Protecting the Big 5 in South Africa

Project Report | Jul 6, 2021
Safari Anyone?

By Tyrone Bennett | CEO / President

Dear Supporters,

It's been a little while since our last update but don't worry we have not stopped our hard work! I'm, sure everyone is hearing time after time how the global pandemic has caused issues over the past 18 months and this certainly is true when South African tourism came to a stop but a great move for us is that our project become self sustainable and is now fully supported by the local farmers that own the reserve we was working with. 

Over the past few months our project team in South Africa have been hard at work with a number of new initiatives to take our project to the next level and we are now excited to share with you the next developments of this project. We are excited to be working with a number of local small NGOs and passionate community members to use some innovative approaches to help protect the big 5 and wider eco-systems and ensure that land is not lost and these wild animals have the healthy habitats needed. 

Alongside working on these projects to help protect and preserve the wildlife and environments on a day to day basis we are taking an active role within the township communities that are near these wild habitats and educating and engaging young people. We feel that working with young people at an early stage we can help the community grow and access jobs in the future in conservation that in return will help tackle poverty and many other global issues. We also know that through education and empowering these young people they will play a vital role in helping to protect them long term so that one day our grandchildren and their grandchildren will also be able to visit Africa and see all Big 5 on a safari. 

We have one final shot at saving our planet and today is the day we must stand up and make a difference, please help us by sharing our project, the issues and solutions with your friends and family and if you can please help us fundraise and donate to keep this project alive. 

It is GlobalGiving Bonus Day on 14th July where your donations are matched. $100 - $499 donations will be matched 15%, $500 -$999 will be matched at 30% and $1,000 and above are matched with 50%. This is a great opportunity for our project so if you can please save the date!


Thank you,

Tyrone and the Action Change Team
