SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT and CONSERVATION through EDUCATION.
This is the ideal opportunity for you and/or your organisation to become involve in Education for Sustainable Development & Conservation. The latter is the only logical and most effective way to conserve and preserve our environment and wildlife, that is, by positively informing and changing the attitudes and thus actions of the people responsible for conservation and the health of our planet. Why ...!?

I WANT TO SUPPORT THE WEF
In order to fulfil our vision, mission and objectives, the WEF (a registered Non-Profit Organisation, no: 078-886 NPO) needs to raise the necessary funds - and we do that by either applying our professional skills and expertise (see our "Ways to Support") or specific fundraising projects such as the one below:
- education, workshops & presentations,
- professional services, events, media,
- marketing and fundraising
South Africa's natural environment has, over the past 20 years, deteriorated nearly the fastest of most countries in the world, rankeding 128 out of the 132 countries measured ((EPI), with Iraq last on the list.
During the past 80 years we have decreased the numbers of large mammals in Africa by between 80 and 96%, destroyed more than 55% of our wetlands and critically endangered 54% of our river systems
degraded our arable land and soil to a point of being in dire and of the lowest quality in Africa -
leaving South Africa with an ecological footprint higher than the global average!
The deterioration of our environment means a decrease in living standards and the quality of life for all - we MUST change our destructive behaviour NOW !!!
Its a fact that only KNOWLEDGE changes ATTITUDES and ACTIONS - exactly what the WEF's mission is!
"The best way predict the future, is to create it TODAY!"
- Plant a seed and provide for a day,
- plant a tree and provide for a year,
- equip a human with knowledge and you provifde for eternity.
