Wildlife ACT's main focus is on the critically endangered Black Rhino and African Painted Dog, as well as the threatened Cheetah and Vulture populations in Southern Africa but they also monitor the impact of other ecologically important species including Elephant, Lion, Leopard and Hyena on these populations. They:
Find and fund the right equipment needed to effectively monitor endangered and threatened species
Deliver time and expertise to provide adequate management, capture, transport and reintroduction of these animals to new areas
Implement anti-poaching measures and technology in the field
Help rural communities who live alongside protected wildlife areas to develop a love and respect for nature, provide them with reasons to protect it, and advance economic empowerment.
Instead of sending Christmas Cards I'm donating £1 for every person who would usually receive a card and sending a newletter by email! Thanks to the money raised so far I was lucky enough to see an anti-snare collar fitted in 2015 to a painted dog (Nile) in one of the reserves that I volunteered in. In November 2017 I returned to Mkhuze where a collar was fitted to another dog (Heidi). Great to see the donations become a reality and the difference they can make.
