The Blue Fund
Home is where our heart is
The Blue Fund, developed through a partnership between Grindrod Bank and Wildlands Conservation Trust, aims to provide funding and support for vital conservation work along the South African coastline. With numerous threats facing this spectacular and unique ecosystem, conservation organisations can access funding from the Blue Fund to carry out elements of their work.
The Blue Fund recognised the crucial work being done by SANCCOB to conserve South Africa’s coastal birds and was therefore eager to help fund their initiatives. The support of the African Penguin chick bolstering project will enable the operational costs associated with this, and other rescue and rehabilitation activities, to be covered.
Conservation issues along our coastline require ongoing and consistent effort for real impacts to be made. It is through the Blue Fund that Grindrod Bank and Wildlands hope to address this, creating a stable platform on which to develop and grow conservation initiatives.
