Who We Choose To Support
- The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International (originally the Digit Fucharity for the protection of endangered mountain gorillas. The Digit Fund was created by Dr. Dian Fossey in 1978 for the sole purpose of financing her anti-poaching patrols and preventing further poaching of the mountain gorillas. Fossey studied at her Karisoke Research Center in the Virunga Volcanoes of Rwanda. The non-profit fund was named in memory of Fossey's favourite gorilla, Digit, who was decapitated by poachers for the offer of US$20 by a Hutu merchant who specialized in selling gorilla heads as trophies and gorilla hands as ashtrays to tourists. Dian is sadly no longer with us as she was murdered in 1985, her fund lives on in her name and carries on doing so much good work.
- JGI works to protect chimpanzees and other primates by supporting sanctuaries, law enforcement efforts to reduce illegal trafficking and public education to protect endangered species in the wild. JGI achieves this through community-centered health projects, improvements to water supplies and programs designed to keep girls in school. JGI does this through improved agricultural practices, community-managed microcredit programs, and sustainable production techniques that increase incomes while protecting forests and watersheds.
- MMF is an American registered foundation with it's main marine megafauna research center located in Mozambique. MMF was created in 2009 to research, protect and conserve the large populations of marine megafauna found along the Mozambican coastline and surrounding waters. As well as research into the biology, ecology and threats to these flagship species, MMF is also involved in several local projects working with communities to encourage more ocean awareness, sustainable and alternative fishing practices and with the government to help establish legal protection for the species they are researching. Nemos Pequenos (Little Nemos) is MMF’s flagship education program which aims to create a new generation of ocean guardians who have a compassionate understanding of their marine environment and are empowered to act towards its sustainable management and protection.
The African Parks Network is an international non-governmental organization which seeks to address environmental conservation issues in Africa, especially the decline of many of Africa's national parks.
