BENEFITING: The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust USA
scott kinum wrote -Marci and I are participating in this run in central park. While it would be great if you just donate money, we are looking to get people involved in a fun run on a fall Saturday. We will be organizing drinks at a bar afterwards for those who join the run or who just want to meet up. WALKERS AND KIDS welcome. Feel free to invite whoever you want to the team to join in Funds benefit the Daphne Sheldrick trust in Nairobi Kenya which raises orphaned elephants and releases them back into the wild. Most of the elephants end up there via human conflict such as poaching of their parents or falling down water wells etc.. We have personally visited twice and if you are ever in Nairobi its a must do. They also use funds to send out anti poaching teams including recently training dogs to combat the slaughter of elephants for ivory.
