Thornley Wildlife Foundation

The Thornley Wildlife Foundation is an information platform for endangered species. It was founded by Michael E .Thornley – Author, Entrepreneur & Naturalist in 2016.

Conservation of endangered species through a combination of environmental protection & education; habitat repair & rewilding efforts and breeding programs conducted by reputable zoos, is wholeheartedly supported by the TWF.

Saving nature through education is at the very heart of what we do at TWF.

It is our mission to find and share the solutions that are saving the myriad array of life that coexists with us on this planet we all call home.
Thus as an individual… YOU… may support these efforts by volunteering either time and/or money to these worthwhile projects.

(The TWF is a not for profit; non monetary; educational and media platform. )

Yet we all have much to do! Did you realise that humans are behind the current rate of species extinction, which is at least 100–1,000 times higher than what nature had intended. In fact the “WWF’s 2014 Living Planet Report found wildlife populations of vertebrate species—mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish—have declined by 52 percent over the last 40 years.”

“And the impacts will reach far beyond the potential cultural loss of iconic species like tigers, rhinos and whales.”


The good news is that there are a number successful wildlife recovery stories ranging from southern Africa’s black rhino to Panda Bears in China. And this is done in unison in helping to protect rich and varied ecosystems while ensuring people continue to benefit from nature.
