Latest Press Release
ICORP has been busy and while we wait for certain processes to be completed, I can announce that the Sanctuary for Wildlife and Flora restoration and protection has become a reality in the Banhine National Park area. Our Communities have been identified, where much skills and development will be initiated, To all our ICORP friends and family, the next step is so important regarding the building block and foundation of this project, and that is to keep wildlife from wondering off the demarcated area – through water provision.
Two boreholes must be placed in the Sanctuary and to be fully equipped. We need to raise the necessary funds to provide this natural recourse and so I invite you to invest in water for wildlife. It is the height of the rainy season, yet no pans hold water, the grass is turning to powder and wildlife are dying at this moment. I have seen many droughts in my career as a conservationist, but this is shocking.
Please help ICORP raise $10 000 per borehole, and this includes equipping with a submersible pump, solar panels, electrical box, and pipes. We will be releasing a media statement on the project soon. Conservation and Community engagement are our core functions with additional components of Tourism and Training.
Thank you, Ben Raddatz and Filipe Tovela for your assistance and hard work over the last 2 weeks. #noramhersnoanimals
Securing a 15000-hectare sanctuary
At ICORP we are in the process of securing a 15000-hectare sanctuary in Mozambique to ensure that all wildlife is safe and able to flourish. As an NFP organization, we rely heavily on donations to ensure that our brave Rangers are able to continue with their operations to stop all illegal wildlife activities.
That’s why I am putting my hand up to do a #waxforwildlife (waxing my body – most painful thing in my eyes) and trying to fundraise $1000 (or more) for ICORP. This year I’ll be working with ICORP in South Africa. So please jump aboard and help us to acquire more land and help save Africa’s wildlife by kindly donating
