BENEFITING: BODHI TREE FOUNDATION
The Amboseli-Tsavo-Kilimanjaro ecosystem, over 2MM acres in size, harbors one of the greatest populations of elephants (1,500) left in East Africa.
Intense competition among humans, wildlife, and livestock for limited resources – especially water – creates extraordinary tension. During the dry seasons, elephants often turn to cattle watering points for water and end up in danger of being speared or poisoned. There are currently several water points that create conflict between man and elephants.
Help us fund the building of two separate watering points dedicated to wildlife to eliminate the conflict between humans and elephants and thus the incentive for retaliatory killings. Complete funding for this Big Life Foundation project would build two dedicated watering points for elephants in the area and supply both with water for one year.
