The Wilderness Wildlife Trust is delighted to announce the launch of its new website, which features improved functionality, navigation and design.
Along with a fresh new look and feel, the website has been specifically designed to showcase the wide variety of projects the Trust supports. “We aim to provide donors, researchers, environmentalists and all other interested stakeholders a digital platform where they can get relevant and up-to-date information on all the projects, past and present, that we support”, said Russel Friedman of the Wilderness Wildlife Trust.
The Wilderness Wildlife Trust, an independent entity within the Wilderness Group, has supported 157 conservation projects in eight African countries since 2007. These fall into three broad categories: research and conservation, anti-poaching and management, and community empowerment and education, all of which seek solutions to save endangered species and provide education and training for local communities.
Some of its current projects include the Botswana Rhino Reintroduction and Monitoring Project, which involves the translocation of rhino out of South Africa to safe havens in Botswana, as well as a Congo Gorilla Tracking Training Project, which aims to ensure the sustainable conservation of western lowland gorilla through the training of trackers and rangers. The Trust also assists in funding the highly successful Children in the Wilderness programmes which run in seven African countries.
“Through our new website, we hope to continue to drive global awareness of these critical conservation and community projects, all of which play a huge role in ensuring the ongoing protection of Africa’s wildlife and people”, adds Friedman.
