BENEFITING: Tusk

EVENT DATE: Sep 15, 2011

THE STORY:

Tusk is raising money to relocate endangered Grevy Zebra to Ruko Conservancy on the shores of Lake Baringo in northern Kenya. A traditional home to several endangered species, 2010 saw 8 Rothschild Giraffe, a sub-species that have not existed in their native area of Lake Baringo for over 70 years, finally brought home.

The Ruko Community Wildlife Trust, established several years ago, has successfully brought together the Pokot and Njemps tribes who traditionally had been at odds with one another. Now working together at two eco lodges within the conservancy, both tribes are careful to rotate livestock and use water wisely to accommodate the resident wildlife.
 

Ruko Conservancy needs $10,000 to complete this operation, which includes the costs of moving the Grevy Zebra, as well as uniforms and rations for four rangers to watch over them, and operating and maintenance costs for the rangers' vehicle.
