Kenya. – One elephant is poached every 15 minutes for its ivory. A harsh reality. 

For Africa Month I talked to Expresso Morning Show – SABC 3 about my time spent in Kenya, my visit to the David Shedrick Wildlife Trust elephant orphanage and the good work that they are doing. 

The problems with elephant poaching in Central Africa and the vulnerability of the orphans left behind remains a great challenge. Ironically as much as humans are their greatest enemy, they too remain the greatest hope in saving these precious animals. 

If you can, please consider adopting a baby elephant in support of their dedicated work. It’s only US$ 50 per year and makes for a heartfelt gift. Read more here. #WhyILoveKenya
