The pandemic halted tourism around the globe and poachers became even moreemboldened to encroach on protected lands. Now that the tourism industry has somewhat normalized the-boots-on-the-ground organizations have been able to generate money asthey did pre-pandemic.
It has been tough, the damage done is getting fixed by hard work and dedication. Visitors, guides and travel hotspots are now back to serving as sanctuaries for iconic wildlife. Investigations show that an animal is illegally poached every 15 minutes
GLOBAL E-RACE EXTINCTION (GERE): SPN’s initiative that unites multiple NGO’s in the fight against poaching & drives the mission by creating awareness.
Stop Poaching Now! is dedicated to wildlifeconservation through the support and coordination of community-based efforts aimed at combating poaching operations. We strive to harness the power of education to reduce the demand for illegal wildlife products.
Defending Wildlife Requires DEDICATION, EFFORT, AND RESOURCES!
Frontline anti-poaching rangers, conservation organizations, and educationalprograms heavily rely on SPN’s ongoing financial and logistical support to help ensure thevery survival of species threatened with extinction. SPN seeks donations, event sponsorship,and corporate contributions to carry out its mission an to also fund our Global ConservationEducation Programs. (GCEP)

SPN’s GLOBAL E-RACE EXTINCTION directly benefits boots-on-the-ground organizations & SPN’s Global Conservation Education Program. (GCEP)
In 2023, we endeavor to exceed last year’s record-high fundraising triumph and push our wildlife conservation efforts to new heights, with a new goal to raise $200,000.
With 17 Global Goals in mind, SPN partners with businesses andindividuals with a focus on where they want their contribution to go. Thegoals are key to their achievement. Each person or organization has itsown set of priorities which will drive the action it needs to take. SPNaligns the goals with the our tribe of beneficiaries which through thefunds raised will make a lasting impact.
Getting to grips with the targets and indicators that sit behind each goalis fundamental. You’ll want to understand what impact your our yourbusiness has. With a clear strategy, SPN will drive resources for goalorientated initiatives. With full reports and accountability our partnerscan track their contribution.
Statistics indicate over the next decade, human activity willconsume 50% of intact wildlife habitats for endangered megafauna like painted dogs, pangolins, tigers, primates, bears, lions, elephants, rhinos and various other criticalspecies. At current rates of destruction, protected areas will bethe last bastions for wildlife in developing countries.
Year on year we are proud to have achieved fundraisinggoals. This year should be the year SPN surpasses amillstone, to have raise over $1,000,000 since inception.
By launching numerous fundraising programs, SPN over the years has supported its boots-on-theground beneficiaries and partners putting the needs of organizations to the public to raise awareness and money. SPN’s fundraising has served and impacted the organizations under its umbrella and itwould not have been possible without the generous contributions form our donor community.
At Stop Poaching Now (SPN), we believe that conservation education programs require a multi-faceted approach to reach the widest audience and have the greatest impact. They also require that the program be equally accessible to all, regardless of culture, socio-economic status, or geographic location.Therefore, all SPN education programs are provided both free of charge and in multiple modalities, including online for access from anywhere at any time.
For decades, conservationists have been focused on sustaining the planet. With human populations, rapidly approaching 8 billion people, conservation is losing the battle.Wild lion population is now under 20,000. Today, there are fewer than 80 Sumatran rhinos in the wild. Only 5000 pangolins and tigers remain in the wild because of the demand for fur, trinkets and mythical Asian medicine with zero scientific benefit.
When the keystone species disappear, so will the flora and fauna that depend on them. This is not just one person, or country’s problem… This is a MASSIVE GLOBAL CRISIS, It is every capable human’s responsibility.
This concept has over the years evolved. What started in 2015 as a local cycling event to raise $25,000 for elephants and rhinos, during the pandemic mushroomed into a global movement raising over $200,000 in 3 years with a potential to raise millions for education and protection of species.
This year’s concept is to further engage local communities across the globe. SPN’s ambassadors will be organizing groups of likeminded conservationists to come together in solidarity to educate, impact and continue to empower the change we need.
GERE intends to create an awareness that we all need to “join the herd”, protect habitat, co-exist with local wildlife, and safeguard the planet forfuture generations. SPN and its affiliates around the globe have come together year on year to celebrate nature, create awareness about poaching and exercise health with a goal to raise funds that will support boots-on-the-ground organizations, partners of SPN and continue tosupport GCEP.

It takes a village to raise an elephant…and protecta tiger. At SPN we bring that village together!
