TARA is excited to announce the launch of a two-year collaboration with the Prince Claus Fund. Uniting their resources, both partners are committed to quickly respond to emergency situations concerning African rock art heritage and over this period approximately 7 projects will be selected that will not only have a direct and profound impact mitigating damages but can also serve as examples in the field of rock art preservation. This builds on previous successful projects that TARA and the Prince Claus Fund have collaborated on, including the protection of the amazing life-size Dabous giraffe in Niger and recently discovered rock art sites threatened by mining in Kisii, Kenya.
The Prince Claus Fund was established in the Netherlands in 1996 as a tribute to Prince Claus’s dedication to culture and development. The Fund believes that culture is a basic need and the driver of development.
