Africa is known for its incredible biodiversity & the picturesque backdrop that house its iconic species. However, with forever increasing human populations & anthropogenic pressures on wildlife populations, numbers continent-wide are dwindling. Africa's species need our protection & local wildlife research organisations are taking big leaps forward in working towards this common goal. Understanding the ecology of species, such as the big 5, to ensure their longevity, is crucial.
Wildlife conservation is the practice of protecting wild plant and animal species and their habitat. Today on earth we are facing a mass extinction of our wildlife. Research tells us we loose one species every hour and this is an alarming number. The main reason is the loss of habitats and poaching, two very serious issues that are not easy to solve. We have to stand up and drive change today as tomorrow will be too late for some of these magnificent animals.
We work with a number of projects locally across South Africa and the famous Kruger. Empowering teams to provide eyes and emergency response to poachers we aim to do everything in our power to keep these animals safe 24/7. As well as our anti poaching teams we educate local children to drive awareness and help protect as well as run many smaller high risk and innovative projects to ensure we protect these animals as much as possible. Due to the high risk of poaching we keep our work confidential
We have a long term plan to ensure we protect and save our big 5 and other wildlife essential to their food chain and existence and one day we will increase numbers to ensure they are not facing extinction.
