Once again we’ve spent most of the year in Africa looking for people who save African wildlife. Thanks to your donations we’ve been able to help many more.
2016 turned out to be a banner year!
Many thanks to folks like you who donated to save African wildlife.
I’m sitting at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro. The perfect majestic setting to feel the grandeur of creation. Clouds cover much of the mountain from view at the moment. Just like in January we couldn’t ‘see’ the number of people saving wildlife we could assist.
