Due to some wild weather headed towards the northern NSW coastline, locals are battening down the hatches so we’ve decide to postpone our Africa night at the Bangalow Heritage Centre to March. New date to be advised shortly. Thanks to everyone who booked and apologies for this, but we hope you can make it on the new date. Stand by for more details!
Thanks to everyone who came along to last week’s event in Perth to raise funds for the African Wildlife Conservation Trust, specifically for the African wild dog research and conservation project in Save Valley Conservancy, Zimbabwe. It was another fantastic night with lots of fellow lovers of Africa, talking about both elephants and African wild dogs and their plight in the wild, and it was great to meet some old friends and meet new ones with a similar passion. Best of all, the night raised enough for almost 4 motorbikes for the African wild dog project in Zimbabwe – a great result! Big thanks especially to the fantastic team at Painted Dog Conservation Inc. led by the tireless John and Angela Lemon who invited me over. It’s local community efforts driven by passionate individuals like this that keep important conservation work going on the ground in Africa. A massive salute to them and those who support them.
