The Earth Awareness Trust is about encouraging social change through environmental awareness and education. We are launching a whole new series of enviro educational school initatives as children are the future of conservation. With our campaigns and projects we aim to achieve long lasting social change all over the world.
We aim to:
- Educate the public especially children in Africa and all over the world
- Raise worldwide awareness for wildlife and the environment
- Empower communities and children
- Gather information on the current wildlife situation
- Encourage conservation organizations in Southern Africa to join forces
- Do what we can to protect our planet and preserve its biodiversity
PARTNERS IN CONSERVATION:
The Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization and their anti poaching & education initiative www.earthorganization.org
"The Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization (TLAEO) is an independent, non-profit group which seeks to reverse the dwindling spiral of the plant and animal kingdoms and our environment through education and action."
Founder of the organization Lawrence Anthony, author of Babylon´s Ark, The Elephant Whisperer and the recent bestseller The Last Rhino, always said that, "there is no silver bullet" to saving our Rhino´s - we need to do it all.
The Magqubu Ntombela Foundation and their anti-poaching initiatives www.mnf.org.za
The establishment of the Magqubu Ntombela Memorial Foundation (MNF / the Foundation), founded by Dr Player, Andrew Ewing and Nick Steele, was based on a promise that Dr Player made to Magqubu Ntombela.
Dr Ian Player, who considers Magqubu his great mentor and friend, once said: "Through his patient instruction he introduced me to a new cosmology. We worked together capturing rhino and on long patrols fighting poaching gangs. Together we took more than 1000 people into wilderness areas of iMfolozi and Lake St Lucia. He always led with courage; following the rhino paths and stopping to explain the history of the landscape. For Magqubu the hills and trees lived."
