“People used to make fences around their villages to protect them from animals, now we make fences around animals to protect them from people”
Habitat loss remains the biggest factor for animal decline. As a safari operator it is imperative for us to protect what makes our living.
There are many conservation areas that need our help to develop and better protect our precious wildlife.
Join us and help us doing that.
African Elephants are native to 37 African countries.
About 415000 elephants remain alive throughout the continent.
About 8% is poached every year.
Population growth in the continent is about 2% in excess every year.
On this program you will help us doing conservation tasks in loco.
Collaring animals will be our main goal, with this task conservation areas will be able to better understand their movement in order to better protect them.
The program includes collaring of 4 elephants and 2 antelopes. Your involvement is essential to make this happen as there is a high cost on such operations, there will be all the material, means of transport and a fully experienced team of vets and field rangers to assure the success of this endeavour.
This is a unique experience that very few get to do. You will be fully involved in helping the conservation team to accomplish their task.
