I have some important news for you:
A group of generous donors have stepped forward and agreed to match every dollar you give this December in support of our campaign to save the Israeli gazelle from extinction.
And here’s why that news is so important:
Because by 2030 the Israeli gazelle will be extinct but if you can take action now you can help stop this from happening.
We think you agree with me that doing nothing is not an option. We can’t stand by and let one of Israel’s most iconic animals disappear.
So please, donate today. Any amount you give will be matched up to $38,000.
The deadline for this match is December 31st. Please do not miss that date!
● If you can give $1,250 our group of donors will match your donation and turn it into $2,500.
Enough to release a gazelle back into the wild!
I know you are someone who deeply cares about the future and health of the Land of Israel.
Over the last 10 years, the gazelle population has been decimated, from a healthy population of 10,000 to just over 2,000 left today. Without urgent action, in another ten years, the Israeli gazelle will no longer be found in the wild.
Chance encounters with this beautiful creature will be a thing of the past.
The devastation to the gazelle population is a symptom of many issues plaguing Israel’s environment and that we need your help to fight against.
● construction in key gazelle habitats
● fragmentation of ecological corridors
● poor disposal of waste which supports an unnaturally large number of jackals, feral dogs, wolves and other large carnivores which hunt gazelles
As bulldozers destroy the gazelle’s natural homes they have no choice but to flee. With no safe escape route they normally only have one exit route – straight into traffic.
In a collision between a gazelle and a moving vehicle there is only one outcome …
In spring there may be a second victim. A fawn. Orphaned and fated to starve to death without its mother’s milk to nourish it.
The other threat to gazelles come from super-sized packs of predators, sustained by scavenging on food not properly thrown away by restaurants and homes.
Even the fleetest footed gazelle cannot evade these packs forever when they pick up the scent.
But by donating today you can give the gazelle a fighting chance.
Your donation will:
● save gazelles habitats by promoting sustainable alternatives to construction projects
● protect ecological corridors so gazelles can roam freely across the country
● encourage proper waste disposal and reduce the number of predators
● Reintroduce gazelles born or raised in captivity back into the wild.
With your support the Israeli gazelle can be saved from extinction.
Donate now to take advantage of our End of Year Matching Fund and double the impact of your gift to save the gazelles.
And remember, our matching fund will turn whatever you give into twice that amount to save the Israeli gazelle from extinction.
The Israeli gazelle is one of Israel’s most recognizable species. The connection between the Holy Land and the Gazelle is so strong, that in the Bible Israel is referred to as “The Land of the Gazelle”.
By donating today you’ll be joining the fight to protect one of Israel’s iconic species. This is a fight we cannot afford to lose.
