AFRICA CRIES IS A FILM PRODUCTION COMPANY BASED IN MAURITIUS.
Our aim is to produce short films for the awareness and education of endangered animals, primarily White and Black rhinos in Africa. In return we hope this will generate sufficient funds for a sustainable solution, which we call "The Ark".
AFRICA CRIES FILM PRODUCTION UNIQUE, WIN-WIN SOLUTION.
1. A key objective of ours is to conserve the rapidly dwindling wildlife areas and to provide a sanctuary for fauna and flora as part of our heritage, in particular the two African rhino species.
2. We believe that the only way a wildlife sanctuary can survive the onslaught of socio-economic pressures is by creating employment, earning foreign currency and promoting sustainable tourism – as a true example of eco-tourism effectively linking tourism with conservation and the community.
Our environmental management system will be a holistic one, where the ecological needs are balanced with the needs of people and their communities, i.e. focusing on the interdependence of tourism, conservation and local communities.
Our long term objective will be to set up a wildlife sanctuary, “The Ark” to protect, breed and ultimately increase the populations of endangered species especially White and Black rhinos as well as institute a safe horn removal program as a deterrent against would be poachers..
A research and development centre will be constructed and developed .This facility will focus in particular on research and development in the breeding of endangered animals.
In addition, a rhino breeding sustainability model will be developed, in order to assist existing private rhino owners and would be rhino breeders in increasing the success of their respective rhino breeding initiatives.
Our aim is to educate the world not only about what is actually happening but also to broaden global general knowledge about Africa. We will do this through setting up camps where guests will be able to witness first-hand what the sanctuary is all about. Because children are our future, an educational Camp for Children will be included, to accommodate children from all around the world. Here they will learn the values of Africa and the heritage that we are trying to preserve, through respect and trust.
