At the end of 2015, one of our partner organizations, The Sindisa Fund, announced that Thokozani Mlambo, one of Wildlife ACT’s Community Conservation Liaisons, was honored with a Conservation Hero Award from the Disney Conservation Fund. The award recognizes local citizens for their outstanding efforts to protect wildlife and wild places and engage communities in conservation. Recipients from around the world were nominated by nonprofit environmental organizations, and each honoree and his or her nominating organization will share a $1,500 award from the Conservation Hero fund.
“Thokozani Mlambo is an extraordinarily motivated endangered species conservationist. As a Community Conservation Liason with Wildlife ACT, he works tirelessly, rarely taking days off, to spread the conservation word through his sprawling community of KwaJobe, which sits on the border of uMkhuze Game Reserve,” said Bruce Lombardo – Director of The Sindisa Fund
The Disney Conservation Fund focuses on protecting wildlife and connecting kids and families with nature. Since 2004, Disney has honored more than 100 Conservation Heroes from around the world for their extraordinary conservation efforts.
