What is one of the key fundamentals needed to see successful conservation of Africa’s wildlife?
One united front.
Which is why, on 29 June 2017, three renowned wildlife conservation non-profits are coming together for a special night of fundraising and conservation awareness.
Another fundamental of conservation is finance. Conservation cannot happen without it sadly… although we also wish it were far simpler. In fact, huge sums are sorely required wherever wildlife needs safeguarding and preserving; whether it’s purchasing land to protect habitat, supplying materials for farmers to build kraals (bomas) to protect their livestock from predators, or employing or providing equipment to anti-poaching rangers to protect our heritage – it all requires funding to ensure it’s done in the most fair, reasonable and responsible manner that has the best interests of wildlife as its core objective.
Pit-Track K9 Conservation Unit
Pit-Track is a registered NPC (Non-Profit Company). We are a specialised K-9 conservation and anti-poaching unit made up of highly skilled, passionate and dedicated operators, members, and corporate affiliates, who have devoted our lives to the preservation of all water, flora, fauna and animals with prioritization to endangered species.
Captured In Africa Foundation
Established by Johannesburg based conservationist Drew Abrahamson, Captured In Africa Foundation (NPO) aims to mitigate and safeguard lions and other wildlife in the wild & captive situations. The organisation carries out various rescues & relocations of at risk big cats, instigates projects and initiatives, along with key partnering with conservation organisations and professionals to ensure the survival of wildlife.
Saving The Survivors
Saving the Survivors (with lead Vets Dr Johan Marais and Dr Zoe Glyphis) was started in 2012 to treat and care for rhino that have fallen victim to poaching or traumatic incidents. This includes rhino that have been wounded, rhino where the horn has been hacked off, as well as victims of snaring and other trauma. Notable treatments and care of poaching victims include the world famous HOPE, along with many many others in need of the care of saving the Survivors.
