Africa is famous for its amazing wildlife and we work in the area of wildlife research and monitoring with an aim to aid conservation efforts.The research we conduct is used to aid conservation, effect tourism regulations to benefit wildlife, or provide information for on-going research.
The African Impact Foundation works towards the reducing the negative impact of humans on conservation through:
Environment protection through research & action
Conservation education and inspiration
Species protection through research, action and monitoring
Improving animals lives in sanctuaries and assisting with release programs
It is important that we focus on conservation efforts before animals enter the ‘Threatened’ categories on the IUCN Red List. Mitigating for a problem before it is encountered is more effective than last-minute risky conservation attempts. This is why it is vital that our researchers and interns contribute towards conservation initiatives, expand the scientific knowledge base and supply information for effective management strategies which allows for long-term population permanence.
“Ultimately conservation is about people. If you don’t have sustainable development around these wildlife parks, then the people will have no interest in them, and the parks will not survive.” Nelson Mandela
