We tell the ongoing story of the elephant poaching crisis in Kenya, and the threat of elephants throughout Africa. We hear from Julius an elephant keeper at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust orphan’s nursery in Nairobi, and Nick Trent, DSWT’s pilot working together with The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) in Kenya’s massive Tsavo National Park. At the current rate of elephants being slaughtered for their ivory it is forecasted that we could see the end of wild elephants across Africa in less than a decade.
The time to act is now – and there is so much we can do.

Begin by getting involved here: iWorry.org. A campaign of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT)
iWorry is organizing marches around the world to urge world leaders to stop the poaching, stop the trade and stop the demand. To press for a complete ban on the international and domestic trade in ivory, to invest more resources into wildlife protection at a field level, and to strengthen penalties for those involved in the ivory trade and to heighten security at ports and borders and to invest in educational efforts to stop the demand for ivory.
You can help too by donating online to support the orphans rehabilitation process and the anti-poaching efforts of DSWT.
