December 2011 – Wishing you all a happy and successful New Year!

The holidays have brought good news for the scouts in Thuma Forest Reserve. We received three donations for the Sponsor-a-Scout program. This will secure the job of three of the dedicated scouts for another year. Thank you all so much, Claudia, Urs and Kiyoko.

In Vietnam we were able to help the Forest Protection Department confiscating another macaque, who was kept in a small cage in a private house. We hope to be able to release him back into the wild soon. Thank you Asli for your donation to help with this.

WAGI joined GlobalGiving’s Open Challenge, a fundraising challenge for non-profits, to fundraise for Elephant Protection in Malawi, and also to become eligible for a permanent spot on GlobalGiving’s website,, the internationally recognized marketplace for philanthropy that connects individual donors to the causes they care most about.

“We are excited for the chance to tap into GlobalGiving’s network of committed donors and corporate sponsors who can support our efforts. Organizations participating in the challenge can also earn a permanent spot on the GlobalGiving website if they successfully mobilize supporters to raise $4,000 from at least 50 unique donors through GlobalGiving during the contest.
