Fund-raising
Mauritius WildLife Foundation
The Mauritian Wildlife Foundation does not receive any direct grants from the government or any other source and all funds come from project appeals, donations and fund-raising activities. We currently run 20 projects employing up to 100 staff and need to raise around Rs 32m (UK £745,000/US $1,100,000) per year. This daunting task is co-ordinated by our fund-raising manager and involves a wide range of initiatives. If you enjoy contact with people, have organizational skills and would be interested in participating in our fund-raising initiatives we would like to hear from you.

Ile aux Aigrettes- Ecotours Mahebourg
Mauritius WildLife Foundation
Our ecotours welcome visitors to Ile aux Aigrettes to see some of our conservation work (see Ile aux Aigrettes in IN THE FIELD). All visitors are accompanied and are required to follow certain regulations in order to respect the conservation work being carried out. Visitors are guided by our ecotour rangers. When we have large groups of visitors and especially student groups it is helpful to have volunteers available to accompany and support the rangers to ensure that visitors enjoy their visit. Volunteers also assist when the group enters our shop where we sell items to support our fund-raising activities, or they may participate in other activities such as questionnaire administration.
