Protecting the Big 5 in South Africa

Introduction 

Research tells us we lose one species every hour, 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.

Report 

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. We still need to raise $3200 to reach our target.

Introduction 

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. 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.

Report 

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. Our project uses sniffer dogs to track poachers which is a very effective way to prevent poaching and it costs $15 to feed one dog for a month.

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.

We have been funding the food for the dogs who patrol the reserve for anti poaching initiatives, as well as funding 6 children from the local township on their first ever visit to the kruger national park which is costing $50.

This month we will be conducting a mentorship training program with 9 senior anti poaching veterans so that they can provide support to the junior wildlife investigators. This is to support the development of knowledge and skills within the department of environment.
