Covid – 19 : Anti-Poching & Conservation Relief Funds
Never before has African conservation interests and the safari way-of-life been threatened on such a grave scale. Tourism is a huge part of the economy and due to the effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic, hundreds of thousands of people are already out of work and facing hard times. We are extremely concerned that with no income or work, the knock-on effect will be that many people will turn to poaching to feed their families.
The lack of safaris in the field this season will further increase the need for anti-poaching patrols to maintain a visible presence in our areas. As a result our anti-poaching work has never been more critical.
We must act fast to survive this crisis. It is imperative that areas remain occupied, poaching to be controlled and the stewardship of local communities maintained during this Pandemic.
We are incredibly grateful to both Conservation Force and Dallas Safari Club Foundation who are currently receiving tax deductible donations on our behalf.
DSC Foundation & Conservation Force are both very generously doing this without charging any administration fees, meaning 100% of funds you donate will go directly to our conservation efforts. All you have to do is select “Robin Hurt Wildlife Foundation” in Tanzania as the specific project for your donation.
As John Jackson of Conservation Farce has said “Hunting operators are the custodians of the largest remaining wild areas in Africa. They hold more than half of all wild habitats in all of Africa and as much as six times more than national park protected areas. Conservation Force is accustomed to partnering with hunting operators to raise operator specific enhancement funding. For example, Robin Hurt Safaris in Tanzania built more than fifty (50) community schools and operated twelve (12) medical facilities, and four (4) full time anti-poaching patrols with contributions from its hunting clientele funnelled through Conservation Force.”
If you are able to offer a little additional support for our community and anti-poaching work, it will really help us to continue our work conserving wildlife and its habitat during these difficult times.
