Sloth bears in Gujarat, India need help to stay alive. Why? In retaliation to human-sloth bear conflicts, sloth bears in Gujarat are being killed. This is a big deal for long term survival of this species because sloth bears are listed as Vulnerable by the IUCN Red List. Sloth bears are just one step away from being listed as Endangered.
Here's the thing, the human-sloth bear conflict is preventable!
Our team is working to save lives in Gujarat India, both human and furry. How? With targeted, place-based, on-the-ground education that has been proven to work. We already have relationships with the local government, local educators, and local villagers. They all want our help. Sloth bears NEED our help.
We have our team in place. We have the tools we need. We just need to GET this program on the ground. For this step, we need your help. We need to raise $35,000 to get this program fully funded. If we can get 7,000 people to contribute only $5 each, we can start saving lives today. Please join us and be the "somebody" who helps. Thank you.
