EYES IN THE FIELD
Not all heroes wear capes!
There are extraordinary people doing extraordinary things every day, often suffering insult and injury doing their utmost to protect foxes, birds, badgers and other wildlife.
Brave individuals working tirelessly in the field to save and protect animals.
We regularly offer funding to those who need support and equipment, and will always try to do what we can to help.
It’s our way of empowering people to protect British wildlife.

A VEHICLE FOR THE ROAMING SABS
Pictured are the Roaming Sabs with their vehicle bought by Protect the Wild in 2022.
This van is still being used to transport hunt saboteurs across the country and helping prevent illegal fox hunting from taking place.
In 2023 the vehicle was driven by a member of the Roaming Sabs on an extraordinary journey to help in Ukraine! Please read the remarkable account at “Roaming to Ukraine: from the frontline against illegal hunting to the frontline of an illegal war.”
Our funding helps put eyes in the field. We empower people in the ﬁght to save wildlife.
In 2021 Humberside Against Bloodsports thanked Protect the Wild for funding a new drone.
“With the use of the drone we were able to locate the hunt travelling away from the wind farm. From Beverly lane we were able to quietly get back overhead and monitor them as they headed down towards the A1034.
Heading down Cliffe road we followed the hunt as they entered a wood before losing them as they headed back towards the meet. We lost them for approximately half hour picking them back up as they headed into the meet. Due the fact that we had a constant drone presence over hunt we are 90% certain that they did not kill.
We are dedicating this sab and its success to an amazing organisation called Protect the Wild. Through a grant provided by Protect the Wild we were able to secure the funds to be able to buy enough drone batteries to constantly have the drone in the air.”
