Wildlife ACT actively advances conservation by initiating, implementing and managing projects at no cost to wildlife reserves that do not have the means to do so themselves.

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 a wildlife volunteer program. 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 monitors in their daily tracking and monitoring of endangered wildlife such as the African wild dog, cheetah, 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 the funds directly to their projects.

Wildlife ACT focuses its work across these key areas:

  • Delivering time and expertise to provide adequate management, capture, transport and reintroduction of endangered animals to new homes.
  • Developing and deploying state-of-the-art monitoring and anti-poaching measures and equipment in the field.
  • Helping rural communities who live alongside protected wildlife areas to develop a love and respect for nature by providing them with reasons to protect it and advancing economic empowerment.

Human Empowerment Programs

All too often, communities that live around wildlife reserves are ostracized from conservation areas. Also, when rural communities are not helped to sustain themselves, or given adequate conservation education, we cannot expect these communities to do anything but look to protected areas for resources as a means of survival.

To help address these issues, Wildlife ACT has initiated Community Conservation Projects around four game reserves in Zululand where endangered species need protection. This work involves in-school conservation lessons, a Kid’s Bush Camp program, adult conservation seminars, Wildlife Ambassador Clubs and community game drives, which much of it focused around Rhino Conservation.
