21st Century Noah: Most Ambitious Conservation Project Ever Releases New Song with Ark4Africa in Fundraising Effort.
Our planet is dying. And we are becoming more aware of this with every passing day. In recent years, Sir David Attenborough has travelled from our screens to the Glastonbury main stage, Extinction Rebellion have ground cities to a halt and Greta Thunberg has shouted from the rooftops time and time again. We are taking more notice of recycling, and prioritising sustainable travel, but time is against us and we are in desperate need of a world-saving solution.
Of course, Extinction Rebellion and Greta alike have got our attention, but many are becoming tired of the action without any real action – and this includes Richard & Hein Prinsloo-Curson. Taking action, over the last two years, the British-South African partners have put in motion a project to save animals from extinction and to preserve and improve the world for generations to come.
Their ground-breaking project, Noah’s Ark is a state-of-the-art animal and ecological conservation park, covering 100 square kilometres on the North East coast of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa and will be the largest and most ambitious conservation project in history, with construction starting in August 2020.
Created as an action to the ecosystem crisis the planet faces and to provide a way for everyone everywhere to get involved and be part of the solution; they aim to inspire unity so humanity will work together as one to fight the eco war, protect the circle of life, and encourage governments around the world to re think their relationship with the planet and the animals that exist within it.
The park’s aquarium is set to be the biggest in the world to accommodate ocean life, whilst Eden project-like Geo Domes, built using smart glass and sophisticated climate control systems, will ensure animals from other continents can feel at home in their own ecosystems under the South African sun. The most challenging of these is the Polar Dome which needs to replicate the entire Artic Eco System, and is one of the toughest challenges facing the technology research and development teams.
We all know the original story of Noah’s Ark being in the water, but this will be an ‘ark’ on the land, where an example of all animals and plants on Earth will be preserved and conserved. The Noah’s Ark Foundation, the non-profit organization set up to manage the ark will work to support global projects which prevent deforestation, pollution, hunting and the poaching of wild animals.
Ark4Africa is releasing Its Just A Memory to help raise the funds needed to build this project. Performed by Phathiswa Magangane. Lyrics are by Nicholas Ellenbogen, music is composed by Neill Solomon and Gary Judd. The song is about the speed at which animals are being exterminated. This music is released in collaboration with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Next Music.
Available for interviews to discuss the drastic need for change, and to give an overview of the incredible work that Noah’s Ark Foundation are doing are Richard and Hein Prinsloo-Curson.
