Project focus for 2019/2020
As Wild As has decided to keep a more specific focus for 2019 and 2020 on 2 projects that we have been involved in for the past few years but that are now important as they gain traction and develop.
The teams in all of the KZN Ezemvelo Game Reserves continue to fight the war against poaching and maintaining a safe habitat for wildlife to live untroubled by human intervention as much as possible. We have been supporting Wild Tomorrow Fund in its role as emergency and supplemental support for equipment and resources necessary for the teams on the ground to do their jobs, despite reducing budgets and increased requirements.
We will be continuing to address needs as they become crucial.
Nyae Nyae Conservancy – Namibia – Community and Carnivore Sustainability
As Wild As supports Walking for Lions in their role in this important project for the future of both indigenous people and animals in the Northern Kalahari, Namibia.
This is a project with a wide scope initiated by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism in 2016, the project is in its 3rd year and the role of As Wild As is to support Walking for Lions in assessing the current Carnivore populations and activity and monitoring the Human/Wildlife collaboration and impact as the environment develops and adapts. It has an important objective to help the San people (Bushmen) develop and become self sustainable in an area that has suffered as a result of climatic conditions (drought), outside influences and domestic farming on the outskirts of the Nyae Nyae Conservancy.
As Wild As intends to assist with the costs of the survey and help where possible provide activity and a future for the San people and the wildlife.
