Personal message

In 2017 Greg and Sara, the founders of Conservation Guardians took over management of the Shongweni Resource Reserve, a pristine but vulnerable reserve in South Africa. It consists of 1700hectares of incredible biodiversity and is home to buffalo, zebra, giraffe, and a number of other species. Unfortunately, these animals fall victim to poaching.

This Mandela Day(18 July 2020) the Conservation Guardians will be paddling 67km to raise funds for our new Quo Vadis Africa project which will:

1. Support and develop Shongweni's anti-poaching team
2. Get the necessary equipment for the anti-poaching team to function effectively
3. Food and family support for the rangers and community members
4. Kickstart the volunteer program which will incorporate teaching and long term sustainability initiatives.
