We are delighted to have teamed up with the Balule Game Reserve, part of Game Reserves United, to offer you the chance to EXCLUSIVELY sponsor a member of the Black Mambas anti-poaching unit. This is your chance to play a role on the front line of anti-poaching – without leaving your front room!
The Black Mambas are South Africa’s first all female anti-poaching unit, and they operate on the front line of the Balule coalition of private game reserves on the western border of the world famous Kruger National Park. The ladies day starts with checking the perimeter fences for signs of poaching activity. This is a 14 km walk in temperatures that can reach as high as 40C.
The team have enjoyed some initial success, contributing to a reduction in rhinos poached from 16 in 6 months to 3 in 11 months. Additionally, they have played a significant role in reducing snaring and poisoning activities by 76% in their area of operation during the first 18 months since their formation.
We have a choice of seven Black Mambas for you to sponsor and also three different tiers of sponsorship. All you need to do is click the Mamba Profiles button below, choose the team member you would like to sponsor and then return to this page and choose your tier below. All funds raised through the Sponsor a Black Mamba scheme will be sent to the Balule Game Reserve to help keep the Black Mambas operational and to help them expand into a larger area.
