HESC receives huge donation

They have a particular passion for doing whatever they can to curb the scourge of rhino poaching. “We were so grateful when they recently paid us a visit to hand over a generous cheque towards our surviving rhinos, and other endangered species over which we are custodian,” said general manager Gretha Scheepers.

Rhino poaching and wildlife losses have reached epidemic proportions, and PAWS is here to try and help. PAWS is a non-profit, non-government assisted organization based in the Eastern Cape Province. They were formed in November 2011 in order to assist in the raising of funds towards the protection of Africa’s wildlife.

The main focus of the foundation has been, in recent months, the supply of both funding and equipment i.e. rhino monitoring equipment as well as anti-poaching equipment for various reserves in the Eastern Cape. Past donations include R65 000, donated to Chipembere Rhino Foundation, equipment donated to anti-poaching units at Shamwari, Amakhala and Mpongo game reserves.

HESC’s aim now is to continue supporting various anti-poaching initiatives in South Africa. Poaching, not only that of rhino’s has increased dramatically in recent years and they are committed to ensuring that this scourge is brought under control. The centre is also keenly aware that there is a desperate need for the creation of awareness in all age groups to the plight of Africa’s wildlife.

In addition to their commitment to anti-poaching, they would like to emphasize to all the importance of the securing the future of Africa’s wildlife, in particular those species identified by CITE as vulnerable, endangered and critical. i.e. African Wild Dog, Cheetah, Rhino, Lion and many bird species. Without these creatures, Africa would certainly be a poorer place to exist.
