The African Wildlife Foundation's mission is direct: to work together with the people of Africa to ensure the wildlife and wild lands of Africa endure forever. "AWF is the leading international conservation organisation focused exclusively on Africa, and for over fifty years the key to our success has been creative partnerships. In the past year we have worked with respected corporate leaders such as Disney and Starbucks, as well as smaller yet equally innovative businesses like Alex Woo jewellery and L*Space designer swimwear. These collaborations were tailored to fit the respective partner's brand and target audience and included promotion through events, the web, African Geographic Magazine and in print and e-communications distributed globally. A partnership with AWF sends a strong message about your company or brand's commitment to the environment and improving rural livelihoods in Africa. It also gives your organisation the opportunity to play a meaningful role in safeguarding awe-inspiring and threatened wildlife like rhinoceroses, lions, and elephants. Whatever your interest, our work in fourteen African countries gives your company a range of projects to choose from as a creative way to increase brand awareness, build consumer loyalty and, of course, drive incremental sales. Some exciting AWF initiatives that your company might consider supporting are shown below. Please visit www.awf.org/partners for more information on how respected companies and brands have advanced the mission of the African Wildlife Foundation while engaging the support of consumers worldwide. To discuss ways your company or brand might develop a cause-marketing partnership or sponsorship program with AWF, please contact us". Contact: Daniel McGahey.

Black Kestrel is a project to develop and build an electric powered aircraft. The project has three phases. The first phase is to develop a new type of non-fuel burning electrical generator that will provide the main power for the aircraft's electric motors. The next phase will be to convert a conventional small to medium sized propped aircraft, such as a Piper PA32 Lance, by removing its existing piston engine and replacing it with a single, brushless, high speed electric motor and reduction transmission. Once the aircraft has been certified by the CAA to fly it will undertake several test flights; when these have been completed the aircraft will fly on a round-the-world tour to show the practicality and endurance of electric powered aircraft and the electrical generators. The third phase is to design and build a new airframe. This aircraft will be built for high speed and high altitude cruise and will be powered by several high speed electric fans. It will also, once built and tested, fly on a world tour. Black Kestrel is looking for several large or small sponsors for this project. Sponsors will have their brand and logo displayed on the side of the aircraft's fuselage, as well as on the Black Kestrel website's home page, Sponsors page and Twitter page. The Black Kestrel website has a large audience and following around the world - any sponsor who has their brand and logo on the Black Kestrel website or aircraft's fuselage would have a truly global audience. For more information please visite the Black Kestrel website (see link below). Contact: Jake Quinton. Tel.: 07739 181203. E-mail:

Fractured is a short eco-thriller/buddy film about two unlikely allies, Jonie and Cara, who take a stand against a fracking company that's secretly developing a drilling site. The directors of Rocky Bay Productions believe that engaging and entertaining fiction films have enormous power to draw viewers' attention to crucial issues facing the world. "There is no doubt that fracking is a pressing environmental issue, yet many young people are not aware of its implications. This is our primary target audience. To draw in younger viewers who would not necessarily seek out documentaries on the topic, we address this serious issue through a gripping narrative, peppered with irreverent wit. To achieve our ambitious distribution goals, we will implement a hybrid distribution strategy, which combines classic and DIY models and has the potential to reach hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of viewers. Sponsorship of this film will increase brand awareness and affinity for you, your company or your organisation and help build your customer base, especially among younger consumers. We are offering your name and logo a presence in the front or end credits of the film, depending on the level of sponsorship. Together, the project stakeholders, including the young actors, have an enormous social media presence and will be a walking commercial for their sponsors wherever they go. Written by Lambert Nagle and to be directed by Virginia Pitts, Fractured will be produced by Rocky Bay Productions Ltd. Between them, the producers Alison Ripley Cubitt and Virginia Pitts, have over thirty-five years screen production experience. Their film and television productions have been selected to screen at over forty international festivals, won awards, gained theatrical release and sold widely. Award-winning cinematographer, Frank Madone, has joined the team and two brilliant young actors, Josephine Rogers and Acushla-Tara Kupe, have been cast in the main roles. Fractured is not only a standalone short film, it is also a pilot and pathway to an environmentally-focused feature film and television series. While the latter two productions will be eligible for industry funding, this is not the case for Fractured, despite the increasing popularity of shorts in the digital age. By contributing to this film, you will not only help kick-start a series of environmentally-themed dramas for screen, but be part of a broad movement working to protect the future of the planet and its inhabitants. Sponsorship is sought for both the production (late July/early August) and post-production (September-December) of the film". A full sponsorship proposal is available on request.

Following the successful use of paramotors on a major scientific expedition by the Scientific Exploration Society in the Bolivian Amazonas, it is proposed to develop the concept of using paramotors and all terrain vehicles, working together on a series of scientific projects. A small team of experts have come together to plan the ventures and they consist of the following individuals: John Blashford Snell, Scientific Exploration Society; Alex Ledger, SkySchool Flight Centre; Alan Morton, Proactive TV. The first expedition is to Botswana and the aim is to research areas of scientific interest as well as support the local community. Proactive TV have agreed to film the expeditions with the aim of placing them on either Channel 4 or the Discovery Channel. The charity Just a Drop has also agreed to support the expedition. These expeditions are clearly advantageous for either a single main sponsor or a variety of different sponsors. "We therefore propose that interested parties should contact us to discuss the options available". Contact: Alex Ledger. Address: Rams Hill Farm, Manston, Sturminster Newton, Dorset DT10 1HD.

Tiki.oneworld.org is an environmental education website with a global reach, aimed at children, schools and other educational establishments. The site, established just over fifteen years ago, is free to use and had nearly 300,000 separate users in the last year alone. This attractive website with its numerous and colourful cartoons appears at the top of Google searches for "kids' guides to climate change" and other searches related to pollution, pollution, plastics, pollution, energy, biodiversity and several more. Statistics show the site is widely used internationally, with the highest percentage of users being from the USA (37%), the UK (18%) and India (7%).     More about Tiki and his website | Tiki, a friendly penguin, cares deeply about the future of the planet. He explains the ins and outs of pressing environmental issues, as seen through the eyes of a non-human via a series of jargon-free guides, in an engaging and humorous way, appealing to both children and adults. Each guide concludes with an empowering "What kids can do" page. These guides are used as an educational resource by schools and individuals all over the world, helping our future adults gain a deeper understanding about the issues that will affect their future. Tiki's site is free for all to use. As a result, the site is chronically underfunded, receiving basic support - as it has done since its inception - from OneWorld (a non-profit UK-based organisation). Tiki's founder and producer, an earth scientist with a PhD (1970, Cambridge, UK), is looking for sponsorship to put Tiki's pages on a firm financial footing so that there can be a search for younger freelance writer(s) who can take over the reins of the website, building on its success, taking it forward into the future, where a science-based understanding of the problems caused by humans will be essential if solutions are to be found and implemented.

International Dawn Chorus Day boasts a position as one of the most enduring and popular annual environmental events on the calendar. The simple concept is of early morning gatherings to hear the dawn chorus at nature reserves, parks or other open spaces, often followed by a healthy, hearty breakfast. The history and background to this exciting event is documented on www.idcd.info, the IDCD website. Participating UK organisations include The Wildlife Trusts, RSPB, Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, National Trust, English Nature, Scottish Natural Heritage, Local Authority Ranger Services and very many more, down to small local groups. Birdwatch Ireland organises a busy programme of events in Eire. Thousands of individuals make the effort to rise early and appreciate Nature's daily miracle on International Dawn Chorus Day. Millions more get to here about the event and learn more about the need to conserve wild birds. Excellent press and media coverage was achieved, mostly in the UK, but also with a good profile in North America, Europe and elswhere in the world. The message of International Dawn Chorus Day is a simple one, allowing hundreds of organisations to raise the profile of their essential conservation work for wild birds and their habitats. The colours and sounds of wild birds make this a sponsorship opportunity well suited to multi-media promotion, especially using the web. International Dawn Chorus Day needs sponsorship support so that the organisation can encourage a greater number of event registrations; run a telephone/email support service for event organisers and help people find their local event; and also to raise the profile of the event even higher. The UK organisers also want to increase their contact with overseas event organisers, especially in Europe, North America, Australasia and Southern Africa. This is a package with great appeal for a UK-based organisation. The organisers have been able to make International Dawn Chorus Day a remarkable success - with your support, they say, it could be the biggest international wildlife event of all!

Clive Sall was a co-founder of FAT (Fashion, Architecture & Taste), Alphaville and BOB (Big Open Box). Clive Sall Architecture has been exploring the theoretical and practical relationship between branding, architecture and the urban environment, producing art projects such as Roadworks (1996), Picnic (1995) and Outpost (1993-5). The company is now offering the opportunity to sponsor a pioneering new project that seeks to challenge the perception of urban space and public art. Cart is a collaborative venture that endeavours to engage the public in an experience of art beyond the gallery, using the car, the quintessential symbol of modernity, as a canvas. "Our aim is to produce a series of 'Art-Cars', which will complete a procession through the city of London during Summer 2010. The convoy will stop at several major art institutions and events to generate a high level of publicity, whilst establishing a link between the galleries and public art. We want to take these artistic expressions outside the galleries to challenge the public perception of surroundings and make people think about their environment in an alternative way. A variety of artists, designers and architects will be commissioned to produce a series of Art-car Maquettes. Six of the Art-car Maquettes will be selected for full-scale reproduction into functioning vehicles of the same design. We require financial sponsorship for Cart, in order to cover the costs required to establish and execute our project. As this is a not-for-profit scheme, all the proceeds raised through sales will be donated to charity". Contact: Laura Diaz Ramos. Address: 2 Providence Yard, Ezra Street, London E2 7RJ. E-mail:

Luke Jerram is seeking partners for a significant public artwork. Aeolus - an Acoustic Wind Pavilion, is an ambitious new work created by UK artist Luke Jerram (
www.lukejerram.com). Aeolus was the ruler of the four winds in Greek mythology. Aeolus is a giant singing sculpture that responds to the wind, providing a wonderful audio-visual experience. It is a spectacular optical and acoustic pavilion that has been developed by Jerram and a specialist team of engineers from the University of Southampton. Fabricated in steel and the size of a small house, it is the outcome of research into Aeolian harps and sound chambers. Just like wind turbines, it relies on the wind to animate it. Aeolus is touring the UK in 2011 and will be visited by thousands, on windy hilltops and urban wastelands. Download an information pack at www.aeolus.org.uk. There are opportunities for organisations to be involved and benefit from the international profile that involvement brings. "The work already has significant funding in place and we now need support, either in cash or in kind, to take this exciting new work on tour and share it with audiences throughout the country". Contact: Carolyn Black. Address: Pervasive Media Studio, Leadworks, Anchor Square, Harbourside, Bristol BS1 5DB. Tel.: 0117 9157237. E-mail: info@lukejerram.com

The main objective of Rainforest Concern is to protect rainforests and the vast biological diversity of life they contain. At present the organisation has seven conservation projects in Costa Rica and Ecuador and works with local conservation organisations in these countries to purchase threatened rainforests for protection. The 800 hectare coastal forest reserve located on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast (and established in 1989 by the Endangered Wildlife Trust) is home to one of the most important nesting beaches for the leatherback turtle. The reserve offers protection for diverse and impressive wildlife in an area which has suffered greatly from the expansion of banana plantations. Rainforest Concern provides a volunteer programme between March and July which has attracted groups and individuals who assist in monitoring laying and hatching and protecting the beach. The organisation assists the communities living close to its projects by promoting environmental education programmes and encourage alternative forms of income generation to take the emphasis away from slash and burn agriculture. Rainforest Concern is currently seeking sponsorship support to enable it to continue and expand its work. Contact name: Fiona Dalrymple, Head of Fundraising and PR.
