New Chances for Wildlife
This new year brings new hope for Africa’s elephants. At the beginning of this year, China announced it would officially end it’s ivory trade by the end of the year. As the number one market for ivory, this development has the potential to slow down the ivory trade, which has caused the elephant population to decrease by 30% in the last 7 years to just over 350,000 worldwide. That may sound like a lot elephants, but a far cry from the the estimated 18 million that roamed the continent in the 1800’s.
2017 brings the start of my third year as a Wildlife Ambassador leading safaris to Africa. Your support and encouragement has been wonderful and I couldn’t have done it without you. I’m departing this week for our Big Cat Safaris in Kenya. In the middle of the summer is the Annual Migration Safari, and later in the Fall there is a Tanzania trip in the works. 2018 looks to be even busier. If you’re thinking about a safari in the future or want to learn more about the safari experience or just have general questions, please don’t hesitate to call.

Our most recent safari was to Kenya to admire the great elephants of Tsavo National Park, the endangered rhinos of Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the unique ecosystem of Samburu and the Masai Mara for the Great Annual Migration. Below is a sampling of photos from that safari. To see more photos from our trip, check out the “Recently Added” tab on our website.
I’m working on a new informative website that should be completed in the first half of the year.
