We are proudly partnered with the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust to help support their brave endeavors with anti-poaching and building new watering holes in the remote African frontier.

“Brave animal warriors.”

The skilled DSWT frontline rangers patrol the greater Tsavo Conservation area, a crucial wildlife habitat - keeping poaching, snaring, and other crimes against animals at bay. These brave animal warriors regularly confiscate snares and destroy poaching instruments and arrest countless poachers and wildlife offenders.

“If you build it, they will come.”

The Serengeti Foundation has provided financial support to dig two water wells in the remote, dry areas of the parks. Although this is both an expensive and arduous task, watering holes are a lifeline for all the animals that must travel far distances to access them. Crossing paths with poachers who know their migratory patterns and contact with the local communities who share the watering holes for survival does not always result in a happy ending. But, due to the vigilance of the people at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, we are happy to report that the animals are using the new watering holes that the Serengeti Foundation funded, thus reducing further unfortunate incidents with humans.
