An Initiative of the Amakhala Game Reserve
The Amakhala Conservation Centre is largely funded by the Sindisa Foundation (a non-profit conservation organisation) and has three main objectives:
• To promote environmental awareness and impart knowledge of the environmental, economic and cultural importance of wildlife, wild areas and the functioning of natural ecosystems.
• To identify and support research projects that provide ecological and social information relevant to the management of the reserve and to wildlife conservation in general.
• To encourage and advise on various conservation projects which will ensure the conservation of biodiversity and functioning of ecological systems.
Following on the successful re-introduction of 15 species onto Amakhala the conservation centre continues to investigate the reintroduction of other species like Cape vulture into the area.
