Animal Protection Agency Foundation Donations

The Animal Protection Agency Foundation carries out research into the impacts of the wildlife trade on individual animals, ecology and the natural environment. An important role of the organisation is also to help protect people from making the mistakes of acquiring wild animals and pet-linked disease.

Established in 2008, the APA Foundation conducts awareness raising programmes on all issues concerning the trade in wild animals as pets and is currently researching and writing a programme of education for schools.

A new initiative has involved buying - with the aid of its supporters - habitat of Ecuadorian rainforest to ensure its permanent protection.

By supporting the APA Foundation, you are investing in the future of wildlife and habitat protection by helping projects that make a lasting difference.

How donations are spent


Our strategic campaign initiatives need to be carefully researched. This may involve undercover investigations, scientific analysis and then the expensive production of reports, leaflets and other campaign materials. We keep our administration costs to a minimum to ensure that more pennies in the pound directly benefit campaigns.


Informing the public of the scale and severity of species and environmental destruction, and animal suffering inherent in the exotic pet trade is an ongoing necessity. Our education programmes are key to reducing the demand for exotics and require that we distribute large volumes of attractive and colourful literature. We have to cover the cost of postage and printing as well as the upkeep of this website as a comprehensive educational resource.

How else can I donate?

You can donate online - see top of page - or if you prefer, you can make a donation by phone via credit card or debit card by calling the APA office on 01273 674253. Otherwise you can donate by post and send your cheque or postal order made out to APA Foundation to:
