Today we’re adding not-for-profit Wildlife ACT to the PoachingFacts list of front-line conservation & anti-poaching groups that we believe are worth supporting. The direct-action conservation organization is a great way for university students, interns, and volunteers of all ages (18+) to get hands-on with endangered and at-risk wildlife species projects in Botswana, Malawi, Seychelles islands, and South Africa. Projects in South Africa include wildlife conservation in Cape Town and seven projects located across Zululand, from the ancient sand forests of Tembe National Elephant Park, to the historic Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park where the southern white rhinoceros was saved, and the beaches of iSimangaliso Wetland Park on the Indian Ocean. They also support Panthera projects in South Africa with a focus on monitoring leopard populations.
If you’re not looking to volunteer in the bush, Wildlife ACT and Wildlife FUND have several campaigns listed on GiveNGain that need financial support, giving individuals and businesses an opportunity to make program-focused donations that provide equipment, services, and veterinary care to specific wildlife.
