@Regrann @tpw_foundation - News from Paula Kahumbu ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ "Dear Friends, We R thrilled to tell you that yesterday the Kenya Wildlife Service announced that only 47 #elephants have been poached in Kenya this year. Last year the figure was 86. This is a massive decline of nearly 90% in five years from 384 in 2012. Kenya is the only country in Africa that can boast such a success. We strongly believe that this can be attributed to our strategic approach to raising this tragic issue of elephant poaching to the highest level of government which translated into massive reforms and improvements in anti-poaching, prosecutions, and penalties through changes in the law. While many organizations have been involved, WildlifeDirect was at the helm of declaring the situation a disaster, and pushing them through the legal and regulatory reforms. We also created national interest and awareness through the media, national events, and running two television series NTV Wild and NTV Wild Talk to create public interest in our spectacular wildlife heritage. An Ipsos survey confirms that today more than 70% of Kenyans know that elephants are in trouble and this information is attributed largely to our media outreach and educational efforts. NTV Wild and NTV Wild Talk are the main source of information about wildlife for Kenyans today reaching 29% of Kenyans - double that of Nat Geo. I cannot tell you how proud we are of these achievements. But elephants are not yet safe because incidents of human elephant conflict are escalating and more elephants are now dying due to retaliation than ever before. Once again we must nip this problem in the bud which is why we are spearheading efforts to develop legal, social and technical innovations to confront this challenge with the same vigor that we took on the poaching crisis. I hope that you will once again support our phenomenal team of dedicated, and passionate staff at WildlifeDirect who are committed to making sure that elephants are safe wherever they are.
