The IAPF – International Anti Poaching Foundation – www.iapf.org counts with an all women anti-poaching unit patrolling the land and protecting the wild.
The (apparently controversial according to the media) program started with 36 women being pushed even harder than men through a special forces style training. Only three dropped out.
The empowerment of women from disadvantaged backgrounds doesn’t just create an opportunity for them, but also for those around them. Although the unit is a wildlife conservation team, their background makes them work within the community and not against it and many have plans to open schools and foster orphans.
The fact that the whole team went vegan just says something is very right about the group.
We have linked up a video where you can see some of their training. Sadly, the documentary focuses a lot more on their white man trainer than on them, so we didn’t want to feature it as the main media. Who would’ve thought that media would still be so backwards thinking, reinforcing those social hierarchies?
POWER TO MARGNINALISED GROUPS. FOR THE LIBERATION OF THE EARTH.
