AWF teamed up with Disneynature to highlight the plight of Africa’s big cats, which has intensified in recent decades due to shrinking habitat and mounting conflict with humans. They generously agreed to donate a portion of sales from their film African Cats to support an AWF land lease conservation program that protects big cat habitat in Kenya. The “See African Cats, Save the Savanna” initiative was a roaring success. The proceeds allowed AWF to ultimately conserve tens of thousands of acres of savanna ecosystem for lions, cheetahs, and other wildlife.
“We have been so impressed with AWF’s attention to the overall communications to your constituents around this project, as well as the incredible dedication and expertise of your staff in the field. In fact we couldn’t be happier to be working with a longtime partner like the African Wildlife Foundation.”
