Description

FUNDRAISER TO FIGHT POACHING IN AFRICA
ICORP is a self-funded, Anti-Poaching Unit (APU) in Mozambique, that is comprised of highly trained local individuals that have military or law enforcement experience. The ICORP team is dedicated to the protection of wildlife and believes that their focus on ranger training and community uplift projects will help bring an end to the poaching crisis in Southern Africa. http://icorprotection.org/

WE ARE STRONGER WORKING TOGETHER
OneProtest has joined forces with ICORP, in a collaborative effort to raise funds that will provide ICORP with much-needed water pumps and solar power. A drought in Africa has caused a water shortage, and the animals that once frequented the reserve that ICORP protects are leaving in search of water. Poachers wait by the water holes for the drained animals and kill them. Once the animals vacate the area, ICORP is no longer able to protect them. Additionally, the Rangers in ICORP's APU have to travel far to get the water they need, wasting valuable time and energy, which could be used to keep the animals safe from poachers. Please join us and help ICORP, save the last of Africa's wildlife!

Adam Sugalski of OneProtest is perhaps best known for his significant role in helping to stop the Florida bear hunt. Adam is an award-winning graphic artist, who found his calling after attending a circus protest, where he took notice of the design and messaging of the protest signs, and felt they needed to be designed with sharper images, and more efficient messaging. Adam started creating his own posters and researching about the abuse that circus animals are subjected to, which then inspired him to take action against circus abuse and other forms of animal cruelty, which eventually led him to the creation of his non-profit, OneProtest. Adam chose the name OneProtest because for Adam it was one protest, that changed everything and it only takes one person to make a difference. Since starting OneProtest, Adam has run several successful campaigns against the unjust treatment of animals, as well as exposed animal abuse, through undercover investigative work. Adam is an active strategist, public speaker, and dedicated environmental, and animal rights activist/advocate, who believes in the power of working together and offers his assistance to other groups, and organizations, empowering them with the tools they need to fight injustice. https://www.oneprotest.org/
