Over the years Paradise Wildlife Park has done a tremendous amount to support African species and conservation, from assisting the Lemur and Madagascan EAZA appeals to Cheetah and Rhino Conservation, Lion Collaring for Ol Pejeta, even sending African Lions back to Uganda.
But now, with the generous support of the Motor-Vision Awards (www.Motor-Vision.co.uk/motor-vision-awards), Paradise is embarking on a new and incredibly exciting journey; Drive4Wildlife.
Drive4Wildlife will see four members of the Paradise team driving across Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda, delivering equipment and funds to extraordinary wildlife charities and culminating in the delivery and fitting out of a specialist vehicle that will be used by the Ugandan Wildlife Education Centre to rescue injured animals and help assist anti-poaching patrols. Many animals – from Gorillas to Lions, Rhinos and Elephants – are badly injured, often by poachers, so the ability to retrieve, care for and rehabilitate is essential.
Drive4Wildlife and the donations we deliver will make all this happen… and more. But we need your support too!
Before we set off, early in 2019, we’ll be reaching out to you, our fantastic supporters to maximise the impact of this incredible and vital journey.
Watch this space for more news – the build up and the trip itself will be documented and shared across all our social media channels so you can be there too.
