Wildlife is under threat from large-scale poaching even in the great national parks of East Africa. The Investors in Wildlife 2015-16 Appeal is raising money for vital conservation fieldwork and community initiatives - at a time when elephant populations in several countries are under threat from ruthless cross-border gangs of commercial poachers, driven by Asian demand for ivory. .
The CCG Trust, a UK registered charity operating as "Investors In Wildlife” funds conservation fieldwork, anti-poaching, community development and education, animal protection and rehabilitation. In the last couple of years we have run successful internet fund raising and a silent auction, securing nearly £15,000 from many new suporters - thank you to all... Our grant programme focuses on founder managed projects in the field, where we can monitor every dollar spent and see the direct impact on conservation and community involvement.
From 2008 to 2015 we have raised almost £75,000 for two projects in Zambia (see project pages). In the future the Trustees intend to build a portfolio of successful conservation projects across the region, for example in 2015 with new donors we decided to support an additional project, the Mkomazi rhino and elephant sanctuary in Tanzania (run by the George Adamson Wildlife Protection Trust); and then the Ruaha Carnivore Programme in 2016-17 also in Tanzania.
