Everyone, not just nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, can channel their love of the environment to the protection of endangered animals by giving some of their outdoor gear. If you are a hiker, skiier, cycler, Search and Rescue volunteer, Ski Patrol volunteer, etc, you know you have some extra gear that could be used by an anti-poaching patrol. Donate it!
We accept any sporting gear, whether it can be used for anti-poaching or not. Gear that cannot be used for anti-poaching (bicycles, skis, mountaineering gear, etc) is sold at one of our public sales, and all proceeds go to our programs in Africa. So if your sport is backcountry skiing or cycling, you can still donate some of your gear and make a difference.
