Kiva Lending Team: Respect For Wildlife
We loan because...
We are alarmed at the way in which our native animals are currently being exploited, hurt or killed by humans. We are alarmed at the rate at which the planet's wild animals are being endangered due to poaching for greed, illegal trafficking and destruction of habitat. We are concerned for the welfare of individual animals, which have a right to live in the natural environment in peace, as well as the healthy survival of species and their eco-systems.
Hi. My name is Liz. I am extremely concerned about the plight of the elephant, both Asian and African, due to poaching for ivory, and mistreatment. I am also very concerned about the survival and welfare of the orangutan in Asia, and the consumption of palm oil which leads to habitat loss. Please join me in standing up for the world's wild animals and eco-systems. No matter which animals your are concerned about, this is a team for you!
