Phinda supports numerous studies and research projects and is also part of a first-of-its-kind Temminck’s ground pangolin rehabilitation, release and monitoring initiative that is proving highly successful. This is just one of numerous world-firsts perpetuated by this special reserve. In partnership with &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve, the African Pangolin Working Group (APWG) is re-introducing the Temminck’s ground pangolin to a region where it has been locally extinct for decades.
To meet the expected objectives of the research and monitoring study, we recognize that a full-time PhD student, is needed to support this amazing work. This is why Africa Foundation is continuously raising to support the project and the students who conduct the research and monitoring on the reserve.
