Who We Work With

In order for us to maximize our efficiency and effectiveness, we have forged partnerships with governmental entities and NGOs. Through our collaboration with WWF, Chengeta Wildlife has a permanent presence in the Dzanga Sangha Protected Areas Complex, Central African Republic. We have also provided in-situ support in Cameroon and Republic of Congo. In Mali, we partner with Mali Elephant Project and we are supported by the Elephant Crisis Fund in Mali and the Central African Republic. Each collaboration is designed and equipped to adapt and implement each stakeholders’ mission requirement.

We also work with Kinetic Six, Scent Imprint Conservation Dogs who trained our detection dogs Mitch & Bobby and The DM Lab who offer us digital support.
