Gabby Wild is an animal welfare activist and wildlife conservationist. Serving as the public face of The Gabby Wild Foundation, Inc, a registered 501(c)(3) charity, and working alongside the charity's board members, Gabby spreads awareness and simultaneously raises funds to support and conserve either a specific animal or ecosystem.
Gabby conducts her work through a variety of creative fundraising campaigns, such as competitions, challenges, and travel expeditions. Often Gabby incorporates veterinary care for the animals while promoting their aid/conservation.
Each campaign conducted involves two components:
- Awareness-spreading to bolster attentiveness for the animal's plight
- Fundraising to provide a direct means for aiding the specific animal
All funds are collected through The Gabby Wild Foundation, Inc., which then gives all collected donations to efficient, certified charities, research organizations, and non-governmental organizations (NGO's) that are directly aiding the animal for which the campaign features.
But how does The Gabby Wild Foundation, Inc. select the animals which to aid?
Wild animals are chosen based upon the following qualifications:
- Immediate need of attention, such as in the event of a recent disaster.
- Threatened status. For example, we give preference to animals that are "critically endangered" as opposed to those that are "threatened".
- Lack of conservation attention, such as a newly discovered species or a critically endangered species that is receiving little to no assistance.
- Guarantee that a reliable charity, research group, or NGO will be able to protect the animal with the funds raised for it.
All welfare issues for both wildlife/exotic animals and domesticated species are aided based upon:
- Urgent demand for re-adjudication of unjust litigation;
- Evidence of cruel treatment;
- Instigation of necessary welfare reforms.
We welcome suggestions of animals and welfare issues that we should contribute. Please understand that due to the high volume of requests, we are unable to accommodate most of them, but we will try to change and aid as many creatures as possible.
