The facts are stark indeed - the decline in many wildlife species as a result of poaching and other criminal activity is threatening their very survival. Since the 1970s, for example, 98% of the world’s black rhino have been slaughtered - today fewer than 4,000 survive and, in the last decade, the tiger population has plummeted to fewer than 3,000 in the wild. In light of these startling facts DSWF hopes to promote awareness of endangered mammals through educational projects in the UK.


In September 2003, in collaboration with professional teachers, DSWF produced a Global Canvas Education Pack to engage children with practical and absorbing worksheets with the aim of bringing conservation issues, ranging from environmental pollution, habitat destruction and endangered mammals, into the classroom and offering practical advise as to how schoolchildren can help in our fight to save wildlife, protect the habitat and support the local people who depend on it.
