David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) is proud to work with an array of wildlife warriors and committed advocates for conservation. Our partners are all passionate about conservation and an invaluable part of the larger David Shepherd family.

It is only through a collective voice that we have the power to turn the tide on species extinction.

Our ground-based Conservation Partners are the true heroes of DSWF.  The brave men and women we are proud to support, who operate in some of the world’s most harsh and challenging landscapes, are the reason we exist.  Based on trusted relationships they are the custodians and guardians of wildlife and act as the first line of defence between extinction and survival.

In the same vein as our founder, David Shepherd, our awe-inspiring Art Ambassadors, dedicated Partner Wildlife Artists, use their creative talents to raise funds and awareness for threatened wildlife. DSWF provides a platform for wildlife artists to give back to their fauna muses and wild inspiration.

The unwavering support we receive from our Celebrity Ambassadors allows us to elevate our voice and amplify our conservation message. 

At DSWF we firmly believe that through greater collaboration and with unwavering support of all our partners we have a fighting chance at ending wildlife crime and putting a stop to the illegal wildlife trade.
