Our Mission

To support PAMS Foundation Tanzania and other compatible projects that meaningfully conserve biodiversity, wilderness, habitats and ecological processes through actions that benefit nature and communities.

Elephant Conservation Project

Tens of thousands of elephants are being killed every year for their tusks. PAMS Foundation is working hard to help save Africa’s elephants from being slaughtered due to the illegal ivory trade.

Giraffe Conservation Support

In 1999, there were around 140 000 giraffes, but today there are only an estimated number of 80 000 giraffes left.  They are being targeted for bush meat and need our protection.

Communities & Conservation

Training and capacity building of Rangers and other relevant Law Enforcement Officers is essential for ongoing wildlife protection. Africa needs well trained and equipped rangers.

Best Practice & Training

Sustainable conservation requires the understanding of communities living in and around wildlife areas. Their support is essential to the long term future of African wildlife and habitats.

Elephant Protection

Over 150,000 elephants have been killed and mutilated for their ivory over the last five years. Tanzania has been particularly heavily hit, losing over 66,000 elephants in the last decade.

When PAMS Foundation started the Ruvuma Elephant Project (REP) in Tanzania in 2011, it was evident that conventional approaches were not going to be the answer. Despite significant donor funded projects having provided substantial funding and equipment leading up to that time, the poaching situation was way out of control and it appeared impossible to stop. Around the period there was an average of more than one elephant carcass recorded per day.

Giraffe Protection

The giraffe is the tallest land animal in the world, at an average height of 16-18 ft. (5 meters).  They live primarily in savanna areas in the sub-Saharan region of Africa. Their extreme height allows them to eat leaves and shoots located much higher than other animals can reach, such as acacia trees.

While there has been great concern about elephants and rhinos, giraffes have unfortunately remained under the radar. There are now fewer giraffes than elephants in Africa, the ungainly mammal is facing a ‘silent extinction’ in the wild.

Training & Best Practice

PAMS Foundation supports training activities for all levels of enforcement and strongly believe in including a ‘train the trainers’ element with all training, whereby assistant trainers are identified, developed and mentored. We also promote and support on the job mentorship.

PAMS’ philosophy is about being efficient and maximizing efforts.  In order to improve wildlife protection work, from the community scouts level all the way up to law enforcement officers, intelligence officers and prosecutors, there is an ongoing need for capacity building, training and mentorship.

Community Conservation

The team at PAMS Foundation goes out of our way to work with communities to help them protect their crops and livestock, receive education on sustainable livelihoods and manage their conservation areas.  Making best friends of the community leads to many of them becoming the best allies for wildlife protection and conservation authorities. Such communities take better care of their resources and reveal those who assist in poaching activities to the relevant authorities.
