The Lion Roars Foundation is privileged to give support to a wide range of local social development and conservation efforts.
The Foundation was created by Lion Roars’ shareholders so they could support causes such as conservation and community development. Most of the funding comes from the shareholders themselves as a means of giving back to initiatives that they feel strongly about. This is driven by a desire to invest in efforts that are trying to turn the clock back 150 years to reverse the negative effect of humans on conservation in Southern Africa’s wild areas.
The Foundation helped create (African Rhino Conservation Centre) ARCC which is to create awareness of Rhino Poaching as well as developing strategies around community awareness.
Lion Roars Foundation helped fund the building of the anti-poaching village. This village houses the APU team and run a 24 hour surveillance and response team for Rhino as well as the protection of the reserve as a whole. The Foundation has provided traps for the neighbouring farming communities to catch predators and release on the AGR rather than shooting them.
Lion Roars Foundation sponsored the Eye in the Sky Gyrocopter for Arial surveillance as well as K9 monitoring on the ground. The successful program has not only protected our rhinos but also made Amakhala Reserve a safe, wild sanctuary for rhinos.
Lion Roars Foundation has provided monitoring collars for the cheetah and leopard program.
