Join us for an online talk about Resilience, Leadership and Growth on 2 July 2020 @ 17.00 SAT.
Alice Bromage is a former UK Army officer and now acts as a consultant to businesses on resilience, leadership and growth. For the last four years she has worked, sometimes for months at a time, with Africa's only all-female anti-poaching unit, the Black Mambas, in the Greater Kruger park, South Africa.
In this conversation Alice will share her story of working with the Black Mambas, the issues that have faced them and the extraordinary success they have had in this dangerous world - aided by the fact they are unarmed female guards up against heavily armed, often desperate male poaching groups.
About the Wildlife Ranger Challenge:
COVID-19 has brought tourism revenue to a halt across Africa, threatening the important work and livelihoods of the rangers who protect iconic African wildlife such as elephants, pangolins, rhinos, lions, and more. Ranger teams are now uniting around the Wildlife Ranger Challenge, a running race with one goal: to raise money to support thousands of their fellow rangers. Now is the time to go the extra mile—it’s time to race to support our rangers. Every dollar donated will be matched by the Scheinberg Relief Fund, doubling your generous contribution.
Your contribution will help support 29 rangers and an estimated 145 livelihoods in and around Olifants West in South Africa.
DONATE HERE: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/olifants-west
How your donation will help:
Additional funding for rangers would assist in the following ways where possible:
- Allowances for the basic salaries for Sergeants, Drivers, Media Liaisons, First Aiders, and K9 handlers.
- Fuel expenses for core duties such as patrols and deployment within the reserve, or
- Patrol vehicle maintenance expenses
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR RANGER TEAM!
NO ONE, NOWHERE, AT NO TIME, SHOULD GO HUNGRY...
COVID-19 along with the Global Lockdown has deprived so many local people of their minimum income making them unable to provide for their families.
Olifants West Nature Reserve, with the help of The Black Mamba ALL-WOMEN Anti-Poaching Unit, is starting an initiative to deliver food parcels to local families in our rural communities who are in despErate need! The Black Mambas come from within these communities and are uniquely positioned to ensure the food parcels are delivered directly to families in need.
Your help will mean:
- Communities will not starve
- Wildlife poaching will not increase
- Human dignity will be maintained as people will not need to look for food in dustbins
- Violence and criminality will not increase
Our nutritionally balanced food parcel will feed a family of 4 for a week!
Our aim is to raise R 70.000 which will feed 100 families of 4 for 2 weeks!
Each food parcel costs EUR 18 or $20 but any donation will be helpful!
