Green Paw Project is an international charity dedicated to the welfare of animals. We are a strictly non-profit organisation that receives all of its funding from generous sponsors, as well as monthly, yearly and one-off donations. Green Paw Project is a registered charity in the UK and Malawi, Africa.
Across the globe there are countless beautiful animals that urgently need our help. Many species have greatly diminished in number, while others expand as a result of overbreeding and are left uncared for and helpless. In most cases humans are the sole reason for these abnormal changes. Therefore it’s also us who are responsible for now changing the tide and saving these animals.
Green Paw Project are dedicated and determined to make a difference. We primarily offer free veterinary treatment to domestic and wild animals to far-flung locations across the globe, such Ecuador in 2015, and proposed projects of Malawi from 2019/2020. This is our way of taking extensive action to stem the ever-increasing extinction numbers, whilst also protecting the growth of our domestic animals on the streets.
Wherever we go our main focus is always to inspire. That’s why we encourage our volunteers to interact with people directly; it’s the only way to gain insight and learn what needs to be done, whilst planting fruitful and positive seeds, leaving the community better off for us having been there.
In order to achieve our aims we set up hands-on projects with groups of volunteers and veterinary experts, we therefore need your help.
In addition to our hands-on approach, which is focused on issues that directly affect the welfare of animals, we also devote a great deal of time to raising awareness of the human connection with the natural world.
There was once a time when all of humanity lived alongside other animals and our natural world in a well-balanced eco system. Now many of us are cocooned in the comfortable shell of modern technology, and spend a lot of our spare time ‘Plugged in’, meaning that many of us have a fragmented connection with our beautiful planet and all that inhabit it.
The majority of the modern world has lost the knowledge, ability and drive to live off the land. We no longer forage, nor are we inclined to reap the rewards of sustainable living. Many of us don’t know how to grow our own fruit, vegetables and salads anymore. Instead we rely heavily on a handful of commercial supermarkets, and have become disconnected from the realities of food production.
With the human population rising so dramatically more and more land is being swallowed-up for agriculture. This increases the levels of green house and CO2 gases, consumes much of our fresh water wastage, empties our seas, and is also the main reason why we chop down huge swaths of rainforest, forgetting that they are Earth’s lungs and home to many endangered species.
These combined issues have a very negative effect on the natural world, and even damage our own wellbeing. However our Reconnection campaign isn’t about shedding all your worldly possessions and fleeing for the nearest forest, it’s about recognising the glaring fact that everyone has an individual responsibility to take care of our beautiful planet, and all that live in it.
