David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

All the elephant orphans raised by the Trust are gradually rehabilitated back into the wild elephant community of Tsavo National Park when grown, a transition that is made at their own pace and in their own time, but usually taking approximately eight to ten years. A number of our ex Nursery orphans have now had wild born young which they have brought back to show their erstwhile human family, and others are now pregnant and living free, yet keeping in touch with those who are still Keeper dependent. Amongst these are many orphaned too young to have any recollection of their elephant mother or family.

The success of our Orphans’ Projects is due to the assistance of many organizations and individuals but particularly to the support of the Trust’s Fostering Programme. We thank all who have fostered one or more of the elephant orphans and particularly those who have donated more than the mandatory $50 a year to do so at a time when extra funding is needed most.

CHEETAH CONSERVATION BOTSWANA

Community outreach teams from CCB travel throughout the countryside to farms, cattle posts and villages to survey and investigate incidents of conflict between cheetahs and their human neighbors.  Through studying these encounters of threatened or actual livestock predation, CCB is able to map “hot-spots” and learn which stock management techniques were in use so that new measures, both more effective and predator-friendly, can be devised.



WILDLIFE TOURISM BOND

Kenya to launch investment bonds for wildlife and conservation

Funds from the new wildlife investment bonds will be used to improve infrastructure for tourists and also help conservation projects for wildlife.  The KWS hope to raise enough funds to improve road networks that currently are closed regularly due to flood. It also aims to establish eco-lodges and help expand on community led conservation ranches. Part of the funds will also be directed at national park security systems to improve anti-poaching systems.
