Challenge

Africa has over 400 known species of endangered animals. Tracking wildlife and monitoring endangered species is an essential and critical step in their conservation; however many protected areas do not have the funds or capacity to run effective wildlife monitoring projects. Additionally, human-wildlife conflict is on the rise and communities that live around wildlife reserves are often ostracised from conservation areas.

Solution

Wildlife ACT specializes in the safe capture, transportation and reintroduction of endangered species into new areas. Key to the success of this, is the intensive monitoring of these animals, which Wildlife ACT does at no cost to managing authorities. Public support by way of contributing towards the equipment and operational costs of this work is the only way we are able to carry it out. Additionally, this support will help us to engage with the communities surrounding protected areas.

Long-Term Impact

When communities and conservation are at odds with one other, it is often both that lose. To combat this social and conservation challenge, Wildlife ACT works on "both sides of the fence" and works towards re-connecting people with nature for the betterment of these communities and wildlife. This project has the potential to support the endangered species that we are on the brink of losing, and also inspiring a future generation of community leaders, thereby mitigating human-wildlife conflict.
