Volunteer Projects

Video editing for the WILD Foundation

Launched 1999, the Zulu Village Project fosters self-reliance, enhances traditional culture and instills environmental awareness. The villagers named the project “Impumelelo yeSandlwana” – Success for the People of Isandlwana. Since its inception, the people of Isandlwana have created this success themselves – each WILD initiative works to build local leadership and economy while fostering cultural traditions and environmental stewardship. Managed locally, under the quiet but determined leadership of Elizabeth Dhlamini (Ms. D), a team of local leaders and coordinator Samantha Terblanche, the Zulu Village Project is flourishing, with new initiatives each year.

Cultural Preservation The WILD Foundation on Vimeo.

In 2001-2002 The Kissama Foundation (Angola) planned and implemented the first initiative to rehabilitate Angola’s nationals parks after the 25 year civil war. Working with a team of international partners including The WILD Foundation, Dr Wouter van Hoven of The Kissama Foundation planned and implemented the translocation of 36 elephants and other wildlife to a 10,000 hectare, specially-fenced “soft release” areas in the north of Quicama. The animals came from over-populated areas in South Africa and Botswana. These animals helped to re-build a prospering wildlife community in the once devastated park. Once habituated, those animals that were formerly native will be released to the entire park, and those not strictly native will remain in the soft release area. The elephants are doing well — they’ve produced at least 8 new baby elephants!
