Grant Announcement: Wildlife ACT Fund
Empowers Africa is proud to announce a grant to Wildlife ACT Fund’s painted wolf (wild dog) conservation program. Wildlife ACT monitors a third of the wild dog population in South Africa and their work has and continues to protect one of the world’s most endangered carnivores. Their program is particularly focused on the wildlife tracking and monitoring of this species. Wildlife ACT coordinates their efforts by working alongside the KwaZulu-Natal Wild Dog Advisory Group.
We are very proud to work with Wildlife ACT as they actively advance conservation by initiating, implementing and managing projects at no cost to wildlife reserves that often do not have the means to do so themselves. While they have programs in Botswana, Malawi and the Seychelles, they are currently focused on Zululand in South Africa, an area with one of the most diverse and productive wild lands on the planet. To fund their monitoring projects, Wildlife ACT runs some of Africa’s most respected wildlife volunteer programs. Volunteers who join in important conservation work benefit from a wildlife experience while contributing to conservation through their time, efforts and funds. Conservation volunteers assist staff in their daily tracking and monitoring of endangered wildlife such as the African wild dog, cheetah, vultures, turtles and black rhino, as well as priority species such as elephant, lion and leopard.
Empowers Africa has partnered with Wildlife ACT in order to provide a cost-effective solution to fundraising in the United States by acting as their fiscal sponsor. As an established 501(c)(3), we are able to accept donations from U.S. donors and grant these funds directly to their projects.
