Donate Helps the Trust

Dear Donator

We appreciate your donation at any level.

Your donation 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 rangers.

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 rangers, removing the snares put by poachers.

When the truck delivers hay at the trust, all the team has hands on carrying the bales

The rangers proudly present all the monthly collect of snares they have removed from the bush.
