Firebreaks for Gallmann Africa Conservancy Built

Dear Friends, 

All of us at Creating Hope International (CHI) want to thank our donors for supporting the Gallmann Africa Conservancy in its project to build 300km of firebreaks.  Though they weren’t able to build all 300km of these firebreaks, they were able to achieve about half of their goal. The construction of these barriers saved the conservancy from being destroyed by wildfire and preserved the habitat of the many animals who call the conservancy home.

The preserve still faces many challenges, but because of the support of our donors through Global Giving the firebreaks that were built have lessened the threat of wildfires. The folks at the Gallmann Africa Conservancy are really thankful your help and will continue to keep this beautiful and pristine land a refuge for the majestic, but threatened, African wildlife living within its borders.

Again, we want to thank you for your support and your concern for the wildlife of the conservancy. Below are a few pictures of the firebreaks your donations helped to build!
