Only those who love nature, will protect it
Nature conservation can not succed due to reglementation and short time projects. Therefore it is important, that our conservation actions at site are going at a longterm hand in han with education and development.
SAVE focuses on some of Africa’s most iconic wildlife species – lions, cheetahs, hyenas, zebra and wildebees. They are all experiencing declining populations. These animals once roamed across nearly the entire African continent. Today, these carnivores can be found in only small pockets of their former ranges – mostly in national parks. Even in protected areas, the animals are not always safe from poaching. Outside protected area boundaries in the animals’ natural habitats they are all at risk of being shot, poisoned, and trapped by humans. SAVE Wildlife Conservation Fund is working to protect and recover these important predators and other African wildlife and their habitats to assure they do not go extinct.
The only way to protect our planet is through long-term and sustainable actions. Therefore, SAVE promotes environmental education of children in its project countries. They often know very little about the wilderness in their home country. Predators are seen as a threat not worth being protected. SAVE supports environmental education projects, so that the children discover the unique treasures of their countries and learn how to conserve them.
