversity.
