South Africa has 87% of the world's rhino and they are dying brutal deaths at the hands of poachers every day. If we don't act now, they'll be gone from the wild within 10 years!
Animal Avengers is working to support people on the ground in Africa doing great work to save & protect our animals everyday.
Rhino Pride Foundation
The Rhino Pride Foundation came into being in 2015 after Dr. Jana Pretorius (Founder) realized that there is a great need for the physical protection of the remaining rhinos, thus to prevent poaching before it even happens. Coupled with this, of course, is the need to have measures in place for the rapid & appropriate response to poaching events to ensure that each poached animal gets the necessary veterinary help as soon as possible.
Pit-Track K9 Anti-Poaching Unit
PIT-TRACK is a K-9 conservation unit, & through our extensive K-9 training & operations in the field, the K-9's function in anti-poaching is irreplaceable by man or machine; as we patrol & lie in ambush in some of the most dangerous territories in the world, in pitch darkness.
Made up of highly passionate & dedicated, self-funded operators & team members, Pit-Track boys have willingly decided to put their lives in front of the rhinos' at all costs!
To date, Pit-Track has a 100% success rate!
Friends Of Hwange
Friends Of Hwange are solely responsible for all of the water pans in & around the Main Camp area of Hwange National Park. Without their tireless efforts & love of the animals, there would absolutely be no water during the dry season in this area of the park.
The funding for National Parks now is very low. So without the support of non-profits like Friends Of Hwange, the animals in these parks would be in a much worse, assuming any survive the conditions.
Pilanesberg Wildlife Trust
Given the challenges surrounding the government funding for conservation areas, the North West Parks & Tourism Board established the Pilanesberg Wildlife Trust to fund raise and support conservation projects in and around the park.
AWARE is the only veterinary conservation trust in Zimbabwe run by veterinarians, focusing on the welfare of wildlife and conservation of wildlife habitats.
Tikki Hywood Trust
The Tikki Hywood Trust strives to bring awareness and sound conservation practice to the plight of lesser known and endangered animals globally. We aim to increase awareness of the conservation tool that is legislation and are constantly seeking ways of improving and upholding the laws that protect fauna and flora.
