MammalMAP  

WHAT IS MAMMALMAP? The aim of MammalMAP is to update the distribution records of all African mammal species. Through collaborations with professional scientists, conservation organisations, wildlife authorities and citizen scientists across Africa, we consolidate all reliable and identifiable evidence (camera trap records, photographs) of current mammal locations into an open-access digital database. The database software automatically generates online distribution maps of all recorded species which are instantly visible and searchable.

 
The information consolidated within MammalMAP will not only yield crucial information for species conservation policies and landscape conservation policies, but provides an excellent platform for educating the public about African mammals and their conservation challenges.
THE WHERE AND HOW: The area of interest for MammalMAP is the whole of Africa. To achieve this we collaborate with scientists, conservation organisations, wildlife authorities and citizen scientists across the continent.

Our methods involve consolidating evidence of mammal occurrence in a given location (camera trap records, photographs and other reliable records) into a digital database hosted by the Animal Demography Unit (ADU) at the University of Cape Town. In time, we will use the records in the database to generate distribution maps for all recorded species, in the same way that the ADU has done for birds, reptiles, frogs and butterflies
 
  Centre for Animal Rehabilitation and Education (CARE) 
 
The Centre for Animal Rehabilitation and Education (CARE), located in Phalaborwa,  South Africa, and established by Rita Miljo in 1989, is a wildlife rehabilitation facility dedicated to the care, welfare, rehabilitation and protection of injured and orphaned indigenous wild animals.The centre specializes in the care of Chacma baboons, actively pursuing their rescue, rehabilitation and release.

The centre currently houses over 400 baboons and is the only facility in Southern Africa that accepts orphaned or abandoned baboons and offers them long term care.
C.A.R.E. has pioneered many firsts in primate care, and its rehabilitation programme has gained respect within scientific and animal behavioral communities. C.A.R.E also has an incredible track record in successfully rehabilitating hand-reared animals and releasing fully formed troops back into the wild.

  The Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre - De Wildt  
 
The Centre was established in South Africa in 1971, in the past known as the De Wildt Cheetah Centre it has recently been changed to The Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre as a tribute to the woman who has devoted her life to the survival of the cheetah species.
Mission: To ensure the long term survival of the Cheetah, African Wild Dog and other wild animals in general.

Today the Centre can look back with satisfaction on a job well done in ensuring the survival of Acinonyx jubatus - the cheetah, successfully breeding the king cheetah in captivity for the first time in the world. While the cheetah breeding project was the base from which Ann launched her conservation ethic, it soon widened to include other endangered animal species, such as the African wild dog, brown hyaena, servals, suni antelope, and riverine rabbits. Many of these projects such as the suni antelope and riverine rabbits once successfully running have been handed over to other institutions to continue with.

The Centre is an NGO and funds generated from tours and the adoption programme are used to subsidise our conservation projects.

  Wildcare Africa  
 
The Wildcare Africa Trust was set up in 1986 by Karen Trendler. Since it's inception the Trust treated more than 70,000 cases at its small centre in Pretoria, with a further 50,000 treated in various locations internationally, and many more have been assisted through telephonic assistance. This advice has been given to game farmers, veterinarians and members of the public.
  
Wildcare Africa unfortunately had to close down for personal reasons. All remaining animals have been seen through the rehabilitation process and have been released or placed in sanctuaries.
The experiences and knowledge gained at Wildcare are being put to good use; founder and director Karen Trendler is now presenting training in all aspects of ex situ wildlife care and handling; assisting in policy and standards development.

  African Raptor Trust  
 
Situated 17 km from Pietermaritzburg on the east coast of South Africa, is the Predatory Bird Centre (PBC) of the African Raptor Trust.The PBC is a dedicated bird of prey facility, specializing in the captive breeding of Southern African raptors.

The facility will assist, were possible, in any bona fide program or avian research that is beneficial to the long term conservation and survival of raptors. The centre also serves as a biological and genetic bank of southern African birds of prey. All birds that are utilized in the breeding programs are either captive bred or non releasable rehab birds.

The centre has been operational for the past 5 years, and has grown from the original quarantine section of just five enclosures, to a facility with 36 enclosures. A further 12 enclosures are presently under construction.On Air Raptor Displays is the African Raptor Trust's education wing and their role is to introduce raptors, in all their magnificence, to the general public. People, both young and old, and from all walks of life come away with an appreciation of South Africa's fantastic diversity of raptor after witnessing the birds first-hand.

Many sick or injured raptors are brought to the On Air raptor display centre simply because of the front-line bird of prey awareness and education work that is undertaken. For this reason On Air acts as a depo for these rescued birds and has a qualified member of staff to stabilize the raptor before sending it immediately to the African Raptor Trust's Raptor Rescue clinic.The African Bird of Prey Sanctuary does public free-flight shows/displays at 10:30 am, Tuesday to Sunday and public holidays, with an additional 3pm show on weekends and public holidays.

  Campaign against Canned Hunting  
 
Campaign Against Canned Hunting Inc, (CACH) was founded by Chris Mercer and Beverley Pervan. After years of campaigning using their own savings, they established a not-for-profit Section 21 company, which is dedicated to getting all trophy hunting banned in South Africa.

BAN TROPHY HUNTING - The mission is to get all trophy hunting banned in South Africa, since all trophy hunting in South Africa is canned to a greater or lesser extent. To that end, The Campaign Against Canned Hunting has put together a comprehensive audio visual presentation which has been shown to thousands of people from all walks of life in S.A.,Kenya and U.K. The presentation, which includes video clips and slides, with narration, is widely published on the Internet.

GET ACTIVE - New regulations and policies are analysed and critical comment is then published to the media and to animal welfare organisations. View critical comment on the new canned hunting regulations. There is also a list of government addresses to whom you can send letters of protest.

ETHOS - For ethical tourists who wish to ensure their tourist dollars do not fall into the hands of persons involved in the hunting industry, we offer a certification service whereby eco-tourism resorts are audited to ensure that there is no direct or indirect involvement with hunting. Learn more about ETHOS. Or, tell us about resorts involved in animal abuse.

WILDLIFE SANCTUARY - The Campaign Against Canned Hunting is raising funds to purchase land to establish a Wildlife Sanctuary and Chris and Bev are prepared to put in Rand for Rand with donors. Find out more about the sanctuary.

PETITION - Help sign the online petition that has been created to solicit help from the caring public world wide. In due course, this will be printed out and presented to government.

  Global White Lion Protection Trust (WLT)  
 
The critically endangered White Lion has been naturally birthed in one place only on earth - the Timbavati region of South Africa.

Its conservation value is paralleled only by its cultural value to indigenous communities of the region as a national symbol of unity, peace and hope. Many countries honour and protect 'sacred animals' by law: the 'Spirit Bear' of Canada, the 'Brahman Cattle' of India and the 'White Elephant' of Burma. Whilst the White Lion of the South Africa is not yet protected by law, concerted conservation efforts are underway to protect this rare national treasure on behalf of all South Africans - and indeed the world.

Established in 2002 by world renowned author and conservationist, Linda Tucker, the Global White Lion Protection Trust (WLT) is a South African based non-profit conservation and community development organisation.

Operating in the greater Timbavati bush region, the WLT is responsible for protecting the White Lions and developing the related cultural values that hold them sacred.
The WLT is accountable to its Trustees and a panel of global advisors with representatives from the South African Government, local and international conservation groupings and the South African business sector.

The WLT campaigns for the protection of the critically endangered White Lion in its endemic wild habitat in the Timbavati at both provincial and national levels and is pursuing National - and indeed World - Heritage status for the White Lion site in the region.

  Addo Elephant National Park  
 
Deep within the shadows of the dense valley bushveld of the Sundays River region of the Eastern Cape lies the Addo Elephant National Park. Here, the evenings are punctuated by the strident howl of the black-backed jackal, and the francolin's call heralds each new dawn. Safe from relentless persecution in the past, the grey leviathans of the bush now roam in peace. The park was proclaimed in 1931, when only eleven elephants remained in the area – today this finely tuned ecosystem is sanctuary to over 200 elephants, Cape buffalo, a variety of antelope species, as well as the unique flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo.

But the Addo story has only just begun. Plans to expand the  164 000 ha Addo National Elephant Park into a 360 000 ha mega-park are moving forward at an exciting pace. This expansion is transforming Addo into the ultimate tourism destination. Some of its unique features already include: Unrivalled natural diversity, with five of South Africa's seven major vegetation zones (biomes).

The Big 7 (Elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo, leopard, whales and great white sharks) in their natural habitat. Rich heritage of archaeological and historical sites. A wide variety of accommodation and activity options. In addition, plans include the proposed proclamation of a 120 000 ha (296 500 acre) marine reserve that includes islands that are home to the world's largest breeding populations of Cape gannets and second largest breeding population of African penguins.
