Down To The Wire

DOWN TO THE WIRE addresses one of the biggest threats to our precious wildlife. Finding alternative ways to turn what once was so destructive into hope. Snaring is a widespread and serious problem killing millions of animals across the world each year. It is a highly effective method that involves a low cost and effort from the poacher. Wildlife that manage to escape seldom survive without human intervention, and often succumb to their injuries. Dying a slow and painful death.

Anti-poaching units are doing their part by removing these death traps

from our wildlife areas. Once removed, these snares serve no other purpose.

Their quest is to rework these snares into uniquely hand crafted bangles as a symbol of life. Funds raised are made available to a select group of wildlife veterinarians - who have dedicated their lives to making a difference within wildlife conservation, to cover costs of treatment and rehabilitation.

Their Mission

The Down to the Wire project was inspired by the lack of awareness of snaring in general and the effects it has on wildlife. Our aim is to convert these snares into something inspiring, useful and beautiful  that symbolises hope for our wildlife and a way of raising awareness on the critical topic of snaring. Our goal is to educate as many people about the negative impacts snaring has and why it is so undesirable from a conservation perspective.

From the hands of a poacher created to kill, set along an animal path, destined for death. Saved by the compassion of a wise field ranger and turned into a symbol of hope. A piece of wire, now worn by the world#wearthestory  to create and spread awareness for the love of our wildlife. When holding it in your hand, it is just a piece of wire with a loop here and a knot there, but placing it in the hands of a poacher, it becomes deadly.
