The Bead Coalition donated R14,136.00 to the International Anti Poaching Foundation (IAPF) this month, from the sale of hand-beaded, red, black and white RHINO FORCE bracelets. This helps fund anti poaching teams protecting rhino in Southern Africa.
Anti-poaching rangers form the first line of defence for our wildlife. Without the right training and equipment, they cannot defend natural areas. The IAPF believes in wildlife conservation through direct action. It develops, implements and manages: Anti-poaching ranger training; conservation security plans; wildlife crime information systems and more. In 2009, Damien Mander, a former Australian Royal Navy Clearance Diver and Special Operations military sniper, formed the IAPF to use his unique skills for conservation. See more at:

The Bead Co. bracelets are made in a rural beading community in NW Province, thereby supporting local employment.
