Let’s Save Our Threatened Wildlife Species️

Welcome to 5W Foundation. Together we can save threatened wildlife and habitats. Our Netherlands based non-profit addresses the basic questions of problem solving (who, what, where, when, and why), in the context of supporting front-line conservation work and in support of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the UN Convention on Biodiversity (CBD), and UN Global Goals.

We believe that technology, innovators, manufacturers, material assets and supplies from outside of the traditional conservation and environmental sectors play a pivotal role in protecting and conserving the biodiversity of our planet. Welcome to next generation conservation.

How it works

Wildlife and habitats are under threat. This is how
we can all help.

5W Foundation’s mission as a wildlife conservation non-profit, is to support and conserve threatened species and ecosystems globally, contributing to the protection and preservation of our planet's spectacular biodiversity. We rely entirely on the generosity of our donors to make this work possible. We offer a unique, transparent choice between two clearly distinct donation pathways; a choice we believe every donor should have.

A. Donors can donate “to 5WF, for 5WF”, which are donations used to assist in our running costs and allow us to continue to operate.
B. Donors can donate for a species of their choice, or a group of species, a specific project, or a group of projects, or any combination thereof. On this pathway, the entire, valuable donation amount will be spent on the chosen species or projects; yes, all of it. All donors will be provided with a personalized dashboard, through which they will witness the transparent use of their valuable donation.

Of course, it is always fantastic when a donor takes both paths.
Welcome to next generation conservation.

We built secure and trusted transactions using Hedera Hashgraph Technology

  • Conservation needs new technology and a constantly advancing, evolving approach. 5W Foundation’s infrastructure is built on the next generation of blockchain technology, the secure and trusted Hedera Hashgraph Technology.
  • Hedera Hashgraph is also completely environmentally sustainable and is carbon negative. Combining this with its high-throughput, low fees, and finality in seconds, means Hedera leads the way for the future of public ledgers.
  • Using Hedera technology 5W Foundation can accept and transparently record all donations and financial transactions.
  • We can show all donors to our supported species and projects exactly where that donation is used, on what, and why, and we can track the logistics.
  • We make donating to wildlife conservation a transparent and interactive experience for each, and every, donor.
