Right now wild elephants are under severe attack for their tusks. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust needs a helicopter, so that they have a quick response team to hunt down poachers and bring them to justice.
I've been donating to DSW for some years and most of you know how passionate I am about saving one of Africa's basic heritages - the majestic elephants. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust raise orphaned elephants and reintroduce them back into the wild in Kenya.
I am joining Kristin Davis (Sex and the City) in this Crowdrise Campaign to raise funds for a helicopter in order to quickly respond to the sightings of poachers in action.
In recent years illegal poaching has reached a crisis level. If poaching contiunes at the curent rate, according to experts all wild elephants will be EXTINCT IN 10 YEARS! We can't let this happen! The area where the Sheldricks work is as big a small country.
DSW needs a helicopter to protect this beatiful, natural land and the animals who live there. They have trained Rangers ready. They have vets ready. We just need a way to get them there quickly to save the elephants lives. A quick responding helicopter would make a huge differance.
I hope you will join me in this campaign and choose to give up what amounts to a couple of Starbucks coffees, or a couple of lunch sandwiches.
Thanks for your consideration and contributions.
