Through our conservation fund, ORYX aims to support the conservation of the wildlife and spectacular habitats that bring us so many delightful hours of photographic pleasure. In order to co-ordinate and effectively implement our conservation efforts, we are launching the ORYX Nature Conservation Fund (OCF) in 2011.
A minimum of US$25 from each ORYX tour sign-up goes directly into this fund. This does not increase the cost of our tours as these projects incur no extra administrative expenses; therefore, the sponsoring of the various conservation projects that we endeavor to support does not make our tours more expensive. Ultimately, just by signing up, you are ensured that your contribution goes directly to nature conservation!
Our goal is to support such initiatives in multi-faceted ways. including monitoring and research work, hands-on conservation and habitat protection.
