"Be the change that you wish to see in the world"

Vision

The Panthera Africa Ambassador program is an integral part of realising the vision of Panthera Africa – a world where all animals, people and nature are equally respected, acknowledged and loved.  If you envision the sanctuary itself as the root and stem of a beautiful tree of life, the green luscious leafy branches that reach far and wide are the Ambassadors spreading the Panthera Africa principles and love all over the world. It is instrumental to share the responsibility of our mission with all our stakeholders and stand united with one collective voice. In unity there is strength and in order to realise our vision a lot of strength is needed, both in order to fund and run the sanctuary successfully, as well as awakening minds and hearts all over the world to the reality of what is going on, and to achieve our overall mission.
