Why is conservation so important to us at African Impact?

Wildlife in Africa is incredible precious and iconic. We must protect these animals and ensure that they will always have a home in Africa (Save The Rhino, 2018):

  • Within the last 35 years alone, there has been a 85% decline in Africa’s wildlife.
  • In 2017, 1,028 Rhinos poached
  • In just a decade – 7,245 African Rhinos were poached.
  • But – we are working towards making a difference and protecting our wildlife, and our effort are becoming clear.

    There has been a 7% increase in the rate of elephants per year, due to conservation efforts.

  • The has been a 11% in the population of Lions in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa, where conservation is taking place.
  • Not only is wildlife important in a symbolic way to demonstrate Africa’s greatness, but it is also a massive part of African culture, which is so important to maintain in its own way.

    Without out conservation efforts, we risk wildlife becoming endangered. We cannot let this happen. Wildlife adds another dimension to what is already a vibrant and dynamic continent.
