What We Do – The Wildlife ACT Fund
We are a team of experienced conservationists, who get our hands dirty, working in the field, to save endangered and threatened species from extinction. We are a small, but efficient team who stretch every cent to make sure it is utilized in meaningful conservation operations. Our main focus is on the critically endangered Black Rhino and Painted Dog populations, as well as the threatened Cheetah and Vulture populations in Southern Africa. We understand, however, the impact of other ecologically important species including Elephant, Lion, Leopard and Hyena on these populations and, therefore, ensure that we do not ignore them in the work that we do.
Our Wildlife Conservation Efforts Focus on the Following:
- Finding and funding the right equipment needed to effectively monitor endangered and threatened species
- Delivering time and expertise to provide adequate management, capture, transport and reintroduction of these animals to new areas
- Implementing anti-poaching measures and technology in the field
- Helping rural communities who live alongside protected wildlife areas to develop a love and respect for nature, provide them with reasons to protect it, and advance economic empowerment.
