CAUSES WE CARE ABOUT

We look at what it will take to ensure the long-term survival of the areas in which we operate and we’ve identified two key areas of intervention:  conservation and education.  Education is important to our conservation ethos as it’s essential in lifting people out of poverty (a major driver in poaching and habitat destruction).  In addition we support reputable conservation projects, many of which look at predator species as, being high on the food chain, they represent the health of the underlying ecosystem.

ASILIAS COMMITMENT

Asilia Africa believes that we can conserve wildlife and preserve regions of cultural importance by offering support to critical causes in order to develop sustainable conservation economies in the areas we work in.  We are committed to offering in-kind and financial support to the causes introduced here. We hope that you will understand the deeper considerations of working in these fragile ecosystems and invite you to lend your support for these charitable causes
