Our documentary, “Breaking Their Silence: Women on the Frontline of the Poaching War” has affected audiences across America and in Europe to such an extent we’ve been inundated with requests on how to help prevent the loss of our planet’s endangered species.
There are ways large and small to get involved, and not all involve funding projects! You can donate to any of the organizations that are featured in our film directly through our site (100% of your donations go directly to whichever fund you choose) or if you are still unsure you can donate directly to our own non-profit “Over and Above Africa” see below.
Over and Above Africa
An innovative platform, Over and Above Africa connects you to the people, initiatives and organizations on the ground in Africa, effectively tackling the poaching crisis and the human/animal conflict. They work tirelessly to help prevent the extinction of Africa's endangered animals. We know you want to help - we'd like to make it so easy for you, you can't say no! At $5 a month it's less than a Netflix subscription or Latte!
Other Wildlife Organizations
…that we endorse!
(In alphabetical order)
We seek the most effective initiatives and organizations around the world doing important work protecting our wildlife.
We endorse the following organizations and encourage you to support them too. Your contributions are greatly appreciated. YOU make all the difference!
PLEASE…. if you are donating, RESEARCH where your funds go. Legally ALL non-profits must disclose how they distribute your funds. Did you know that one of the world’s leading animal non-profit organizations give LESS than .1% of what they receive to the cause it raises for? Don’t just ask us which ones do this - please research for yourselves how much goes to admin or marketing instead of on the ground needs - we urge you to start flexing this muscle. And rest assured, all of this information is accessible to with just a little effort from responsible donors - when you stop giving, they will start re-allocating where their funding goes! Let’s see that at least 80% goes to the wildlife!
Other Ways You Can Help
Volunteer for the organizations listed above and experience the majesty of Africa for yourselves.
Share their information on your social channels.
Write to your elected officials and ask them to support wildlife conservation efforts.
When voting for candidates, for whichever party, vote for the candidates who include protecting the environment and our wildlife as part of their platforms.
TALK to everyone and anyone about the challenges our wildlife face - let them know that animals they most likely thought were safe, are now on the endangered or critical list (such as giraffe, cheetah, tigers, panthers, polar bears)
Bring up wildlife protection at the family dinner table and discuss ways you can come together as a unit to protect wildlife.
