- Describe in detail what your Organisation does:
We expose wildlife crime, working together with the governmental institutions to do so. We are trying, (unsuccessfully) to get to our ultimate aims, and that is working together with the rural poverty stricken, disenfranchised people, to be able to teach, and develop the means in which these communities are able to become custodians of wildlife, to protect said wildlife, and for them to be able to access the vast tourism potential available to them.
