Rhino and elephant poaching has reached epidemic proportions in Afriac, and PAWS is here to try and help. PAWS is a non-profit, non government assisted organization based in the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa. PAWS was formed in November 2011 in order to assist in the raising of funds towards the protection of Africa's wildlife. The main focus of the foundation has been, in recent months, the supply of both funding and equipment i.e. rhinomonitoring equipment as well as anti poaching equipment forvariousreserves in the Eastern Cape – South Africa . Funds raised ( > R130000 ) includes cash/equipmentdonations to Chipempere Rhino Foundation, Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, equipment donated to anti-poaching units at Shamwari, Amakhala, Kariega and Mpongo game reserves. We are currently raising funds for Kariega, for assisting in equipping and training their anti-poaching team, as well as for the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre.
Our aim now is to continue supporting various anti poaching initiatives in the Eastern Cape. Poaching, not only that of rhino, has increased dramatically in recent years and we are committed to ensuring that this scourge is brought under control. We are also keenly aware that there is a desperate need for the creation of awareness in all age groups to the plight of Africa's wildlife.
In addition to our commitment to antipoaching, we would like to emphasize to all the importance of the securing the future of Africa's wildlife, in particular those species identified by CITES as vulnerable, endangered and critical. i.e. African Wild Dog, Cheetah, Rhino, Lion and many bird species. Without these creatures, Africa would certainly be a poorer place to exist.
By raising awareness, and securing the future of Africa's wildlife, we firmly believe that we can make Africa a place where all would like to live and visit.
ONLY WITH THE SUPPORT OF CONCERNED INDIVIDUALS AND INDUSTRY CAN WE MAKE THIS VISION A REALITY. PLEASE HELP US SUPPORT THOSE THAT CANNOT HELP THEMSELVES
