    Story

    I am adding to my racing:

    10th June is the BUBBLE RUSH, a NEW 5k fun run with a difference – thousands of multi-coloured bubbles! Bursting into Oxford on Sunday

    Hello Everyone

    I hope you are reading this because you want to help. Raise money to help protect our beautiful animals. I am doing two triathlons in June:

    9th June Silver Fun Triathlon: 100m swim - 4km cycle - 2000m run

    23rd June Silver Fun Triathlon: 100m swim - 4km cycle - 2000m run

    I am training really hard running 2 miles, swimming 1250m and cycling 3 miles around Churchill / Kingham loop with nasty steep hills a week

    (not to mention my football and cricket matches). Also I have written a book with 10,000 words that I am selling.

    PLEASE HELP ME RAISE MONEY TO PAY AND SUPPORT ARMED PARK RANGERS for The Ol Pejeta Conservancy

    In our lifetime, we could live in a world with no elephants, rhinos, or gorillas list goes on if we don't help. 3 rhinos a day are killed in South Africa alone!

    The numbers are horrific: around 20,000 African elephants are killed by poachers each year, and there was over a 9,000% increase in rhino poaching in South Africa.

    Three-quarters of African lion populations are in decline. With only around 20,000 in the wild, they’re now officially classified as ‘vulnerable’.

    Trophy hunting and poaching has to STOP

    PLEASE HELP ME RAISE MONEY TO PAY AND SUPPORT ARMED PARK RANGERS.

    Without rangers, we’d have lost the fight for our elephants, rhinos, and other wildlife long ago. But we’re still losing these majestic creatures at alarming rates

    Supporting an armed ranger means you are directly contributing to security efforts. It costs around $850 per rhino, per month to keep our black, white and northern white rhino safe. Our dedicated armed ranger teams work long hours, often putting their lives on the line for the animals they have come to know and respect. They need all the help they can get in the front line against poaching.

    Ol Pejeta’s mission to safeguard vulnerable species extends far beyond black rhino and chimpanzees. Other vulnerable or endangered species that live here include elephant, African wild dog, cheetah, lion, leopard, hippo, Grevy’s zebra and the locally threatened Jackson’s hartebeest.

    Extinct in the Wild

    The northern white rhino is a subspecies of white rhino, which used to range over parts of Uganda, Chad, Sudan, the Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Years of widespread poaching and civil war in their home range have devastated northern white rhino populations, and they are now considered to be extinct in the wild. Only two remain, both on Ol Pejeta Conservancy.

    The Ol Pejeta Conservancy holds some of the highest predator densities in Kenya. The lions are the most numerous of our big cats, with six resident prides bringing the total lion population to 72. The Conservancy is also home to around 30 cheetah, and 20 elusive leopard. Spotted hyena (population around 100), black-backed jackal, caracal and the bat-eared fox can also be found here. Regular sighting of two packs of African wild dogs on Ol Pejeta, totalling 33 individuals. This is a promising sign for Laikipia as numbers of this endangered species continue to decline.

    (Loxodonta africana)

    The African elephant is the largest land mammal on earth, but these gentle giants are listed as vulnerable by IUCN due to widespread poaching for their ivory. Elephants have a complex social structure, and live in herds led by a matriarch, or dominant female. Traditionally, they follow seasonal migration patterns, travelling huge distances to find food and water. As such, there is no resident population of elephants on Ol Pejeta, but there can be up to 300 at any one time.

    The Conservancy has incorporated wildlife corridors within its northern boundary fence to ensure migratory animals like elephants can move safely out of Ol Pejeta to the greater Laikipia/Samburu ecosystem. These innovative corridors allow free movement of all species on the Conservancy except for rhinos.

    One of Ol Pejeta’s key pillars is its work and impact in the surrounding communities through support to education, agriculture and livestock enterprise. In addition to this, the Conservancy extends services in healthcare, sustainable energy and community enterprise initiatives. Ol Pejeta invested US$650,000 across its neighbouring communities through these development initiatives, improving the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of people.

    Hello Deven,

    Thanks for nominating Ol Pejeta Conservancy to join JustGiving.

    At the moment only charities registered in Australia, Hong Kong, UAE, South Africa, Canada, USA and Ireland are able to join JustGiving.

    Unfortunately, this means at the current time Ol Pejeta Conservancy would not be eligible to join as a charity member.

    As an alternative, we recently launched a new crowdfunding tool which allows anyone to raise money for a good cause online so you could use this for your fundraising.
