The AfriCat Foundation

Founded in 1991, The AfriCat Foundation is committed to the long-term conservation and survival of Namibia’s Large Carnivores in their natural habitat

Our mission is to make a significant contribution to Conservation Through Education.

The Challenge
To break the vicious cycle within farming communities, whereby wildlife is persecuted and destroyed as the first option to solving Human Wildlife Conflict. To encourage, through 'Education', a change of mind-set, from outdated, less successful farming methods, to innovative, sustainable livestock management, which will allow for tolerance and co-existence with so called 'conflict' wildlife such as Lion and Elephant.
