EXTINCTION MEANS FOREVER
We are an anti-poaching initiative on the front-lines of the fight to save some of Africa's most endangered wildlife through the funding of private preserves, employment and training of local anti-poaching units, and running on-the-ground conservation through education courses. We believe if you're on planet Earth, you have a role to play in combatting this crisis.
We’re currently looking to raise 2.5 million for a conservation/community uplifting project that will protect over 150,000 + acres of pristine wilderness, give 80 + jobs to the indigenous people, and invest money annually into community projects. The Kyalala Conservancy is located in the heart of the most poached region in the country of Zambia. There is no security for this wildlife paradise so it is currently wide-open to poachers. Due to our close relations with the local Chiefdom, they have offered us this incredible opportunity but it could not have come to us in a more difficult time to raise the funds. COVID19 has crippled our fundraising efforts for this year. It’s a race against time to begin this project this year before the wet season begins. To begin, we are looking for $240,000 that will afford us all the equipment we need to at least secure the area and to build temporary housing for us to be able to work. Once completed, this reserve will only be used for educational purposes through our Dung Beetle Bush School which focuses solely on conservation through education. This initiative will serve as a model for future projects for ourselves and other organizations. It is our goal to create thriving communities parallel to the protection and education of our world’s most valuable treasure.
THE WAY WE SEE IT: WE CAN EITHER COME TOGETHER AND PROTECT THEM, OR DO NOTHING, AND WATCH THEM DISAPPEAR FOREVER.
