About Wild Animal Initiative

About our mission
Wild Animal Initiative is an entirely remote 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit working to understand and improve the lives of wild animals. Read more about us here.

We believe we have a responsibility to act to improve the well-being of wild animals. There is still so much we don’t know about which animals are sentient, what their lives are like in the wild, and how we can responsibly help them. Our work funds cutting-edge science, aids the careers of researchers in the field, and contributes to original research.

We are looking to work with people who approach our mission as an inherently inclusive endeavor and celebrate the differences of others. We strongly encourage Black, Brown, Indigenous, Latinx, and other people of the global majority to apply. We welcome applicants of any religion, age, origin, class, citizenship, parental status, disability status, genetics, sexual orientation, and gender.

Note: We are unfortunately not able to sponsor work visas at this time and require candidates to already be eligible to work in the jurisdictions where they live or will live by the start of their employment.
