Adopt an Elephant
elephants live in Tsavo East National Park (above), Kenya,
however in 2009 271 ~ nearly 5% ~ were killed by
poachers for ivory laundering. The risks to the
elephants aren't just from internal poachers by from Somalians illegally crossing into the park to kill and
remove the animals.
With an average set of tusks netting
around £1200, a small fortune for those living in
poverty in the area, its a worthwhile trade, and a trade
that can only be countered by people like yourself who
are prepared to adopt an elephant to help protect them
Please note that the herds of elephants that
get assistance from this Adopt an Elephant gift pack
vary according to need so the current beneficiaries may
be different elephants from the ones described on this
page hopwever there is normally a choice of herds.
