In this day and age, all great causes need great support… it is a fact that funds are needed to achieve goals. AfriCat is no different! Donations are what keep our programmes, our community outreach and research initiatives going, especially those which are of an ‘ongoing’ nature.
We are always thinking of new ways to raise funds for our projects. Keep an eye out for updates on this page and latest fundraiser ideas where you could help make a difference and get involved.
Sincere thanks to the ALL who supported the AfriCat Lion Lights crowd-funding effort during the second half of 2017.

Brown Hyaena Research
Last night we collared brown hyaena OHB07 in the northern part of the Okonjima Nature Reserve. The team were especially pleased to capture this male as we currently have no information regarding the spatial movements of the clan living in the far north of the reserve.

CYMOT is a proud supporter of the AfriCat Foundation, which focuses on long term conservation of Namibia’s large carnivores.
“Our environment and the animals are one of Namibia’s greatest assets, hence it is crucial for us at CYMOT to be part in helping to preserve this valuable asset.
The equipment that was supplied to AfriCat to the value over N$ 100 000 will hopefully assist them in continuing their great work.”
