Janet from AfriCat UK and other supporters of AfriCat are planning to walk 20 miles at night to raise funds! If you cannot join them than, may be you can wish them well by sponsoring them. This link Walking for Lions will take you to the relevant page
Congratulations to Carey from AfriCat UK for successfully completing the 30km walk along the South Downs in somewhat blustery conditions. Carey said he was pleased to be able to walk for AfriCat and help support the Lion Projects near Etosha. Walking with a team for Save the Rhino he said it was a challenge but it was fun and over the miles was able to discuss many conservation issues with his fellow walkers. Here they are at the start, after lunch on the march and ready for anything!
Funds raised by Janet and Carey are going to help the AfriCat North Projects including the AfriCat Lion Guards, you can sponsor them here.
Linda from Discover the World is busy persuading colleagues to join her in Richmond Park.
Update: Congratulations to all who took part in the Schools Walk, brilliant effort by all concerned and with the Guinness Record achieved as well.
An Audience with Chris Packham
Interviewed by Stephen Moss.
As could be expected people attending the performance of An Audience with Chris Packham came away inspired and entertained. The evenings included discussion on Chris’s book ‘Fingers in the Sparkle Jar’ with the second half being a question and answer session from the floor. Over the three nights topics ranged from Chris’s favourite animal (his dog Scratchy); to where to go bird watching (your local patch) to how to prevent illegal persecution of birds in the UK, Malta and Cyprus and other conservation concerns for example the impact of leaving the EU. Chris' message was clear if you care about the environment then using legal methods and the power of social media make a difference by letting politicians and decisions makers and others aware of your views.
AfriCat Uk was delighted to be able to meet so many people during the evenings. It was lovely to hear account of visits from those who had been to Okonjima the home of the Africat Foundation. As well as selling our goods to raise funds and explaining AfriCat’s work we promoted the Walk 4 Wildlife encouraging people to take part particularly with the schools walk on the 19th May 2017
2016 / 2017
Thanks to your generosity we are well on the way to securing funds to build brick built classrooms for the Onguta School however we do still need a few more bricks! Can you help?
#GivingTuesday on 29th November 2016 http://www.givingtuesday.org.uk will see the formal launch of our campaign to Adopt a Brick to help build the Ongatu School in the rural community on the Western boundary of Etosha National Park. This community under the direction of its Headman has agreed to stop killing the lions that kill the families livestock, a brave and bold move given the impact such losses can have on families.
In return AfriCat is providing a range of support including helping them to adapt their farming practice and is working with them in developing/building better nocturnal kraals to keep their animals safe. Now we want to help improve the education of the community by building them a school and community area. Through education it should be possible to increase their prosperity.
Can you help us? More details can be found on the website at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fund/africatadoptabrick . Watch out for further information.
