From Jacob Dadi:
When I watched the Pokot Peace Team perform some cool acrobatics at the Global March for Elephant and Rhino on 4th, I was struck by this thought: This pose shows how conservation should be working. We should work as a team knowing that we need and rely on each other in order to succeed in wildlife conservation, no one group can do conservation alone. It must involve the others to have it succeed.
The three people on the ground at the base represent the NGO’s, Government, and the Donors – they are the basis and are there to support, encourage and involve the communities. The two guys in the middle represent the community – the community that lives with and supports the wildlife. Then we have the elephant, rhino, and other wild animals above who are safe being that the community are taking care of them with the help at the base. This should be the way to go in conservation – let’s work together to support the community, and the community will take care of their wildlife! JACOB DADI
