Wilderness Foundation Africa works from its base in South Africa to protect and sustain wildlife and wilderness through integrated conservation and education programmes. Whether it is direct action anti-poaching in the field, large landscape wilderness management, or developing rising young leaders from disadvantaged communities for a career in conservation, the Wilderness Foundation has over 45 years of results.
Wilderness Foundation Africa, in partnership with SOUL Music & Performing Arts Academy will be hosting a Seminar entitled “Conservation and Business: Creating a Legacy” in order to bring awareness about the rhino poaching crisis to business men and women of Ho Chi Minh City. The business community will hear from experts working in the field in South Africa, as well as from Vietnamese representatives in business, design and traditional medicine on how conservation and business need to work together to create a legacy for us all.
Remembering Wildlife is the collective name for the series of books created by British wildlife photographer Margot Raggett, who was prompted to take action after seeing a poached elephant in Northern Kenya in 2014. She began asking fellow wildlife photographers if they would contribute to a fundraising book.
Earlier this year, Philip Schofield, an ITV television presenter most recognized for presenting “This Morning”, which he has co-hosted since 2002, went on a South African adventure where he was brought to tears whilst filming the final instalment of his South African wildlife series.
Part of the personal growth process is achieved through a mentorship programme, which aims to support and guide the youth to fulfill their potential and meet their goals.
A mentor is a person who our students can rely on and who is not associated with other adults in authority with whom they may have had difficult relationships. Mentors are a positive adult role model, and the mentorship process involves coaching, encouraging, constructively criticising, explaining, listening and guiding and sometimes simply being there for the young person.
