GCC Introduces “Wildlife Guardians” – Unique Conservation Travel Experience

Thank you to everyone who came out to see us at our recent events in Denver, San Francisco and Atlanta, and thank you for all of our partners and donors who made these events possible!

We always love meeting new supporters and partners, and we were so excited to use these events as an opportunity to introduce our new Conservation Tourism program: “Wildlife Guardians” – a unique travel experience designed to give guests an on the ground view of what we do, why we do it, and the problems we are trying to solve.

We are now accepting limited bookings for these once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Guided by our own Mbhoni Mzamani, guests will have the opportunity to meet with Anton Mzimba and the Timbavati Rangers, experience a rhino tracking excursion, participate in an elephant collaring with Elephants Alive, visit some of the local schools engaged in our Future Rangers education program, and experience the beauty of South Africa at one of our luxury, partner safari lodges.

In addition to spreading the word about the importance of the work we do and the communities we support on the ground, GCC will also use funds from these expeditions to continue to fund the work of our amazing and expanding South African team. If you would like more information about this life-changing experience, please download our brochure or learn more here.

We encourage you to share this program with friends, family or fellow conservationists in your life!

GCC South Africa Team Onboards New Education Partners

GCC South Africa Team Onboards New Education Partners

Our incredible South African team is working tirelessly to continue expanding GCC’s impact on communities and wildlife. In addition to regularly teaching at local schools to engage more students in our Future Rangers conservation education program, they are now onboarding new conservation partners onto our digital education delivery program: The Future Rangers App.

This one of a kind application enables GCC and its partner organizations to bring conservation education curriculum, media and resources to schools and communities in even the most rural areas. We are also able to track engagement, progress and response in order to develop impact models for other non-profit organizations.

This month, our South African team onboarded a new group of 82 interns from Africa Foundation , our largest onboarding to date, through a comprehensive education and training program designed by our facilitators. These interns will in turn be placed in schools to implement conservation and educational programs in communities across the region. The training was a huge success, and will result in tracking the development of more than 10,000 kids using the Future Rangers App every day!

Thank you Lefa, Promise, and Mbhoni for your passion and for making such a massive impact!
