Partnership with Wild Tomorrow Fund in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa
Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa has had success in diminishing the number of poaching incidents within the various reserves by implementing strong anti-poaching unit training, community outreach, support, and education, and ethical dehornings. Wild Tomorrow Fund is a non-profit actively involved in all of these aspects of conservation in the region. Their most recent project includes the acquisition of land surrounding the Mun-ya-wana conservancy, Ukuwela and Mfuleni, in hopes of rehabilitating the land to expand the conservancy. In 2019, Reclaimed Earth raised approximately $7,000 and sent seven volunteers for conservation work on Ukuwela and Mfuleni. We look to support their efforts by providing volunteers and funding throughout 2019.
Hoedspruit Elephant Rehabilitation and Development
Hoedspruit Elephant Rehabilitation and Development (HERD) is the first South African dedicated elephant orphanage. HERD's primary goal is to rehabilitate orphaned elephants, to give them a new family, and a second chance of life with another herd. The orphanage lies adjacent to the Jabulani Herd stables on the Kapama Private Game Reserve, which provides a unique adoptive family structure for baby elephants in need.
