“One that supports, protects, and champions a cause!”

 

 The word‘patron’ - derives from Latin ‘patronus’, which means "protector of clients" or "defender".

WHAT IS A CELEBRITY?

  

A celebrity, also referred to as a celeb in popular culture, is a person who has a prominent profile and commands a great degree of public fascination and influence in day-to-day media. The term is implied with great popular appeal, prominence in a particular field, and is easily recognized by the general public.

 

So, if you are lucky enough to have someone POPULAR - a person who has a prominent profile and commands a great degree of public fascination and influence BELIEVE IN YOUR CAUSE - and wants to support the work you do – who wants to help make a difference and help you achieve the goals you set out for your cause – you have yourself a PATRON!

  

CHRIS PACKHAM is a person who demands public respect in the world of conservation and CHRIS truly believes in the work we do in Namibia with large carnivores. He champions our cause and because he believes in AfriCat – he gives us credibility!

  

Chris Packham: “I have the great fortune to visit many conservation projects around the world and AfriCat is in the premiership. Its whole ethos is founded upon securing practical solutions to problems in the field. It’s about really making a difference, not talking about it. It’s about intelligent and effective solutions being implemented now, not tomorrow. And its new initiatives are more exciting than ever, releasing rehabilitated animals into huge protected reserves where they are carefully studied and monitored.

 

“The standard of care is exemplary and our understanding of these creatures’ ecologies and behaviours is constantly being advanced here. A few more AfriCats and this continent’s unique fauna would be a lot better off. Please do whatever you can to support its work.”
