30 days | 3,000km | all-female crew | South Africa | Africa is facing a wildlife crisis and we need your help.

The final touches are being made to an all-women 30-day conservation adventure around South Africa. The Rise of the Matriarch 2022 expedition brings together 10 women from around the world who will travel 3 000km to raise awareness about the contentious human-wildlife conflict and for various conservation projects.

To date, the crew has raised R120 000 of our R150 000 goal. We are R30 000 short so would appreciate your support and donations. If you are able to donate please do – every cent counts.

The projects we are raising money for are the following:
 Wildlife Act, Pongola Black Rhino Range Expansion Project, Zululand Conservation Trust, African Pangolin Working Group, Elephants Alive, The APNR Southern Ground-Hornbill Project.
