What We Do

We are a team of experienced conservationists - rolling up our sleeves and getting our hands dirty working in the field 365 days a year - to save our endangered and threatened wildlife from extinction. We are an efficient team stretching every cent to make sure it is utilized in meaningful and focused conservation work. Our main focus is on endangered species such as Black Rhino, Painted Dogs and Vultures as well as priority species including Cheetah, Elephant, Lion, Leopard and Hyena.

Our Conservation Work Focuses on the Following:

  • Providing specialist priority species monitoring services to protected areas
  • Delivering time and expertise to provide adequate management, capture, transport and reintroduction of endangered animals to new homes
  • Developing and deploying state-of-the-art monitoring and anti-poaching measures and equipment 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.
