The Selati Wilderness Foundation (SWF) is taking great strides to conserve the future of the elephants and the biodiversity of Selati. Through the launch of the Giants of Selati Fund in 2020, we were able to raise our fund target of R400,000 to start the elephant immunocontraception vaccinations in an effort to slow the birth rate and preserve the health of the elephants and other species on the reserve.
In September 2021, a team of expert veterinarians, pilots, ecologists, and conservation managers will once again come together to administer the annual booster shots to around 85 female elephants on Selati.
How can you help?
During an intensive one-day operation requiring both aerial and ground teams, and the donated veterinary man-power of Saving the Survivors, we are once again appealing to the public to help us raise the funds for the ground team operation, helicopter time, and the booster shots. The Foundation is aiming to raise the much-needed R160,000 through its crowdfunding campaign on GivenGain or through direct donations on our website http://selatiwf.org/donate-to-... whichever you feel more comfortable donating to.
To become a fundraiser download our toolkit (

We hope that by understanding how important the control of elephant populations is to the biodiversity of a closed reserve, you’ll be encouraged to help us achieve our goal.
