WE ONLY FUND DIRECT-ACTION OPERATIONS TO SECURE NATIONAL PARKS AND SAFEGUARD WILDLIFE
THE ELEVENTH HOUR HASGONE
With as little as ten years to extinction for elephants, rhinos and lions, we must accept that current solutions haven’t worked; Africa’s national parks are under attack and the world has failed to respond.
IN DARK DAYS, A RAY OF HOPE
African governments need our support. ‘On the ground’ direct-action operations restore law enforcement and rebuild vital infrastructure, bringing hope to an effort plagued by overspending and poor management. Act now to help us.
THE FORGOTTEN PRIORITY
As our coming short film ‘The Final Shot’ shows, despite billions being donated by a concerned world, Africa’s National Parks remain massively under-resourced danger zones for wildlife. Securing the wildlife left alive is the forgotten priority among the well-funded ivory investigations, conferences and conservation reports.
Direct-action operations make dramatic change, but they’re dangerous and often lead to injury so most organisations avoid them. Our last 9 month operation arrested 75 poachers (securing hefty fines or prison sentences for the majority), destroyed over 10,000 lethal wildlife traps and transformed the ranger force. Direct-Action works.
In some countries, high level diplomacy can multiply operational impact and secure wildlife-saving legal reforms. From drafting in the country’s army to help us restore law and order, to impacting government policy to empower conservationists as Honorary Rangers, our work runs deep.
Rangers are all that stand between the elephant and the poacher, but many charities – who are queued up to train and equip them – fail to impact the core of the issue: poor management and often high levels of corruption. Our model uses local expertise to transform the most troubled national parks.
IT’S TIME TO GET SERIOUS
Insane budgets have become the norm, but a little actually goes a long way in Africa. Direct-action creates dramatic change on common sense budgets. Here’s your rare chance to make a real impact.
Take action! £500 is enough to pay rangers to remove and destroy 100+ deadly poachers’ gin-traps or snares. Each one kills a minimum of 10 animals.
