Consider Donating

     There are many great organizations to donate to or get involved with. This page has links to a few ways that you can provide much needed assistance to wildlife reserves, anti-poaching organizations, and conservation groups.

     I have also listed a few ways that you can help Red Hawk Adventures be even more adventurous by donating gear, money, or by donating towards the hosting of this website.

     Suggestions of new groups to volunteer with and ways I can help in the United States, Africa, or Asia are welcome. Please contact me and let me know where I can be of service!

          Thank you.

Translation Services

     Soon we'll be looking for English-to-Chinese and English-to-Vietnamese translators to broaden the subtitle database for videos created by Red Hawk Adventures. If you have experience providing translations or fan-subtitling tv shows and media, we'll need your help. Stay tuned for more details on how you can get involved soon.

Gear Wishlist

     If you or your organization would like to donate money or gear directly to me I would greatly appreciate that! However large donations should go to where they are most needed: wildlife reserves and anti-poaching groups on the front-lines. I'm not always on the front-lines, however any equipment donated to me I will take with me when I travel abroad to donate to a legitimate organization that most needs that gear.

     Red Hawk Adventures has its own Gear Wishlist at Any gear donated to me via Amazon I will test out, use gently, and then donate to an anti-poaching group or ranger-training facility in Africa. The Amazon link provides the opportunity for individuals to donate directly without exposing their credit card or shipping information to Red Hawk Adventures or other people (except and is a safe and easy way to support Red Hawk Adventures. Donations of used wildlife books are also greatly appreciated.

     Groups or companies looking to sponsor Red Hawk Adventures and earn advertising space may contact me directly using any of the methods on the About page or at RedHawk @ (without spaces) with the subject line "Sponsorship." Thank you!

Charities and Organizations

Raising Awareness & Volunteering

     I have outlined in the Get Involved section how spending your free time raising awareness can help to raise funds for wildlife organizations. Simply telling charitable friends and family about these organizations can be just as helpful as donating the money yourself.

     Companies making charitable, tax-deductible contributions make up much of the money that goes towards charities and conservation efforts. Talking to your boss or employer about making a donation on behalf of the company can provide a huge boost in funding without any financial burden to yourself.

     For some things honest dedication is enough to qualify for a volunteer position, however individuals with special skills may be able to find a position at a tiger breeding program or cheetah gene research center. Or as a specialist instructor for an anti-poaching group in the heart of Kruger National Park. Don't be afraid to approach a conservation group looking for volunteers. Make yourself available for an adventure and challenge yourself.

     See some examples of ways you can volunteer or fund your own adventure on the Get Involved page.

How Monetary Donations Help Conservation Efforts

     I've selected several organizations to feature on this site which I personally believe spend their money wisely with very low administrative costs. In some cases 100% of the funds donated go directly to operations on the ground in key areas. These organizations may fund National Parks, wildlife rehabilitation, or anti-poaching efforts where poaching is worst. In lieu of actual money, frequent flier miles are also accepted by some charities as an easy means of indirect support for their transportation needs.

Costs associated with operations on the ground are defined as:
