For Wildlife ACT, volunteers and conservation expeditions have been the cornerstone of our funding stream.
We depend on this support to conduct vitally important endangered and priority wildlife species conservation work, including anti-poaching initiatives with our partners across South Africa, including, and not limited to projects in the Drakensberg, Limpopo, Tembe, uMkhuze, Manyoni and Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Parks.
Thankfully, our call for support to our very dedicated and unique group of supporters – even at a time when economies across the world were reeling – was met with a level of energy and dedication beyond our expectations.
During the Covid-19 travel restrictions, all our staff, across the board, took a salary cut to reduce pressure on the organisation. Not one person complained. This reiterated the passion and dedication of our team, and with the significant generosity from our supporters, we were able to keep our footprint!
We believe wholeheartedly in the conservation impact of our work and are heavily reliant on our professional staff who get up whatever the weather or hour (sometimes very early), to carry out this vital work.
The challenge has been holding our collective breath for Wildlife ACT to arrive safely on the other side, keeping all our projects going, which we achieved together with this incredible support system.
Despite the challenges we face with world economies constantly affected by globalised impacts, we have to keep existing projects going, and stay strong and resilient to enable the work required to carry on, especially with increased pressures on our partners.
Our aim is to generate further resources to ensure our work can be carried out effectively (fuel for monitoring sessions, tyres for vehicles, collars to track and keep endangered species safe) and to keep our wonderful staff resourced with equipment and address their needs to keep going.
Help us keep our projects open and functional, and ensure that Wildlife ACT field staff (our conservation heroes) can keep doing their vital work.

WHAT WE DO
Wildlife ACT is an award-winning non-profit organisation working tirelessly since 2008 to help save Africa’s endangered and priority wildlife species from extinction, thereby enabling broad-scale biodiversity conservation.
We achieve this by:
Conducting professional and strategic monitoring and research to enable and inform effective conservation management of wildlife in Africa.
Securing existing protected areas, driving range expansion of African Wildlife, and combating illegal wildlife activities and poaching.
Identifying and developing programmes within surrounding communities to support biodiversity conservation and socioeconomic development.
Each volunteer and supporter makes a world of difference to Wildlife ACT - We couldn’t do this without you.
