At the start of this month I wrote a post addressing the question “What is Wildlife Conservation?” I wanted Nikela Nation to realize the importance and depth of this concept and to realize that we can all be conservationists in our own way.
You can’t answer the question “What is Wildlife Conservation” without being ready to answer the question that is most certain to follow “How can I get involved?”
As you already know wildlife conservation is a broad field that calls upon many talents and efforts to carry out successful campaigns and missions. I have put together a list of 5 things you can do to help efforts in wildlife conservation:
#1 – Tweet with Wildlife Conservation Tweeps
I found this great list of the Top 50 Wildlife and Conservation Twitter Accounts. Though I think they missed one 😉 it is really important that we all continue to support one another even if just by commenting and sharing the tweets that we all work so hard to put together. Getting a re-tweet or hearing from someone in the Nikela Nation via twitter can really lift our spirits and helps to remind us of the support you all have for this great cause.
Don’t forget to check us out on twitter
#2 – Sign Those Online Petitions
Just a few weeks ago we had a petition trying to garner support for a possible sponsership. We were blown away by the support that we all received via that petition. It made us feel great but most importantly it showed everyone else the value and importance of protecting the wildlife in South Africa.
#3- Make Online Donations
What is Wildlife Conservation? Expensive. It is a sad reality that even saving animals takes some funding. Though our brave and courageous rangers in South Africa are willing to risk their own lives to protect rhino, they still have to feed their families, purchase their supplies and put gas in their jeeps. This all takes money. Making donations to organizations like Nikela enables people like the rangers to dedicate their lives, attention and resources towards focusing on doing what they need to do. The truth is, Every Little Bit Helps.

#4 – Volunteer With Your Favorite Organization Online
We love our volunteers. We have volunteers involved in digital marketing, blogging and all other manners of capacities. As more and more non-profits move to the web to spread their message they are discovering a need for volunteers (and some paid positions) to help manage their social media (twitter/facebook/youtube). This can be a great asset to a cause, helping with social media, and even we at Nikela are always looking for volunteers to spread our message.

#5 – Write A Blog About Wildlife Conservation
People are getting online everyday and searching for information about wildlife conservation. Why not supply that information to them? You can write your very own wildlife conservation blog. You can link to us if you like and together we can share and spread the message for the wildlife in South Africa.
What is wildlife conservation? It is many things, but is mostly about people acting, doing, contributing and influencing those around them to fight for the future of animals and the environment.
