You can also help the Trust, just by donating.


Dear donator

We appreciate your donation at any level.

This will help the Turgwe Hippo Trust to purchase the necessary materials to operate the Trust to keep on saving these wild hippos.  To run the Trust we use a generator for power as we do not have electricity living here in the Zimbabwe bush.  We operate the pump in the river to keep the hippos two emergency pans with water by utilising this generator.  Our Internet and Email communications are run using a satellite dish powered by the generator. We need daily fuel to run the generator and to run the Trust’s vehicles.  We need to employ local people for any extra projects as well as pay the game scouts.

You will be helping us by any donation you can afford.

A few actions we recently achieved thanks to your help amongst our normal daily tasks: we fed the hippos with hay, survival ration and horse cubes for five months, we improved the flow of the Turgwe river, and we daily patrol the bush either on our own or accompanying the four game scouts, removing the snares put by poachers.

Thanks so much, love Karen
