Motse Community and Wildlife Conservancy Campaigns

Motse Community Outreach

Help fund healthcare, education & recreational projects and programmes.

Motse means ‘community’ in Setswana, and the word contains letters from the names of the 2 villages closest to Limpopo-Lipadi – Moletemane and Tsetsebjwe. Representatives from both villages, along with shareholders and management from Limpopo-Lipadi, identify, evaluate and manage projects and programming, to benefit residents of these villages and the surrounding area. Your donation makes projects and programming possible in the fields of healthcare, education and recreation.

Scientific Research

Help fund scientific research

Conservation involves studying, understanding and sometimes managing the complex relationships between the land and the species, particularly endangered species, that make up it’s biodiversity. Research, conducted using rigorous scientific methods, is the foundation for successful conservation, and your donation makes this research possible.
