Our first steps are being made in Tembe Elephant Park it is a park in need of support and an incredible success story being community owned and a model of the future. With plans for the Trans-frontier reserves in motion – it is a park with a bright future. We are on-the-ground support park management and local communities with issues that directly and indirectly impact lion conservation. Our recent projects include role out and testing of base stations using cutting edge technology for remote tracking of key species, anti-poaching initiatives (lion and rhino).

Wild Tomorrow Fund

Formed in November 2014 to raise funding and awareness for conservation projects. Wild Tomorrow Fund helps organisations in KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, it is home to more rhino, elephant and wild dogs than any where else on the planet. This also makes it one of the most lucrative hunting grounds for poachers.

Wild Tomorrow Fund raises funds for organizations on the ground in this area who are fighting the war. They advise us on what resources they need to be successful.

The illegal wildlife trade is now the fourth most lucrative transnational crime after drugs, arms and human trafficking.This is really bad news for the animals. Poachers are equipped with ever more sophisticated weaponry, as they become part of the criminal organizations that make vast profits from the practice. The animals are defenceless in the face of military grade weapons. Estimates suggest at the current rate of poaching rhinos will be extinct by 2018 and elephants by 2020.
