Our Patrons

Dame Judi Dench

“I am delighted to be a patron of the International Wildlife Coalition Trust. I am passionate about wildlife and the work that charities like IWCT are doing across the world to help the plight of animals suffering cruelty.”

Peter Egan

“I am delighted to be a Patron of the International Wildlife Coalition Trust. I have been involved in Animal Welfare for over twenty years and it never ceases to amaze me how cruel humans can be when it comes to the pain inflicted on those, our voiceless companions, with whom we share our wonderful planet. None more so, I am sad to say, than when it comes to the appalling Dog Meat Trade. It is a trade which is frowned upon, in many cases, by the majority in those countries across Asia where it is practised. It is thanks to the great work done by many charities in the region that attention is being brought to this vile trade, and moves are being made to try and stop it altogether. One such charity is IWCT. I’m glad to support it by being a patron.”
