ORGANISATIONS WE SUPPORT
Auction4Wildlife takes great care in partnering with NGOs as our beneficiary that take a long-term, sustainable approach to wildlife and environment conservation underpinned by sound governance. Our aim is always to find enduring solutions rather than short-term fixes to conservation challenges.
Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden (KFBG) spreads over 148 hectares of land on the northern slopes of Tai Mo Shan, Hong Kong's highest mountain.
The Farm was established in 1956 to provide agricultural aid to farmers in need of support to help them lead independent lives; and to provide leisure and educational experience for the public. The theme gardens were designed and planted from the 1960's onwards, and through planting, natural process and protection from fire, what was once barren scrubland is now mature forest. Visitors are welcome.

Holistic Learning and Experience
We practise holistic learning approach through ‘3H’ – ‘Head‘, ‘Heart‘ and ‘Hands‘ which is suggested by Dr. Satish Kumar, the world renowned educator in the UK.
We venture out to remote parts of Hong Kong in search of seeds that will form the stock for rewilding our hillside, and we work the ground so that the soil is ready to work its magic.
Botanic Garden and Nature Reserve
We can do it by spending quiet, reflective time in nature; by growing some of our own food and nurturing soil; by watching birds, flowers and insects; by tuning in to natural sounds, scents and patterns and by simply communing with life.
Sustainable Living and Farming
Conservation and Research
In 2003, the Kadoorie Conservation China Department (KCC) was invited by the local authority to take an active role in saving the Hainan Gibbon. We launched the first population census and only confirmed the presence of 13 individuals in two groups.
Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation
Between 1994 and 2020, over 52,000 animals were received by the Rescue Centre. About half were successfully nursed back to health and returned to the wild, or were found a permanent home in an appropriate local or overseas conservation facility.
The winning bidder will also be able to choose another beneficiary from a designated list of charity organisations, with nature conservation as the main focus:
50% of the proceed will go to one of the above (to be chosen by the successful bidder) and the remaining 50% will go to Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden Corporation.
African Parks is a non-profit conservation organisation that takes on the complete responsibility for the rehabilitation and long-term management of national parks in partnership with governments and local communities.
Founded in 2000, in response to the dramatic decline of protected areas due to poor management and lack of funding, African Parks utilises a clear business approach to conserving Africa’s wildlife and remaining wild areas, securing vast landscapes and carrying out the necessary activities needed to protect the parks and their wildlife.

Beneficiary: African Parks
We are facing a conservation crisis in Africa. Some of the planet's most spectacular species are being lost, but we are working to protect them.
African Parks have the largest counter-poaching force in all of Africa for any one NGO. Their 1000 rangers provide safety for both wildlife and people.
AFRICAN PARKS' WORK
For protected areas to survive in the long-term, local people need to value them, and derive benefits from the park’s existence.
