The History of Borneo Wildlife Preservation

Borneo Wildlife Preservation* (BWP) is a 501(c)(3) public charity, founded in 2014 by renowned Animal Trainer & Behaviorist, Katerina Pirelli. Borneo Wildlife Preservation was formerly Pygmy Elephant Foundation.

Borneo Wildlife Preservation was created by Ms. Pirelli’s passion, drive, and commitment to protecting wildlife and her belief in education and awareness for a better future of sustainability for the preservation of our planet. She also is an advocate for plant based diets and strongly advocates the necessity for change to stop animal cruelty, the needless pain and suffering brought to sentient beings of all species, and the environmental impact brought on by Livestock Production and Factory Farming.

She also feels deeply that the future of our planet depends on awareness and conscious daily decisions made by everyone. That’s why Borneo Wildlife Preservation is helping to facilitate international educational programs for teaching children about the importance of sustainability, the rainforest and respect for all animal species. This is particularly needed on the beautiful island of Borneo, where so many animals are in extreme trouble, including the danger of extinction, because of the destruction of their home, the Bornean Rainforest.
