Our current effort involves raising money to film a documentary and create marketing materials to be used by the AWARE Trust organization. The AWARE Trust is a non-profit organization located in Zimbabwe and comprised of veterinarians doing work in animal and wildlife research and rehabilitation. Every two years they conduct rhino dehorning operations to detour poaching activities for rhinos in protected habitats.
Additional private funds can help to execute larger dehorning operations and continuous park protection by local rangers. AWARE looks for funds to support those operations and deliver medical supplies and modern equipment to the local park teams.
Expedition Art will lead a small group of documentary film makers to help tell the story of this dedicated group of veterinarians and volunteers working in Zimbabwe. All of the funds we raise directly support the creation of the film and marketing materials for AWARE.
With only an estimated 750 remaining Rhinos in Zimbabwe any poaching activity critically impacts the population.
