What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Earth is currently amidst its 6th mass extinction with 1/4th of all mammals, 1/2 of all amphibians, and 1/8th of all birds at risk of extinction. The Gabby Wild Foundation combats these threats by providing complimentary veterinary care to these wildlife species internationally, as most funding for such aid is limited to non-existent, unless the species is owned in a well-endowed private collection, such as a zoo or private reserve. Collaborating NGO's, governmental agencies, shelters, and low-income private organisations often require veterinary assistance. Additionally, by providing educational programs to the public (both in countries where the conservation projects are taking place and where majority of funding is received) is vital to ensuring protection of threatened species.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Save Sumatra

A three-fold restoration project that includes 1) replanting one of the oldest rainforests in the world; 2) camera trapping of Sumatran rhinoceros, Sumatran elephant, and Sumatran tiger for population counting and behavioural studies; 3) veterinary intervention of injured wildlife, namely Sumatran elephants that suffer the most farmer:wildlife conflict

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Threats to Javan Rhino Survival:
- Natural disasters (i.e. Krakatoa eruption, earthquake, rising sea levels and tsunami) Invasive species (ie. Arenga palm)
- Niche competition with the Banteng
- Transmission of infection disease (ie. Trypanosoma evansi)
- Human land encroachment, including for illegal farming and land ownership claims Lack of community awareness and support around the national park
- Poaching
- Land development for tourism
- Inbreeding amongst the Javan rhino leading to reduced fertility

Once Funding Is Provided to Manage Our Office is Provided, We will be Doing the Following to Protect Them:
1.Objective #1: Establish an integrated, real-time protection system for Ujung Kulon National Park, the last Javan rhino stronghold
2.Objective #2: Understand the Decreased Breeding of Javan Rhinos
3.Objective #3: Onboard All Stakeholders and Government on Importance of Findings

Population(s) Served
People of Asian descent
Economically disadvantaged people

- The monthly classes are an exclusive opportunity for children to metaphorically journey with world- renowned National Geographic veterinarian, Dr. Gabby Wild, across the globe to learn all about animals and nature.
- Each class features an animal adventure mystery that the children solve together through STEM/ STEAM principles. Children first start with the thrilling animal adventure mystery video produced by Dr. Wild followed by an interactive lecture with her about the topic. Kids then break out into hands- on activity stations where they solve clues as they learn. Together we wrap-up the fun by solving the mystery and watching the finale video.
- Includes local (NY tristate), regional, national, and international partnerships with schools, universities, and environmental groups, museums, other nonprofits, and institutions

Population(s) Served
At-risk youth
Economically disadvantaged people

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to provide both individual animal and herd/group collection medicine for threatened species and offer a public health perspective of zoonotic disease for these animals, the livestock near them, and the people affected by them. Our goal is service at least 10 requested locations/year, create 1 awareness event/year, and provide at least 2 educational lectures to local people affected by the threatened species/year.

1) We have a submission form on our website for organisations to make requests for our veterinary services;
2) Our president provides all veterinary services (as listed on the website) completely free of charge to the requesting orgs;
3) We host artistic (namely fashion shows) to spread awareness in fundraising countries where awareness for exotic species are less known;
4) We host indoor, outdoor, and virtual children's classes;
5) We create educational content (videos, blogs, and books) for children and adults to learn more about the conservation of threatened species;
6) We have a base in Sumatra, Java, and Borneo to provide constant veterinary care, poacher monitoring, and reforestation of destroyed rainforest to provide a home to these unique species found no where else on earth.

1) The president provides complimentary veterinary and public health services, as she's a board certified Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Master of Public Health & has sufficient equipment to perform the needed services;
2) A base is established in Sumatra with camera traps and monitoring equipment already set up, 24/7 eco-guards hired with local policing on staff, 3 tree houses based for surveillance, collaboration with the local elephant hospital and rhino sanctuary;
3) A base in Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia has been established within the national parks government headquarters;
4) A Sumatran rhino sanctuary in Borneo currently houses 1 female rhino with room to conserve additional;
5) A strong social media base for education and awareness has been establish and is currently growing;
5) Educational networks through the president, who is a National Geographic educator, public figure, & author, and board members working in national and international economic and educational posts

1) Awareness events: we have participated or produced 10 fashion shows including, Fashion Fights Poverty (Washington DC), NYFW, LA Style Fashion Week, Vancouver Fashion Week, Art Basel Miami and privately produced shows in the Hamptons, Seattle, Cornell University, and Manhattan;
2) Teaching events: we have hosted over 30 lectures internationally (schools, private clubs, universities, & seminars) regarding the threatened species we are saving;
3) Veterinary Medicine: we have treated over 80 species in 2021-2022 at over 10 different institutions;
4) Sumatra's Conservation:
a) we have placed over 30 camera traps, analysed data to determine average population numbers & locations where Sumatran rhinos, elephants, tigers, Sunda clouded leopard, Malayan tapir, and sunbear reside the most within Way Kambas National Park;
b) established written agreements with the local government to provide this conservation projects;
c) replanted 2 reforestation areas within the national park.
5) Java's Conservation: establishment of a base to survey the last 65 Javan rhinos of Ujung Kulon National Park within local government headquarters.
