AFRICAN WILDLIFE FOUNDATION
The African Wildlife Foundation's mission is direct: to work together with the people of Africa to ensure the wildlife and wild lands of Africa endure forever. "AWF is the leading international conservation organisation focused exclusively on Africa, and for over fifty years the key to our success has been creative partnerships. In the past year we have worked with respected corporate leaders such as Disney and Starbucks, as well as smaller yet equally innovative businesses like Alex Woo jewellery and L*Space designer swimwear. These collaborations were tailored to fit the respective partner's brand and target audience and included promotion through events, the web, African Geographic Magazine and in print and e-communications distributed globally. A partnership with AWF sends a strong message about your company or brand's commitment to the environment and improving rural livelihoods in Africa. It also gives your organisation the opportunity to play a meaningful role in safeguarding awe-inspiring and threatened wildlife like rhinoceroses, lions, and elephants. Whatever your interest, our work in fourteen African countries gives your company a range of projects to choose from as a creative way to increase brand awareness, build consumer loyalty and, of course, drive incremental sales. Some exciting AWF initiatives that your company might consider supporting are shown below. Please visit www.awf.org/partners for more information on how respected companies and brands have advanced the mission of the African Wildlife Foundation while engaging the support of consumers worldwide. To discuss ways your company or brand might develop a cause-marketing partnership or sponsorship program with AWF, please contact us". Contact: Daniel McGahey.

DROITWICH FERRET WELFARE
Droitwich Ferret Welfare is a registered charity (no.1102038) involved with the rescue, care and re-homing of ferrets in need throughout Worcestershire and the surrounding area. The organisation is a member of the Fundraising Standards Board. Ferrets are fascinating animals which probably suffer more than most other domestic animals from neglect and sheer ignorance of their needs. Since the Welfare was established in 2003, hundreds of ferrets have been taken into care and the charity currently anticipates that over 200 animals will be brought to it every year. In essence the Welfare fosters stray, unwanted and abandoned ferrets, provides veterinary treatment where necessary, seeks new homes and carries out home checks where appropriate. The organisation has a non-breeding policy and generally all ferrets are neutered/spayed before rehoming. This is particularly important for jills (females), who often become very sick and even die from oestrogen-induced anaemia if they are not mated or provided with other means of coming out of season. The charity works with veterinary surgeons, other animal welfare organisations, pet stores, garden centres and local businesses. "Our mission is to advance the education of the public in the care and husbandry of ferrets, introduce live ferrets to the public, give talks to local groups, attend local shows and hold ferret awareness days. In particular we have noticed that many stray ferrets arrive at the Welfare with gastro-enteritic problems and have recently started a programme of investigation via laboratory testing. In this way we hope we will gain a clearer idea of what may cause these problems and which are the most common. Funds are needed to help us continue this valuable work".

RAPTOR TRUST
Raptor Trust is looking for sponsorship either for one of two projects and/or its work in rehabilitating wild birds of prey in Norfolk. "The first project is a new and very different mobile education stand. Instead of being a gazebo filled with captive birds for people to look at, we want to provide a stand where people can be educated and get involved with activities they can learn from. We wanted to reconnect people with nature and their local wild bird populations. We want to teach people about the birds, habitats, prey, health, populations and status and the difficulties they face and how to help. This stand will be used across Norfolk, and elsewhere occasionally too, and will be seen at events such as the Royal Norfolk Show, as well as at school talks and workshops and so on. Sponsors' details will be printed in plenty of places on the stand as well as on our Facebook and web pages, and in press releases. The second project is for a training and networking symposium where we hope to educate professionals across various vocations from the police, wardens, vets, etc., as well as the public and schools, all attending different sessions on different days. This will include infection control issues, crime, disturbance, First Aid, and so on. We should be able to educate up to 2,000 people for only £5.00 each. This will help deal with rehabilitation, conservation, crime and welfare issues and there is not another event or opportunity currently like this in the UK. Our rehabilitation work has increased dramatically as we are now taking on over 400 wild birds of prey just in Norfolk. With the rising costs of food, mileage and insurance this will cost us around £45.00 per bird on average! We are all volunteers working from home and provide all of the nursing ourselves, to keep costs low and provide the most appropriate relaxed environment to aid in these birds' recoveries. Please get in touch to discuss sponsorship opportunities". Contact: Claire Halls. Address: 31 Holworthy Road, Norwich NR5 9DG. Tel.: 07599134655. E-mail:

    CA/0003     BRITISH FERAL GOAT RESEARCH GROUP
The British Feral Goat Research Group is Britain's dedicated feral goat organisation. A small group currently undergoing registered charity status, the organisation represents this rare and threatened animal. The British Primitive (feral goat with no modern goat blood through it) Goat is now one of our rarer breeds. All our domestic breeds of today are descended from foreign imports, and our primitive breed would have died out completely but for the fact that some escaped or were turned loose on the hills to run wild. But having all died out in domestication our feral population has been in decline for some time. Recent large culls (eg circa 1,200 in Galloway) have seen numbers drop dramatically. Known introgression with modern breeds has spoiled some herds. The number of true British Primitive Goats has therefore been severely reduced (possibly to circa 1,500). Urgent action is needed to protect, preserve and promote what is rapidly becoming a remnant of our Primitive breed. Sponsors can help safeguard this beautiful animal and educate the public about its importance. The organisation currently receives no funding for this work. Contact: Tracy Livingstone.

    CA/0007     FRIENDS OF AKITAS TRUST
"I am posting this request as National Co-ordinator of the Friends of Akitas Trust (UK) - registered charity number 1128641 - to enquire about corporate sponsorship. Akitas are a large spitz breed of dog, originating from the mountainous northern regions of Japan. The Trust is a not for profit charity that specialises in rescuing and re-homing Akitas in need. The organisation was formed in late 2007 when it became apparent there was a gap in provision for Akitas ending up on 'death row' in council pounds across the UK. One of our aims is to raise awareness of the breed and roll out an educational programme nationwide. We currently adhere to this by taking part in organised events throughout the UK and also by holding our own. Every year we attend Crufts and Discover Dogs, etc. as well as hosting smaller scale walks and fun days locally. FOA started off with one dog, a young Akita bitch named Molly, who was on death row in a South Yorkshire pound, who was subsequently re-homed in December 2007. As an organisation in high demand, we are facing many costs related to kennelling, vet bills and transport, not to mention the day-to-day costs of running the organisation. The Trust would welcome the opportunity to work with a sponsor to strengthen both brands. We are currently one of the largest Akita breed rescues in the UK with many thousands of forum members. We have a high number of followers on social networking sites and feel we have a lot to offer any potential sponsor in terms of exposure and low cost marketing". E-mail:

Our current success is The Bandit (aka Buzz,) a piebald pony stallion that both CHAPS and the BSPA refused to grade, as he had no known parentage. This year he has been unbeaten (with one exception where he was second at Equifest) and last weekend took the title of In Hand Coloured Champion Of Britain at the International Showing Society Championships at The Royal London Show. We compete most weekends whilst finances allow and advertising could be placed both on our lorry and we would be happy to prefix Buzz's show name with the sponsor's name.

The object of The Kennel Club is to promote, in every way possible, the general improvement of dogs. The club has a long history, dating back to the time in 1870 when the National Dog Club Committee was formed and a discussion ensued which resulted in twelve gentlemen founding The Kennel Club. The number of those involved in the government of the dog world in this country has increased tremendously and The Kennel Club is now concerned with aspects of general canine matters which could not have been foreseen in the 1870s, when the conduct of dog shows and trials was the sole consideration. The first Crufts show in that name was booked into the Royal Agricultural Hall, Islington in 1891, named after its founder, Charles Cruft. Sponsorship opportunities are available via high profile canine events such as Crufts itself, Discover Dogs, Young Kennel Club and the Good Citizen Dog Scheme.

The Mammal Society is the voice for British mammals and the only organisation solely dedicated to the study and conservation of all British mammals. Many of our British mammals are disappearing from the countryside: red squirrels, dormice, water voles – the list is too long. We can only protect our threatened mammals if we know where they live and how to identify them and the signs (droppings, footprints) they leave behind. The Mammal Society runs nationwide surveys to monitor the populations of British mammals and identify their habitat requirements. They are also the leading provider of top quality training in all aspects of mammal work from identification skills to survey techniques. This all costs money and so the society needs support urgently to help them expand and build on this work. Sponsorship opportunities exist to fund projects on individual species (eg water shrew) or groups of species (eg garden mammals). There are also opportunities to sponsor the society's training courses - on a particular topic or area of the country (eg Northern Ireland) - or other aspects of their work.

    CA/0025     THE WILDLIFE TRUSTS FOR BIRMINGHAM & THE BLACK COUNTRY: INTERNATIONAL DAWN CHORUS DAY
International Dawn Chorus Day boasts a position as one of the most enduring and popular annual environmental events on the calendar. The simple concept is of early morning gatherings to hear the dawn chorus at nature reserves, parks or other open spaces, often followed by a healthy, hearty breakfast. The history and background to this exciting event is documented on www.idcd.info, the IDCD website. Over 150 events from around the world were registered initially, with many, many more unregistered events. Participating UK organisations include The Wildlife Trusts, RSPB, Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, National Trust, English Nature, Scottish Natural Heritage, Local Authority Ranger Services and very many more, down to small local groups. Birdwatch Ireland organises a busy programme of events in Eire. Thousands of individuals make the effort to rise early and appreciate Nature's daily miracle on International Dawn Chorus Day. Millions more get to here about the event and learn more about the need to conserve wild birds. Excellent press and media coverage was achieved, mostly in the UK, but also with a good profile in North America, Europe and elswhere in the world. The message of International Dawn Chorus Day is a simple one, allowing hundreds of organisations to raise the profile of their essential conservation work for wild birds and their habitats. The colours and sounds of wild birds make this a sponsorship opportunity well suited to multi-media promotion, especially using the web. International Dawn Chorus Day needs sponsorship support so that the organisation can encourage a greater number of event registrations; run a telephone/email support service for event organisers and help people find their local event; and also to raise the profile of the event even higher. The UK organisers also want to increase their contact with overseas event organisers, especially in Europe, North America, Australasia and Southern Africa. This is a package with great appeal for a UK-based organisation. The organisers have been able to make International Dawn Chorus Day a remarkable success - with your support, they say, it could be the biggest international wildlife event of all! For the full story, visit the website or get in touch. Contact: Mr. Neil Wyatt, Chief Executive. Address: 28 Harborne Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 3AA. Tel.: 0121 454 1199. Fax: 0121 454 6556.

    CA/0027     WORLD ANIMAL DAY
    Reap the benefits of being the corporate sponsor of 'World Animal Day'    World Animal Day offers an innovative and exciting opportunity to help develop a sponsor's business within and beyond the current borders. The World Animal Day initiative is an ideal Corporate Social Responsibility project as it can take a sponsor's organisation into the homes of animal lovers in every corner of the world and benefit people, animals and the environment at the same time. When joined in partnership, organisations have the power to reach new audiences, expand projects and make a difference in the world around us. That is what the organisers of World Animal Day are asking of potential sponsors today: "Please join us and help make a difference. This would be your pledge to the world - that your organisation supports the improvement of animal welfare standards around the globe". The initiative unites the animal welfare movement worldwide, embracing all animals and the unique concerns of each, in every country. www.worldanimalday.org.uk is the central portal that connects everyone who cares about animals in celebration of this special day. Participation in World Animal Day continues to grow with the number of events in 2009 being more than 100% higher than in 2008, held in at least eighty countries around the globe. Many 2009 Event Reports have been published on the website - simply click on the links from the home page above the slide show. Events to highlight animal welfare issues and fundraise were organised by large multi-national organisations, right through to small grass root groups with very limited means. World Animal Day is the central platform they need to connect to animal advocates throughout the world, acting as an umbrella by embracing all animals and the unique concerns of each in every country. It provides societies with the opportunity they need to raise funds and draw public attention to the valuable work they carry out, often under difficult and challenging conditions. "World Animal Day is not linked to any one individual, organisation or campaign, but belongs to everyone! Perusing the website will provide you with a better picture of what this project is all about, and if you would like more detailed information please send me an email. Also, if possible, we would be delighted to meet with you to discuss our proposal further. I look forward to hearing from you via letter, email to info@worldanimalday.org.uk or telephone on 01242 252871". Contact: Caroline Barker, Project Manager.
