MARC MCDONALD’S MESSAGE
By joining ICORP as a volunteer, you will be taking a huge and positive step. As a charity, we are dedicated to the conservation and protection of wildlife. It would mean a lot to me and my support group to see you join our tribe and see that you have heard our call. We cannot lead the fight against poaching without a strong and supportive base.
We have men and women on the front lines who have left their families and risk their lives every day while protecting the iconic animals of Africa. By joining us as a volunteer, you will make a direct impact on saving rhinos, elephants and the big cats of Southern Africa.
Raising Funds for icorp
I am a supporter and trying to raise funds for ICORP, in October, I will be running the GOW100s ultra-marathon trail run from Apollo Bay to the 12 Apostles. The run is 100km from point to point, which I hope to complete in under 18.5 hours.
I’ll be dedicating the run to fundraising for the establishment of the reserve in Mozambique. ICORP seeks to secure this land, not only for the protection of rhinos from poaching activities but also elephants, big cats and flora within the reserve.
As we’re coming to witness the 6th mass extinction, support for this organisation is truly valued. By giving what you can, you’re helping to secure protected land for vulnerable species.
ICORP K9 Units
We at ICORP will have our own K9 units. This means we need to build kennels and everything any unit needs to make sure our K9’s have just the best. The most important is training. Our partners Aequitas Veritas are doing the training and this is at a high standard. Karma our young Malinois is on the training journey. Please contact Inel Burger to find out more about this awesome initiative and how you and your company can donate. Have a look here at the train a dog save a rhino walk all welcome.
Beautiful Karma, growing up
We started Karma of with sausages on the ground and putting objects down for her to follow. At this stage, she is following/tracking sent without the aid of treats. It’s only a couple of meters at this stage but we are increasing the distance with every class.
Protecting wildlife in Southern Africa
We have to become seriously involved with saving wildlife in Southern Africa. ICORP have Rangers on the ground in Reserves saving wildlife.
We need food and fuels to ensure our operations are maintained. Please folks, its the Christmas season. Let’s make it a special season for our Rangers and wildlife. These funds will be used to buy a fridge and freezer. Please walk this journey with us. We are a registered not for profit in South Africa, Australia and U.S. All funders will have their names pasted to the fridge.
