Big Five Board Awards Deploys Funds for African Wildlife Projects
Frontier is pleased to announce that the funds raised at the Big Five Board Awards 2018, through a charity auction held during the event have been successfully deployed to three excellent causes committed to fighting for the preservation and protection of Africa’s most precious resource and specifically in this case, rhinos and pangolins, the world’s most wanted mammals. The beneficiaries of our Big Five charity auction were The Gondwana Conservation Foundation (GCF), The Tikki Hywood Foundation and The Poached Rhino Charity. The impact of the funds raised is humbling and makes us even more determined to make this an annual event in the Frontier calendar, where the oil & gas industry can come together under our banner and make an impact on the fight for Africa’s wildlife.
A lot more can be done and I urge oil & gas companies to consider the impact of their operations on wildlife and wild habitats and to engage in worthwhile conservation projects such as these, who can ensure that investments made; have a real and material impact on the ground. Special thanks to the companies and individuals who contributed to the auction, without you this would not have been possible…Phil & Jenny Loader, Brigitte Walsh & Wide Africa Safaris, Patrick Mavros Junior & Senior, Lesley Wood and Wild Earth Wildlife Photography, the FT, Oil Review Africa, Upstream Newspaper, GeoExpro, Menas & Associates and others who contributed.
In 2019, we will be evolving this event into a more notable glamorous affair and on the 21 November 2019 in London we will host the Big Five Board Awards 2019 as an Awards Dinner. We invite you all to join us.
I am delighted to share with you the feedback and photos from the beneficiaries…
