HESC Thank you – September 2017
Our heartfelt gratitude to each and everyone that has made a contribution towards the centre during the month of August.
Woolly Kisses donated beautiful hand-made blankets for the animals at the centre.
We, together with Wildlife Conservation Trust (WCT) have partnered with the Kingsley Holgate Foundation and Land Rover SA for the Elephant Art project. The purpose of this project, similar to the Rhino Art project, is to combine children’s voices against elephant poaching. The focus is to gather the largest number of heartfelt messages ever recorded as a call-to-action against elephant poaching and all forms of wildlife crime. Zero Plus Printers have generously sponsored the Elephant Art colouring sheets.
The Wildlife Conservation Trust
On the 27th of September we hosted the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos at the centre. Lumukisa Preparatory School in Acornhoek was one of the schools that took part in the march and this was made possible by the Wildlife Conservation Trust (WCT).
Afgri donated bags of dog food for our anti-poaching canines.
In an effort to raise funds and awareness for the plight of the rhino, Joanne Devenish recently completed the PCT trail (2,650 miles). What an amazing achievement! Thank you to Joanne for her amazing effort and determination.
Thank you also o everyone who supported the initiative through pledges and donations.
