Weʼre raising £1,500 to donate to Wildlife Act - focused conservation group committed to the protection of a number of endangered species.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
A number of African wildlife species are endangered or face extinction due to exploitation and poaching. Rhino and elephant populations are increasingly threatened as the market for horns and tusks continues to grow. With very little government funding dedicated to conservation and protection efforts, many of the organisations across Africa rely on public funding and volunteers to help combat and control these issues.
Though I am now based in London, the bush has been a long love of mine and I care hugely for our African wildlife. In February, I'll be embarking on a volunteering week with Wildlife Act to assist the group with their conservation and protection projects.
As we approach the season of giving, please consider a donation of any amount to this amazing organisation. Your donation goes a long way to protecting the future of these animals – proceeds go to a number of necessary resources: fuel and vehicle maintenance, research facilities, tracking equipment, radio collars, telemetry sets, and basic salaries for the hardworking permanent team who work tirelessly in the interest of protecting our endangered wildlife.
