We have proudly supplied the only all female APU, the South African Black Mambas with financial support for their operation costs for the remainder of 2015. Thanks to your donations, a total of $2,435 usd has been given toward their day to day expenses; food, uniforms, supplies, etc.
These ladies have made huge strides in their communities, spending 21 days a month patrolling the reserve, teaching locals about wilderness preservation, and keeping an eye out for poaching activities.
“Each [Mamba] has a story, a dream and a vision for the future, each has a family to support, a community to educate. Funds are scarce, yet they are passionate and determined. For some, they are the only breadwinners, feeding their families on little wages. For others this is a hopeful step towards furthering their careers. For all of them, the love for nature and its conservation runs deep. Their ethos is to protect this heritage of wildlife.” -Julia Gunther, photographer
