Empowers Africa recently made a grant to Wilderness Wildlife Trust for the translocation of a black rhino founder population to Botswana.  Botswana offers a safe refuge for endangered species with full support from the Government and Department of Wildlife and National Parks in order to secure their safety from poaching.

The Lugenda Wilderness Camp is located in the Niassa Reserve, covering parts of Cabo Delgado Province and nearly 1/3 of Northern Mozambique. The Reserve is an untouched and undiscovered 42,000 km expanse of wilderness. The Niassa National Reserve is Mozambique's most important protected area, harboring the country's largest population of wildlife, including 70% of Mozambuque's Mozambique's elephants. Just last year the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) signed on for co-management of the Reserve. WCS's overall goal is to mutually and sustainably conserve the biodiversity of the Reserve and enhance the social and economic well-being of resident communities. Their core strategy focuses on strengthening law enforcement to tackle elephant poaching and illegal logging.

Some of our Trustees recently visited a primary school on Benguerra Island built by The Rainbow Fund. The school houses approximately 360 children from grades 1 to 7. It is the only school on the island. Children who want to further their education must go to the mainland and it costs approximately USD 700 per year.The school needs new classrooms, a garden so it can create a healthy feeding scheme, a library and media centre. The government supplies 7 teachers and 5 are brought from the mainland. The Rainbow Fund also had to build their accommodations. If you would like more information about the foundation, please visit www.azura-retreats.com refer to the Rainbow Fund page. 
The Rainbow Fund is primarily funded by Azura and by guests of the lodge.

Located in southeast Africa, Mozambique boats a stunning coastline spanning 2,500km along its entire eastern frontier. There are miles of untouched beaches! Azura Benguerra Island Beach Resort is part of the Bazaruto Archipelago located off the coast of Mozambique in the Indian Ocean. It is an unspoiled island within a Marine National Park with deserted beaches of pure white sand that extend for miles. The area has magnificent reefs for diving and snorkeling and is home to turtles ,migrating whales,dolphins, and the elusive and protected 'dugong',along with marlin,sailfish and tuna.
These pictures are GORGEOUS!

The David Sheldrick Wildife Trust is the most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world. It has rescued and released 150 elephants since inception. Each elephant requires feeding every 3 hours and even sleeps with its handler at night. This is a massive operation that requires constant funding. To learn more about how you can help rescue baby elephants please visit www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org.
