Read this very informative article about the devastating effect that bushmeat hunting is having on the African wildlife.
Lori has been on been on an anti-snaring campaign out in the bush on foot and she said that it is so heartbreaking to remove up to 100 snares a day and know that if they didn’t remove them, they would stay there until they killed something. The photo here is of Burra, the baby elephant with a snare around his neck that would have killed him if it wasn’t for the hard work of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust staff and whose initial care was funded entirely by Amara.
Amara is going to do desnaring work around the Tsavo West National Park next week with the KWS and I hope to get out there myself to lend a hand. If you’re interested in lending your support, please visit the donate page to see what you can do.
Thank you so much.
