The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our trust supports The Mkomazi Game Reserve in Tanzania which is dedicated to the preservation of Aftrican Wildlife.
The trust supports the work of Tony Fitzjohn who is field director of The Mkomazi Game Reserve, a 1500 square mile reserve in Tanzania. At Mkomazi we maintain a 40 square mile Black Rhino Sancuary within the greater Reserve. In addition to the Black Rhino we maintain an active African Wild Dog rehabilitation program. Additionally the Trust supports the work of Tony in the redevelopment of Kora National Park in Kenya. For greater details and more information, visit our website www.wildlifenow.com
Purely going on reputation I feel Tony is one lucky bloke who knew nothing about anything in the bush when George took him on in Kora many years ago, but he gained the trust of George and since then the trust of the Tanzanian Government with all he has achieved at Mkomazi.
His knowledge has grown over the years and his expertise with wildlife has been gained from closer contact with some wild animals than most people will ever get. This is proof enough for me that he and his work with GAAWPT is not only creditable but also visible in the Mkomazi Reserve; where once there was nothing for wildlife except beautiful scenery. Despite not being able to find out what is happening with the re-building of Georges old camp in Kora for many years now, I trust that when ready Tony will open up and announce to the public what he has achieved there too. My only hope is that one day I will be able to see this for myself, having been denied access previously by Park Wardens. Good luck Tony.
