The Wilderness Foundation Africa works from its base in South Africa to protect and sustain wildlife and wilderness through integrated conservation and education programmes. 

Peace Parks Foundation is a non-profit organisation that helps countries throughout southern Africa to combine conservation areas across borders, work together to protect Africa’s natural heritage, and develop eco-tourism potential.

With world-class facilities and the most updated international music / performing arts curricula available, SMPAA is focused on lifting music / performing arts education in Vietnam to a new level.

Olsen Animal Trust has been established to partner organisations and individuals who are aligned in their vision to end animal cruelty and exploitation, enhance animal welfare, and conserve wildlife in its natural habitat.


Whether it is direct action anti-poaching in the field, large landscape wilderness management, or developing rising young leaders from disadvantaged communities for a career in conservation, the Wilderness Foundation has over 40 years of results. 

The Wilderness Foundation’s Forever Wild Conservation Programme was developed in 2011 as a response to the rhino poaching crisis and has been active through the Rhino Protection Initiative.  This initiative primarily provides logistical and operational support for conservation and law enforcement agencies responsible for rhino security. Activities include the coordination of anti-poaching training, aerial assistance, vehicle and specialist support, as well as a rhino survivor fund and demand reduction activities in Vietnam.


This also includes protecting endangered species and combatting wildlife crime. The organisation’s Rhino Protection Programme is a multi-faceted initiative that attacks the problem of rhino poaching on all levels: to stop the killing by helping conservation agencies secure the parks and protect the rhino; to stop the trade by assisting in the development of laws and counter-trafficking strategies; and to stop the demand through awareness and education campaigns.


As we believe that music / performing arts is an integral part of an individual’s holistic development, SMPAA has both the expertise and passion to deliver tangible benefits to its students to best prepare them for future success.


This mission embodies the vision and values of the Olsen family, inspired by their love of all animals.

Olsen Animal Trust is supporting the “Vietnam be my hero” Demand Reduction campaign with yearly grants.
