Working With The Black MambasThe all female anti-poaching team saving wildlife
The Black Mamba APU was founded in 2013 by Transfrontier Africa and created to protect the Olifants West Region of Balule Nature Reserve in South Africa and has since expanded to cover the entire Balule area, 400km².
Alice started working with the Black Mambas in October 2016, providing team building and mindset training.
She went back to Balule for four weeks in March/April 2017; helping develop the management practises of the Black Mambas, and undertaking a review of their working practises in light of the ever evolving and worsening poaching levels across the region.
Following on from the progress made in spring 2017, Alice returned in July/August to run a resilience, leadership and development package for the Black Mambas. This included career development and financial planning workshops, to develop broader personal and financial resilience to complement their role as leaders in their communities, as well as within the anti-poaching arena.
“Helping the Black Mambas excel even further, and develop as shining lights and women leaders is a real privilege. Supporting the work that the Mambas, and others, are doing to safeguard the African wildlife for future generations is one of my passions.” Alice Bromage
Donate – Help provide Resilience and Leadership Training for the Black Mambas
I am going to be providing a Resilience Leadership package in Spring 2019, in line with an up-skilling drive, commensurate with the continued increase in poaching activity across South Africa.
I provide all of the training pro-bono, however I need your help to get myself to SA, help cover the training costs whilst I am there; fuel, food for the Mambas during training, training materials to take them into the bush, and shipping costs for donations of books and training materials that people have kindly donated. Can you help?
With 35 Mambas to train – £1000 doesn’t go far – but we are efficient with the funds and 100% of your donations will go to supporting the Mambas – this is as close as you can get to
YOUR SUPPORT WILL HELP ENSURE THAT THE RHINOS, ELEPHANTS, LIONS AND OTHER WONDERFUL BEASTS OF THE WILD TO SURVIVE – GIVE THEM A CHANCE – HELP THE MAMBAS BE THEIR BEST AND PLEASE DONATE WHATEVER YOU CAN 🙂
