Our chosen charitable organisation is A-Sisterhood, a female focused initiative that supports the two below charities, which all money raised from Miss Earth Wales will be going to:

Black mambas

The Black Mambas are South Africa’s first all-female anti-poaching unit, and they operate on the front line of the Balule coalition of private game reserves on the western border of the world famous Kruger National Park.

The team was created when 26 local jobless female high-school graduates were put through an intensive tracking and combat training programme. Kitted out in second-hand European military uniforms, paid for by donations, the women are deployed to protect rhinos in the 40,000 acre reserve.

We are inspired by the vision of this charity, not only in its protection of animals but in its promotion of the female in to traditionally male roles. The Mambas are looked up to by the young women in their villages as heroes with many young girls wanting to be black mambas when they ‘grow up’. The women are to be commended not only for their vital role in the protection of an endangered species but often becoming the main breadwinner in their large families.

Wildlife SOS

-Elephant & Sloth Bear conservation and care

Wildlife SOS is a conservation non-profit organisation in India, established in 1995 with the primary objective of rescuing and rehabilitating wildlife in distress, and preserving India's natural heritage. It is currently one of the largest wildlife organisations in South Asia.

Wildlife SOS leads efforts to protect endangered wild elephant populations in India, as well as rescue, treat and care for elephants exploited and abused for tourism and “begging”. We work closely with the Forest Department and other agencies to help enforce wildlife protection, anti-poaching and anti-trafficking laws.

Wildlife SOS cares for 30 elephants at several sanctuaries which include the treatment unit at ECCC specially equipped to care for elephants needing check-ups, special treatment for chronic injuries and emergency care. We also have a dedicated elephant ambulance, rescue teams and a network of informants and undercover staff.

Wildlife SOS leads conservation and rescue efforts for vulnerable sloth bears, Asiatic black bears, brown bears, and moon bears. We are best known for our efforts to eliminate the “dancing bear” trade in India, rescuing the last captive sloth bear from this abusive practice in 2009.

With approximately 300 bears in our care at 6 sanctuaries throughout India, Wildlife SOS continues to study and care for wild bear populations. We treat bears caught in wildlife-human conflicts, those injured by snares or poachers, and often release them back into the wild once they are rehabilitated.
