THE STORY:

Help us save our elephants!


Mpala ranch lies in the cross-roads of centuries-old migration corridors that are followed annually by more than 7000 elephants. On Mpala, we pride ourselves in providing a 48,000 acre safe haven for these highly social, intelligent and sentient animals. The elephants who rely on Mpala comprise the second largest elephant population in Kenya, and providing for their safety is something we take very seriously.


However, our elephants are in crisis. Illegal killing of elephants for ivory has skyrocketed: in 2012, an estimated 30,000 elephants were killed, the most in three decades. At the beginning of 2013, Tsavo East National Park witnessed the murder of 12 elephants, stripped of their tusks, the single biggest killing of elephants in Kenya in the past two decades. Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) stated that over 200 more elephants have been killed across Kenya for their ivory this year. Whereas the elephant population in the 1970s was at an estimated 167,000, it has since plummeted to only 35,000. If this trend continues, in only 10 years there will be no more elephants left in Kenya.


Help us protect our elephants by supporting our elephant security and monitoring team. Your contributions will pay for foot scouts to patrol boundaries, for fuel and maintenance of our vehicles so we can keep track of our elephant families and respond to alerts when poachers are in the region, and to gather data to keep anti-poaching activities informed and focused. Our goal is to reverse the current trend in poaching and return Laikipia to its justifiable position as an elephant safe haven.
