As a result of the difficult times, people have been getting desperate and consequently poaching in Bwindi National Park has been on the rise. As a company we wanted to try and do something about this, so we approached reformed poaching groups to help us get in contact with poachers and offer them food supplies in exchange for their weapons used for poaching (mostly spears and snare wire).
15 people handed in their weapons to be destroyed and we supplied them with a months supply of food for their families. For our efforts, we have recieved thanks from the Ugandan WIldlife Authority.
As ever, we also handed out supplies to those who need it most. This time we reached 55 families in total with food, soap and educating them about safe practices during the pandemic. These areas don't have electricity and the only access to information is via word of mouth.
The communities were again full of gratitude for the much needed supplies and I would like to pass that straight on to all our donors.
Take a look at our photos below and if this project is something you would like to be involved with then get in touch to find out how you can donate.
Stay safe and all the best :)
