About The Freeland Foundation
The Freeland Foundation is an International Non-Government Organization, headquartered in Bangkok, that works in Asia on environmental conservation. The organization combats the illegal wildlife trade and habitat conservation, addressing threats to endangered species, like tigers, including poaching in protected areas, smuggling, and the subsequent sale and consumption of Wildlife. Their global team of law enforcement and development experts work alongside government officers, local communities, students, and other NGOs in Asia, Africa and America to educate, empower, and catalyze action. They are known as innovative risk-takers.
Most big cats are now in decline. Tigers, leopards, lions, and jaguars are being poached for the multi-billion dollar illegal wildlife trade. Thailand’s big cats are especially under threat due to poaching to supply nearby markets. Not surprisingly, the ecosystems depending on these predators are also in peril.
But there is hope! Freeland’s flagship program, Surviving Together, has helped nearly extinct tiger populations in Thailand rebound. In March last year, the world’s first evidence of a breeding tiger population was discovered in Eastern Thailand: an area abandoned by many conservation groups for nearly 10 years assuming there were no tigers left. Since the program began in 1999, Surviving Together has developed a comprehensive approach to conserving protected areas and their biodiversity, bringing together local rangers and reformed poachers as unlikely allies. Through these collaborative efforts, the program addresses the root causes of environmental degradation and bolsters protection on the front lines of conservation, where it is needed most. The Surviving Together has a six-pronged approach: On the ground Ranger training and support, the introduction of Alternative Livelihoods for poachers, Community Education, Protected Area Monitoring, Wildlife Monitoring, and Human-Animal Conflict Mitigation.
