I had a fantastic evening last night saving elephants!
The big Tuskers are vitally important. Not just because of their majestic beautiful wonderful selves but because of their strong genes that need to be passed on down the generations.Despite the sombre topic, it was a fun event, with guest speakers television presenter Simon Reeve and author Tony Park sharing their tales of African wildlife encounters. Music was provided by Jono Goldthorpe. The artwork and photography of Bobby-Jo Clow, Dawie Fourie, Yang Africa, Little Black Swan Art and Federico Veronesi was raffled and auctioned off to raise the much needed funds.
One elephant is killed every 15 minutes. Every 15 minutes! All to feed some people’s insatiable desire for their teeth.Small initiatives like the The Askari Project and Animal Works are 100% volunteer run which means 100% of the profits go to support their conservation projects. They will not stop fighting to protect these beautiful animals that deserve to be here.
