WildCats is known for giving out grants to conservation projects, but it is also in receipt of an annual grant itself which pays for salaries and basic overheads. Whilst WildCats is a part of the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) and sits within the Conservation & Policy department with support from Finance, HR, Legal and IT services, it has relied on this top-up grant for the past 13 years. Over this time we have Dreamworld Wildlife Foundation (DWF) to thank for providing this money first as a donor and since 2012 as a welcome partner of ZSL.
DWF, based in Queensland Australia, has granted over £618,700 to WildCats for its (and previously 21st Century Tiger) operations and another £619,607 to directly support field conservation programmes in Russia and Sumatra making it our all-time top donor.
Due to this DFW grant, WildCats are able to donate 100% of all the other donations received to the chosen projects.
The WildCats team and ZSL are delighted to have been notified of the grant for 2021. Thank you DWF!
