BENEFITING: ESCAPE FOUNDATION

EVENT DATE: Jun 24, 2013

THE STORY:

Mara Elephant Project - Rapid Response Unit

Dr. Asuka Takita and Raabia Hawa are two passionate wildlife conservationists of Asian descent that are embarking on a 600km walk to raise raise awareness and funds for elephants, rhinos and lions.

Dr. Asuka Takita - Asuka will be starting her 300km trek from the Chinese neighborhood in Hurlingham (Nairobi), passing by KWS HQ to Oloololo gate of Mara Triangle (Western part of Masai Mara National Reserve). Asuka's walk will pass through Ngong, Suswa, Naikara, Loita, Siana, Olkinyei, Aitong Mararienda and Oloololo.

Raabia Hawa - Rabbia will be starting her 350km trek from the TANAPA (Tanzania National Parks) headquarters in Arusha ( Tanzania), she will pass through the Arusha National Park and make her way to the border at Namanga (Kenya).  She will proceed through various community conservancies along the route heading to the Nairobi National Park lion dispersal area (which is also a heavy lion conflict area) in Kitengela.  She will complete her walk at the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) headquarters in Nairobi.

Elephant poaching across the African continent is reducing the population by 10% annually.

In 2012, the Masai Mara ecosystem alone lost 139 elephants to poaching. This level of off-take is ecologically unsustainable and experts fear that elephants could be wiped off the face of the earth in the next ten years if drastic measures are not taken to control the ivory market and subsequent poaching.

We currently have a long-term, Elephant Tracking Project and one Quick Response Unit, comprising of on-the-ground rangers, to protect elephants and patrol for poachers - to secure a future for elephants in the greater Mara Ecosystem.

Funds raised will be directed towards adding and additional rapid response unit, so that the rangers can cover greater area for elephant protection.

We need your help to expand the rapid response unit to provide greater security for the Mara elephants! Please make a contribution and share this page with your friends and family. All contributions are tax deductible.
