For more than 10 years, the WildiZe African Conservation Foundation has been lending its support to conservation projects across Africa, from improving the relationship between locals and animals to developing sustainable farming practices.

The projects, trips, and research teams that the group supports are working on a variety of issues -- community development, animal research, endangered species monitoring -- and sending back striking images of a country's animals on the edge of change.
