MASVINGO – Tusk Trust, an international non-profit organisation dedicated to assist in the protection of African wildlife has given Save Valley Conservancy US $50 000 grant to combat threats to operations posed by Covid-19.
Save Valley administrator, Julie Price confirmed the grant to The Mirror.
The grant will be used to provide critical resources to maintain the rangers in the field and support anti-poaching operations.
Part of the donation will enable rangers to participate in the Wildlife Ranger Challenge-a pan-African virtual race with 5, 10 and 21km races in which participants log their race times.
The virtual run is aimed at raising more financial support to conservancies across Africa.
Tusk Trust has disbursed US $2m to several conservancies across Africa with more funding to be unveiled. https://masvingomirror.com
