BBC Wildlife Fund

"The idea for the BBC Wildlife Fund arose in 2007 when the BBC broadcast a season of films called Saving Planet Earth. The films were made by the world renowned BBC Natural History Unit which happened to celebrate its 50th anniversary in the same year...

"To help the Saving Planet Earth audience support these conservation efforts, the BBC set up the BBC Wildlife Fund in May 2007. It helps raise money for both the work featured in the films shown in the Saving Planet Earth season, and for other projects helping wildlife under threat in the UK and around the world.

"Between then and March 31st 2008, the Fund raised a magnificent £1.8 million." [1]
