Based at London Scottish House, Veterans for Wildlife is an international charity committed to the protection of wildlife and the world’s critically endangered species. Established by veterans from the Royal Marines and British Army, it deploys highly-skilled and experienced former service personnel to play a key role in conservation and the prevention of wildlife crime. The charity has two main objectives: supporting conservation entities and rangers at grass roots level and the empowerment of military veterans. The charity committed no less than 3,240 hours of ground work to their mission in 2016-17, and saw the lives of so many former service personnel transformed.
