As we are only too aware, the state of our natural world and wildlife is under huge attack. Rhino’s are currently the number one target of poachers across Africa and if the killings go on at the current rate they are, they will be extinct within decades. So what can you and I do to help the situation and ensure that our grandkids are able to see the wildlife of Africa in their natural environment??
Fortunately we don’t have to travel too far to get involved! We can help even while sitting at our computers browsing Facebook!
Wild Live is a wildlife conservation project which allows online participation through social media. Funds for this project come entirely through subscriptions to their Facebook app and other donations. The Wild Live app gives you access to exclusive content and allows you to be a part of the conservation journey – from buying the land through to stocking it with game and starting the breeding programs. There are regular updates on the farm and the animals, with informative videos about everything from bush survival to fighting veld fires!
Wild Live is a South African environmental organisation that is creating a wildlife conservation farm that is very active in the surrounding communities and 20% of the income generated goes to the Wild Live Charitable Trust.
So what do you have to do to get involved? Visit the Facebook app and click the subscribe button to donate. The longer you subscribe for, the less you pay. Wouldn’t it be a great educational opportunity to subscribe on behalf of your child, your family or your child’s school class and share the Wild Live journey with them! You can learn all about what it takes to be working on a real game farm and this will bring the animals of Africa right to them! For now I think this is a far easier option at this stage than driving the thousands of km’s from Cape Town to the Kruger although I am so keen to share the real life “bush” experience with my kids one day!
Should you kids get really involved and interested they are encouraged to ask questions about the animals and the project and the team will post video responses to them!
Visit Wild Live Africa’s Facebook page to find out how you can get involved and sign up to be part of the change. A small contribution can make a huge difference!
