Why get involved?
We can all help the Wildlife of the Serengeti. There are many Charities and Agencies working towards this common goal.
However, we think we have a different approach. Rather than policing the borders with the animals and dealing with the aftermath of the animals being killed for Ivory, we have focused on prevention.
As a small charity, we can move quickly and effectively. We can create projects to prevent the need to poach and reduce the animal deaths.
If we have more funds to operate, we can prevent more animals being killed for their ivory. It’s that simple really.
African wildlife is still being killed for their ivory, despite CITES setting up a ban on all international trade.
It is estimated that there was over 5 million elephants in Africa, 100 years ago.By 2006, it is understood that there approximately 470,000 remaining!
Here are some staggering facts and figures that show how just the ivory trade has had a devastating effect on the decline of the African Elephant.
