Across Africa, the tourism industry has completely collapsed due to COVID-19. For non-profits and conservation organizations that relied heavily on income from tourism, this is having devastating consequences on critical species. Without the resources to operate, they have been forced to close their doors and send rangers home for the foreseeable future.
To date, IAPF’s focus has been 100% on ensuring their mission-critical services are being directed to protecting wildlife and their habitats in the face of mounting uncertainty.
IAPF works day and night behind the scenes to develop innovative ways to deliver their services, extend their limited resources, and cover more territory to fill the gaps left by this industry downturn.
They will continue to keep their rangers employed, but they need to equip them to keep filling the gaps left by industry shutdowns. While much of the world may have stopped due to the pandemic, the number of wild animals being poached has not.
True to IAPF’S mission, they must continue to do all they can to ensure that they are the first and last line of defense for wildlife, and that the IAPF rangers are always there for them when they’re needed the most.
Our world is facing unprecedented times and in the face of these challenges, the International Anti-Poaching Foundation is acting urgently and on a larger scale than ever before.
This is your single most important gift to date – and it is needed to save vulnerable lives and to stop the poaching and trafficking of wildlife during this global emergency.
Your gift will help fund an urgent response across Southern and East Africa. That means, when you give to IAPF’sCOVID-19 Crisis Appeal, your generosity will directly fund their rangers to be there for wildlife when they are needed most.
Due to a collapse of the tourism industry across Africa, many conservation organizations have simply not been able to keep their doors open. Your generous gift will specifically help to equip their rangers to continue patrolling so they can protect vulnerable wildlife under threat throughout this crisis.
Please help IAPF continue to direct their focus where it is needed most right now – by making a donation that will go directly towards on the ground anti-poaching efforts for wildlife being targeted during this pandemic.
Right here. Right Now. You can make a difference. Please Donate TODAY!
