Don't Shoot Zones

The Project To Eliminate Poaching


Don't Shoot Zones are areas where we partner with the local populations and create economic incentives to protect wildlife.  The populations in these areas benefit more from live wildlife than from the dead ones. As such the local populations themselves police the protection of the animals.   

love webHere too our benefits result from our many synergistic relations allowing us to work in a range of activities to help the local population. The activities we help the local population with ranges from light manufacturing, tourism, theme park development and a range of sustainable activities that create jobs, promote an improved lifestyle for the local population while promoting good health, safety and sustainable use of the local resources. 

According to the Economist, 100,000 elephants were slaughtered across Africa between 2011 and 2014. South Africa has by far the largest population of rhinos in the world and is an incredibly important country for rhino conservation. However rhino poaching levels have dramatically escalated over recent years. By the end of 2015, the number of African rhinos killed by poachers had increased for the sixth year in a row with at least, 1,338 rhinos killed by poachers across Africa in 2015. These statistics were compiled by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Species Survival Commission’s African Rhino Specialist Group (AfRSG). With the price of rhino horn, gram for gram, twice that of gold in places such as China, where the new wealth has seen demand soar for what is essentially a huge finger nail, they are a big payday for poachers. There is, however, a global awakening going on and the previously sleeping masses are standing and making their voices heard.


Commercial Hook

The successful models already being homegrown in many communities in Africa embody the sustainable characteristics we feel are essential to longevity bestowing prestige, fun and financial rewards on those involved in the cause. These elements are already a part of the working models which are effective.

Retail Outlets: Partner with TIGER STORES and acquire many locations worldwide to create retail outlets internationally to sell products which, in the future, can be partially produced in our DON’T CUT – DON’T SHOOT ZONES and retailed directly our stores worldwide. Though not yet explored, my intention is to approach TIGER STORES and partner with them. We will provide the financial muscle for them to rapidly expand. They will provide the know-how for us to create production hubs in DON’T SHOOT and DON’T CUT villages. This will provide quality jobs locally and plug the Remote Villages into a Sustainable Vertically Integrated Global Economic Machine.

The TIGER STORES will also serve as Communication Outposts to expose the world to our DON’T CUT and DON’T SHOOT Initiatives. They can also be used to feature cultural exchanges featuring Villagers. It also gives people in developed countries a way to support development in remote areas of Africa by supporting our TIGER DON’T SHOOT STORES.

Communication Package: We will support activities with celebrity muscle, quality posters, radio and TV advertising. We will sponsor appropriate individuals to make talk show appearances as well as to make appearances in Churches, Mosques, schools and at a wide assortment of events.

Entertainment Package: We use musicians, concerts, festivals and other cultural and entertainment opportunities to carry the message and to build a following around the concept. This will be 

designed on a case by case basis to result in maximum impact.

Funding Package: We will assist with the funding of companies and organizations fighting POACHING which meet our criteria. 

First Steps


The Global DON’T SHOOT – DON’T CUT Financing and Support Platform will respond to this challenge. The goal of DON’T SHOOT is to accelerate efforts to minimize poaching and to use the direct and indirect benefit of Wildlife Tourism to improve the health and quality of life of the people in general.

We aim to scale the effort geometrically through our funding effort, collaboration, discussions, support services and the prevention of the spread of poaching by; mobilizing € 50 - € 100 million between 2016 to 2020, by immediately attracting new external support and improving coordination of existing assistance. The need for external support is frontloaded, with tribalmixing resources progressively taking over the funding of the development assistance over a 10 year period.

Prompt initiation of external funding support creates more opportunities to plan for economic growth and capture its benefits in ways that shift countries onto trajectories toward sustainable financing, which would enable nearly 20 of the 29 countries to graduate from receiving funding by 2020 as their resource gaps close completely through combined Commercial activities in the regions and worldwide.

TRIBALMIXING acts as a pathfinder in a new era of financing for solving social challenges and development by pioneering a model that shifts away from a focus solely on official development and social assistance channels, to an approach that combines both TRIBALMIXING channels and innovative sources such as Trading Platforms for resource mobilization and delivery in a synergistic way.

Why a Global Financing Facility Is Needed:

There are signs that there is a reduction in poaching in the areas where community solutions are being incorporated. Slowing down is not enough. Total eradication of poaching is the only accepted goal. We must therefore take advantage of the slowing trend to push in the resources and assets needed to result in total eradication.

PLATFORM. This Business Plan, must be developed through an intensive, multi-­‐stakeholder collaboration. Three “frontrunner” countries – Namibia, Kenya, and South Africa – have been selected to pilot the TRIBALMIXING approach while concurrently developing the Business Plan and model, with these experiences contributing significantly to shaping the final document and approach. The TRIBALMIXING approach represents an important new platform to drive the financing and management of THE SOLUTION at the HOMEGROWN COUNTRY LEVEL and constitutes a new model, it hopes to partner with A21 and to promote the model at well attended and exposed A21 International Events in 2016 and beyond.

R.I.P.:  Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they have been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a challenge. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary.  IMPOSSIBLE  IS NOTHING !
