As is the case across the world, farming communities living in close proximity to wildlife also face real challenges protecting their crops, livestock and livelihoods.
Notugre is a large local employer and a significant contributor to the local economy. Many individuals and individual properties undertake a range of community outreach programmes here.
Targeted towards all age groups and aimed to increase understanding and engagement so as to reduce human-wildlife conflict and help inspire future wildlife custodians.
Aimed to provide skills development to enable local communities to participate in Notugre from an economic standpoint, through direct employment, self-employment and entrepreneurship. Even though we are only at the start, our projects to date have created work for 25 people.
