Beginning with the company’s groundbreaking conservation achievements during the restocking of Phinda Private Game Reserve, &Beyond has continued to take part in a number of conservation successes. Its approach to the creation of this reserve, from the underlying conservation issues to its interaction with the community, would prove to be the foundation on which all &Beyond’s subsequent projects were to be built. Since then the company has embarked on a variety of pioneering conservation initiatives, both in Africa and beyond. Some of its most comprehensive conservation victories are described below.
Gaur translocation in India
&Beyond was at the forefront of the ground-breaking mass translocation of 19 gaur (Indian bison) at Bandhavgarh National Park in India, the first successful reversal of a local extinction by means of the mass translocation of wild animals in the country.
A decade of leopard research
The MunYaWana Leopard Project, a collaboration between &Beyond and Panthera, a USA-based philanthropic association focused on the conservation of the world’s 37 species of wild cats was conducted at &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve, resulting in regulations for sustainable leopard trophy hunting and a stricter system of permits for the control of problem animals.
Mnemba Island Marine Conservation Area
In 2005, &Beyond worked with the Zanzibar Department of Fisheries and members of local Zanzibari fishing communities to form the Mnemba Island Marine Conservation Area (MIMCA).
Green turtle monitoring project
Staff at &Beyond Mnemba Island are involved in a regional tagging programme that monitors the movements of the globally endangered green turtles.
Ader’s duiker and suni
Breeding projects for the rare Ader’s duiker and endangered suni are being run at &Beyond Mnemba Island, with the population of Ader’s duiker tripling in eight years and more than 250 suni relocated off the island.
Rhinos Without Border
In 2011 &Beyond embarked on the first ever private game reserve donation of rhino to another country, when we translocated six white rhino from &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve in South Africa to Botswana’s Okavango Delta. In partnership with Great Plains Conservation, the company is now preparing to translocate up to a further hundred rhino to the country in an initiative designed to help counter the scourge of poaching and preserve this African icon for future generations.
