Obviously a wondrously effective organisation. Small, but exquisite in every detail”
Bill Oddie, OBE – Birdwatcher, natural history presenter and High Five Club Patron
High Five Club is thrilled to have once again facilitated a grant during 2017/18 from OAT to fund the development and upliftment of our partner in Zambia, Mnkhanya Community Resource Board (MCRB).
As a result of this support, in the 9 months from January to September 2017 the community scouts have conducted 2,720 man patrols, decommissioned and collected 300 wire snares, recovered 4 muzzle loading guns and apprehended 6 poachers. The scouts and their families are no longer hungry and are motivated to do their vital anti-poaching work as they feel that someone values them and appreciates the sacrifices they make in carrying out the dangerous work of protecting wildlife each day.
In Zambia we have continued our support in 2017 of a very gifted future conservationist to allow her to complete her secondary education, along with helping a talented local Zambian artist realise his dream to study art and link this into wildlife conservation.
