Story

Thank you for visiting our wedding gift page! We want to help Keith out and get involved with Wildlife Works.

Keith runs aerial daily patrols for Wildlife Works to support the 85+ ranger force on the ground to try and stop and prevent elephant poaching from happening. Aerial surveillance is one of the most effective means of reducing wildlife crime and is needed now more than ever in the effort to curb elephant poaching. Aerial support is vital for the rangers on the ground because it can cover larger areas in shorter amount of time and reach the problem areas in time to save wildlife or stop illegal activities such as illegal charcoal burning and logging which pose a great threat to the future of the environment.

Elephants are disappearing at the staggering rate of 1 every 15 mins. Change, rather than help, is needed, which is why we are not asking you to donate to a charity, but instead asking you to support a business model implemented by Wildlife Works that delivers unprecedented environmental and social benefits to seriously impoverished parts of Africa that are in desperate need of change.

If you are interested to know more we encourage you to watch the Netflix serial-doc called The Ivory Game produced by Leonardo di Caprio filmed and focused on Wildlife Works and its land, exposes the chilling reality of the ivory trade from the planes of Africa to the streets of China.

We have set up this page, and we are encouraging anonymous donations because it’s not about the amount here and we cannot stress this enough. We are truly over the moon that each one of you has made such an effort to join us in Kenya and we do not want to ask for any gifts.

We are a really small group of people, but together we make a collective and even the tiniest of donations can bring a big change. We hope to show this to you.

    When I met Michael at Windhoek airport, after refusing his offer to buy me a coffee, we chatted for hours while waiting for the other volunteers and one thing was obvious from the beginning, besides our exhausted travelling faces; our mutual love for wildlife and conservation.
