The animals that need our help


Supporting polar bears

Don’t be fooled, these big bears are incredibly vulnerable. In less than 20 years, if we don’t do more to protect their home, polar bear numbers could drop by 30% due to starvation, loss of habitat and being cruelly hunted. Lend a paw today, help give them strength so we can keep celebrating Christmas with them.



The Owls Trust

Supporting owls

Do you give a hoot this Christmas? Just 7% of Britain’s native woodlands are currently in good ecological condition leaving our beloved wildlife, including the iconic Christmas owls, at risk. Help them soar to a brighter future and many more yuletides to come.



Supporting snow leopards

Snow leopard populations are decreasing at an alarming rate, and it is estimated that only 4,000 of them remain. Without your help, these most mysterious cats might quickly become nothing but a memory. PTES has already had success in setting up a nature reserve for them, but their future is still uncertain. Leap into a more hopeful Christmas this year, support our festive wildlife.


UK Antarctic Heritage Trust

Supporting penguins

It’s penguin-ing to look like Christmas isn’t so bright for Antarctic penguins. With global temperatures continuing to rise, their habitat is changing. Help us help them.


Whale and Dolphin Conservation

Supporting narwals

Climate change and the shipping industry are putting these unicorns of the sea at significant risk of decline. Be a buddy to the narwhal this December, protect them before it’s too late.
