Gallmann Conservancy Continues Building Firebreaks

The dry season is coming, and with it comes a greater risk of fires caused by poachers. In the scrubland, the incidence of wildfires has the potential to burn thousands of acres of rich, diverse habitat for wildlife. The Gallmann Conservancy is constantly building firebreaks to stem the tide of these potentially devastating fires. Building the firebreaks is time consuming and expensive, but it is absolutely crucial if the conservancy is to remain a refuge for some of the most threatened of wildlife. The firebreaks that the Gallmann Conservancy was able to build in 2013 with donations from you and others prevented poachers from using arson as a tactic to poach elephants for their ivory.

Aside from reducing the destructiveness of fires and poachers, creating the firebreaks really helps out the people and the families of the people who build them. Getting members of the community to create the firebreaks not only provides jobs, they provide firewood and slow the rate of deforestation.

We thank you all for your support throughout the year!
