Conservation

  • Africa is famous for its amazing wildlife and we work in the area of wildlife research and monitoring with an aim to aid conservation efforts.The research we conduct is used to aid conservation, effect tourism regulations to benefit wildlife, or provide information for on-going research.As the great Nelson Mandela once said: “Ultimately conservation is about people. If you don’t have sustainable development around these (wildlife) parks, then the people will have no interest in them, and the parks will not survive”

The Happy Africa Foundation works towards the reducing the negative impact of humans on conservation through:

  • Environment protection through research & action
  • Conservation education and inspiration
  • Species protection through research, action and monitoring
  • Improving animals lives in sanctuaries and assisting with release programs
