Give a gift to Africa’s wildlife this festive season

21 Nov 2012 |

Give a gift that matters this Christmas!

Shopping for a good cause is becoming more and more popular. Instead of giving a material gift, why not make a donation to our wildlife Fund in honour of the receiver. We’ll even create a personalised certificate for each donation! With so many threats to our planet and so many causes to support, it can often become overwhelming. That’s why we are making it as easy as possible for you to help us to save South Africa’s endangered species this festive season.

Wildlife ACT runs critically endangered and priority species conservation work on five game reserves in Zululand. We monitor animals such as cheetah, African wild dog, rhino, lion, elephant and leopard. Look out for our ‘Limited Edition’ wildlife shopping  bags in Woolworths. They make great Christmas prezzie carry bags!

Imagine making a difference to Africa’s conservation by donating the equivalent of one beer a month to the Wildlife ACT Fund! Every cent helps — we promise! From the purchasing of monitoring and lifesaving equipment, to the relocation of endangered species and the educating of local communities, every donation makes a huge difference in our fight to save these priority species.

4. Order your copy of Underdogs by Neil Aldridge

Reviewed by BBC Wildlife magazine as “A book with heart”, Underdogs is now available to order as a major 156-page hardbook book. You can see a preview of the book online and order your copy today and know that a donation from your order will be made towards the Wildlife ACT Fund’s African wild dog conservation efforts.


We are all custodians of this beautiful planet that we call home and it is, therefore, up to each and every one of us to ensure that we respect, value and protect it. By working together we can ensure that species such as black rhino, African painted dogs, cheetahs and vultures are conserved for generations to come.

Have a safe and happy festive season!
