The AfriCat Foundation is committed to the long-term conservation of Namibia’s Large carnivores. By working with commercial and communal farmers, local communities, conservation conservancies and the youth of Namibia, the AfriCat Foundation is dependent on support to maintain its various programmes.

We are a nonprofit organisation registered in Namibia and everything we do, every project we tackle, every programme we are involved with, is supported by donors and well-wishers like you.

 

SUPPORT ANIMALS IN OUR CARNIVORE CARE CENTRE, OR IN OUR 200KM² RESERVE, WHICH ARE NOW REHABILITATED AND HUNTING THEIR OWN PREY.

HOW ABOUT encouraging your colleagues to donate their spare change and together you all adopt a cheetah, leopard, or lion in Namibia ?

I would like to support (adopt) orphan cheetah(s) for a year (US$300, £200, €240 per cheetah per year).

I would like to support (adopt) wild dog(s) for a year (US$480, £330, €390 per wild dog per year).

I would like to support (adopt) orphan lion(s) at AfriCat North for a year (US$620, £410, €500).

The adoption fee covers the cost of food and basic veterinary care.

 

HOW ABOUT encouraging your colleagues and your employer to adopt a cheetah, lion, or leopard for the company? You can follow their progress on our fb page and create your own in-house news page about the cat which everyone at work is supporting.

 

HOW ABOUT encouraging your colleagues to just collect all their spare change, or whatever they can afford, to donate towards the future of big cats in Namibia? As a group you could ADOPT A SPOT and get involved jointly.

 

THIS IS WHAT DR KATHY ARKWELL AND HER TEAM CAME UP WITH:

"I came home so touched by your efforts and love for the animals that I showed pictures and talked to my staff! I knew it would touch them, too! And they knew I would always approve anything they came up with! You always encourage the best from people if you give them full freedom to create their ideas and they know we appreciate them!
I showed them your cheetah program and the idea of HOW TO ADOPT A SPOT and they saw the silhouette and it just took off from there! 
They wanted to make it feasible for the kids themselves to participate so they made each spot a dollar (US$). I said the office would match whatever the total was and therefore we could double our donation.

To encourage the kids to 'Adopt A Spot' . . . . and this is the key to all our projects . . . . we have something in it for them . . . . So, we put together a basket of animal prizes plus the BIG 4ft tall, cuddly cheetah as the prize for the drawing. For each dollar SPOT they bought, they got to put their name in the drawing for the prize basket! That basket happened to be worth $250! It included:

  • $80 membership to our local zoo;
  • $60 voucher to Splashdown Waterpark;
  • 2 animal beach towels;
  • animal crackers;
  • Saving a Species movie/DVD;
  • Animal Encyclopedia;
  • 2 awesome books about cats
  • and the cuddly animal cheetah!

We were able to raise US$1000 for the cats @ AfriCat in NAMIBIA!

We spent $250 plus the matching amount which ended up to be $400 to get the project awareness and enthusiasm built up! And that is what is necessary . . . . people who are touched by the project and willing to invest initially to reach others for the long term goal!
We hope to grow on it each year. . .

I know your need is great and this is just a drop in the bucket. But, I hope our story inspires others and that is how spreading the word can help!

I personally want to help AfriCat for several reasons:
My personal connection with the Hanssen family both in the US and now Namibia!

To spread the word about your family story, your philosophy of Conservation Through Education and to get more people in the US aware of Okonjima! (see The Hanssen Family, the farm and the lodge history)

 

Lastly, as a Christian I see everything as God’s Creation! When people mess up what He has given us to enjoy and be a part of this earth then I want to do what I can to right those wrongs. The African Cats are some of God’s most magnificent creatures! Beautiful, perfectly designed and majestic! All reflecting His Glory . . . . worthy of our help and consideration and efforts! I know passion is infectious and contagious! So, I will try to help one person, one small office and one family at a time! "
