In recent years, Action for the Wild has donated over £650,000 to conservation projects around the world. Some of these projects include an elephant orphanage, Free the Bears Foundation, Orangutan Foundation and Wildlife Vets International. Funds have also helped with the set up and continued running of the charity’s UmPhafa Nature Reserve in South Africa.
Now donating to Colchester Zoo’s charity Action for the Wild couldn’t be easier thanks to a new fund raising campaign which has just been launched and now a new text campaign will help to make a difference to endangered species!
Anyone with a mobile can help by sending a text stating “AFTW01” and then the amount you wish to donate such as £1 / £2 / £5 or any other amount to 70070. There is no charge to send the text and proceeds go directly to the Action for the Wild charity.
£10 could pay for Pepper Spray which is a non-lethal enforcement tool for field rangers protecting rhinos in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park.
£25 will help cover the wages of a game guard on the UmPhafa reserve for half a week, helping to protect the wildlife.
£50 will buy daily food (coconuts, sweet potato, melons) for released orangutans in the Lamandau River Wildlife Reserve
£100 will pay for a one day training course on artificial incubation for the Gyps Vulture Project
Action for the Wild cannot raise the funds for projects such as these alone. Text your donation to Action for the Wild today, and you can help support the future for animals in the wild.
