Over and Above Africa
Over and Above Africa was created after Founder, Kerry David attended a Los Angeles fundraiser for elephants that outlined the total devastation poaching and the human/animal conflict (population growth pushing animals into smaller and smaller areas) is having on Africa's vulnerable wildlife. The presentation was informative and beautiful, it had been filmed from a drone flying high over Africa's unique landscape effectively protecting the animals below - that's how we got our name "Over and Above Africa" but the visuals were devastating. As an animal advocate, she had no idea how dire the situation was but was struck by the idea that raising global funds through micro financing to support the people and organizations she had met while researching in Africa could be of great service. What makes us unique is that we then film the funds we donate to each project and create mini-documentaries for you, our Over and Above Family. We feel this is something that empowers our donors and members to share with friends and family to further the message that these animals and communities need our help.
Over and Above Africa’s team share a mutual vision that many of the challenges these animals face can be addressed with a global community's awareness and involvement

When you donate, we allocate your generous support to where it’s needed most, which changes periodically. If you donate monthly, you automatically become a member of our Over and Above family and receive regular updates and a video of each finalized project.
We also accept one-time donations. We try to make the process of supporting us as easy as possible so that you can support the wildlife and local communities in Africa who guard our beloved animals.
We are implementing short- and long-term strategies to prepare for and mitigate the social, economic impacts on wildlife caused by the spread of COVID-19. Despite these very challenging times, our mission, core values, and vision for our partners in Africa will stay the same.
