More about the Pelorus Foundation

The Pelorus Foundation mission is to protect, preserve and promote at-risk wildlife and environments across the planet. They aim to create and build on existing frameworks and initiatives to accelerate the pace of change towards a more sustainable future in protecting our environment, something that is fundamental to our experiences here at Pelorus.

All proceeds from this event will be going towards crucial work being carried out by the Foundation and their global partners and projects, such as the ongoing transfrontier ranger and air support project in connection with Frontier. This is an ongoing campaign to create force-multiplying skills for Rangers such as close air support, tracking, first aid and criminal procedure training. Providing essential ground-to-air training and support will tackle Africa’s devastating poaching crisis and protect precious ecosystems. Your donation towards this cause is key.
