Regina Mundi supports the Black Mamba Anti-Poaching Unit (APU). The Black Mambas were founded in 2013 by Transfrontier Africa to protect the Olifants West Region of Balule Nature Reserve. The APU has expanded to cover the entire 400km² Balule area.
The Black Mamba APU is the first of its kind, in that the majority of the teams are women. 26 Black Mambas are deployed and a further 23 armed guards operate within Balule and along its boundaries.
See more about the Black Mambas on their Facebook page.

Rangers salaries are subsidised by SANParks through the Environmental Monitor Program, but the Black Mamba APU carries all additional costs and relies heavily on donations. Regina Mundi has anonymously supplemented the salaries and the inconsistent compensation received as a result of the ebb and flow of international donations.
