Africa Boston donate funding Poaching Rangers Rory Young Supporters Wildlife
Those at the Hubspot event didn’t gain a great deal of marketing knowledge, but some said it was the most informative and interesting talk they attended. Josh opened the floor to audience questions at the end of their talk. People lined up behind the mic in the center isle and there wasn’t time for all of the questions.
After the INBOUND interview Josh, Rory and I, (Josh introduced me as Chengeta’s co-founder and president) collected business cards from enthusiastic professionals in a diverse range of fields from animation to exceptionally talented PR professionals who we desperately need at this point. A representative from Dropbox immediately gave Rory terabytes of free storage for his uploads from the bush and offered to share Chengeta Wildlife’s cause on Dropbox’s social media platforms. She also offered access to their business features.
Josh is keen to take an even bigger role in our organization. He is extremely intelligent, passionate about our cause and willing to dig in and work with us wherever he is needed. We welcome him wholeheartedly!
Some key team members and supporters were at our event on the 11th and we were able to engage with them in a personal way. Others joined via our live stream session (thanks Leon.) Everyone was impressed with what we have been able to achieve with so little resources and our strategies to continue to abate catastrophic wildlife poaching across Africa.
Overall, the Boston events were all I was hoping for, we attracted some incredibly talented people to help us further our cause and garnered donations so our desperately needed work in the field can continue.
For those of you who kindly offered your help, I will be connecting with you ASAP. Thank you so much for reaching out to us! 🙂

This was a great talk…really happy you guys were able to come out for the event.
It’s a great story of courage in the face of some incredibly daunting challenges, and was very, very eye-opening (especially in light of the recent surge in press around Cecil).
Thanks for all that Chengeta is doing to raise awareness and inspire hope for wildlife preservation!
Hi Seth, So glad you were there. Rory will be heading back to Malawi later this week to train another group of wildlife protectors. We hope to share some video from that training as it is uploaded, so please check back for that!
