AFRICAT’S TOP 11 FUNDRAISING PROJECTS FOR 2016/2017 (PDF 7MB)
AFRICAT is familiar with the predator problems on communal and free-hold farmland along the western, northern and southern boundaries of the Etosha National Park and on farmland in central Namibia. In order to establish the effectiveness of relocating these trans-boundary carnivores, as well as the long-term sustainability of conflict mitigation practices – focusing on research as well as educating young Namibian farmers has become our focus.
Truly great projects need great sponsorship!
Realising the importance of AfriCat’s projects, sponsorship is what keeps this Foundation alive, and support on an ‘ongoing basis’ – is what is considered by many to be the most effective way of helping a foundation achieve good work.
One of the main reasons sponsors support AfriCat is because they recognises AfriCat’s change in emphasis from “capture and release” to an organisation concentrating on “conservation through education”.
While still attempting to remove carnivores from areas in which they have absolutely no chance of survival, AfriCat’s new focus will be to work with farmers to find ways of living with these wonderful animals.
The AfriCat Foundation is dependent on support to maintain our various programmes:
Large Carnivore Rehabilitation; Environmental Education; Human-Wildlife Conflict Mitigation; Community Support; Research and the Carnivore Care Centre

HELP SPONSOR THE MANGETTI WILD DOG RESEARCH PROJECT
This is the first collaborative effort between the Namibia Nature Foundation (NNF), N/a’an ku se Foundation, and AfriCat.
The selected study site (Mangetti Cattle Ranch and Mangetti National Park), is situated in the Kavango Region along the boundary between commercial farmland and Kavango communal farmland, to the east of the Etosha National Park. The study area includes about 40 farms and covers approximately 200,000 hectares (2,000 square kilometers), where wild dog packs are regularly sighted and farmer-predator conflict threatens their long-term survival.

CELEBRATE THE LIFE, ACHIEVEMENTS, AND CHARACTER OF SOMEONE YOU CHERISH!
Through a legacy, honour someone special, give tribute for a life well-lived, or simply celebrate a special occasion. The creation of a lasting legacy in the name of a loved-one recognises the interests and concerns of someone special, and memorialises their contribution to AfriCat’s cause. A legacy gift is a meaningful and long-lasting, helping future generations of Namibian children and their natural heritage.
WHY LEAVE A LEGACY?
Consider for a moment the charitable organisations which have positively impacted your life, your family members, or friends' lives. A charitable bequest in your will could endow your gift for the future of the AfriCat Foundation.
WHAT IS A LEGACY?
A legacy is a financial gift left behind which will benefit others. The AfriCat Foundation has been fortunate to have received legacies over the past few years, which have enabled the renovation of facilities, have helped create the rehabilitation nature reserve, and the building of new amenities, all of which have improved the quality of the Foundation’s permanent feline residents. The Environment Education Programme has similarly been expanded thanks to legacies, imparting a valuable life experience onto growing numbers of Namibia’s children.
GRAB A GROUP OF YOUR COLLEAGUES
Engage your colleagues and friends to conduct a joint fund-raiser to raise donations for AfriCat – hold competitions, arrange a jumble sale, auction, and other fun events to motivate your co-workers and friends to raise a donation for AfriCat.
SPONSOR YOUR FRIEND OR PARTNER
Sponsor friends, colleagues, or partners to mark an achievement - run a marathon in AfriCat’s name, swim for AfriCat, play football for AfriCat – all for a good cause.
ADOPT A SPOT
When you symbolically ADOPT-A-SPOT for AfriCat, you are helping Namibia’s predators during this most challenging time in their existence. Adopt-a-Spot is an enjoyable and fun way of helping AfriCat to help Namibia’s spotted cats. It’s an easy and affordable opportunity to contribute to the conservation of large carnivores in Namibia. At our new Carnivore Care and Information Centre we will have 2 huge cats painted on our wall. One is a cheetah and the other a leopard. Their spots and rosettes are not coloured in yet – but as soon as you ADOPT-A-SPOT, the cheetah and leopard will regain their spots!
Your name and where you are from, will be added to each spot.
For N$200 / US$ 25 / £16 / €20 per spot you decide on the SPOT or ROSETTE you wish to adopt for 1 year.
For N$400 / US$ 50 / £31 / €40 per spot you decide on the SPOT or ROSETTE you wish to adopt for 2 years.
For N$550 / US$69 / £42 / €55 per spot you decide on the SPOT or ROSETTE you wish to adopt for 3 years.
The funding goes towards the AfriCat Foundation’s general running costs, veterinary expenses, computers, vehicles, cameras, collars, telemetry, research, and fuel.
RESEARCH – sponsor a collar
AfriCat North uses GPS-enabled collars to tracks lions. The frequency of lions crossing the Etosha National Park (ENP) boundary into commercial farmlands, and the formation of independent populations outside of the park, is not known. This study will monitor trans-boundary lion movement to determine how the conflict between lions and farmers along these boundaries could be minimised. The objectives behind the AfriCat North lion tracking project are to collar lions found outside of ENP boundaries and then to monitor movement of these lions. Data will be used to locate weaknesses in the Etosha boundary fence. The pride dynamics along the Etosha boundary will also be studied.
VHF radio collar:
Leopard / Cheetah / Hyena / Caracal collar: N$ 2,350 per collar (US$ 294 / £181 / €235)
Satellite Collar (Iridium): N$ 25,000 per collar and tracking unit (US$ 2,500 / £1, 500 / €2, 500)
Leopard / Cheetah / Hyena N$ 15,000 (US$ 1,900 / £1,154 / €1,500)
