Impact Stories

December 4, 2018 — Congo

ESI stopped the illegal killing of gorillas in southern Congo since 2010. We keep working hard in Congo to extend our wildlife conservation work to other areas and many other endangered animals.

December 4, 2018 — Pacific Ocean

We cleaned up a large marine area in the Pacific Ocean in central Philippines and Indonesia where floating plastics are posing big threat to wildlife and ocean. We removed 400 pounds of floating plastic per day for 3 months and dispose them properly for their reuse when possible, reducing the mortality of marine wildlife and removing long-lasting plastics.

December 4, 2018 — Congo

Endangered Species International supported the creation of protected area for rainforest in southern Congo. Thousands of species are finally protected..

December 4, 2018 — Marine Protected Area in the Philippines

With your support, we created a coral reef marine protected area in the Philippines protecting at least 230 species of rare corals and 120 species of fish including sharks. The protected area covers 60 hectares of coral reef and deep ocean and will protect endangered sharks, sea turtles, dolphins, many coral species and many more threatened marine animals.
