Save Wild Tigers Partnership is a global initiative set up by Simon Clinton. Simon and his brand marketing agency, The Clinton Partnership, work across the UK and internationally with a portfolio of clients and have played a central role in creating this exciting and crucial global tiger Initiative.
SWT is set up and run as a limited company by guarantee under British law. This structure and legal constitution best enables us to create high profile awareness & fundraising initiatives and events in the UK and internationally, whilst giving us the flexibility to act and take action rapidly. Additionally, this allows us to commercially “trade” - for example, tiger related merchandise and tiger inspired art - ensuring resulting profits feed back into our conservation programmes. This legal structure also ensures (under British law) that no member or director (of SWT) can benefit personally from profits generated by the company. We keep our costs to a minimum, and also rely on volunteers and companies to support us to ensure we maximise our profits. Resulting profits are used to: 1. Fund high impact/mass media awareness campaigns across the UK & internationally to raise awareness levels targeting the public and all related stakeholders & maximising opportunities to convert awareness into action; 2. Help fund targeted tiger conversation projects via SWT & our conservation partners.
moving forward we have ambitious plans to raise significant levels of funds to end illegal trade in tiger parts and products and protect tigers in the wild through a unified, focussed and co-ordinated programme of tiger conservation initiatives.
SWT is run by a small cost effective team, based at our head office in Marlow on Thames in the United Kingdom. This team is supported by a first class team of volunteers and freelance specialists covering the charity, commercial and marketing sectors. Additionally, we work closely with our conservation partners and their specialist conservationist staff; the Born Free Foundation (BFF) , the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) Malaysia.
