It is now very dry in Tsavo and water has become a very precious commodity because there is a shortage of water due to lack of rain. We are not expecting any rain until March and this has got us all very worried of loosing many animals from antelopes to elephants if nothing is done very urgently.
Some years back we lost many animals including elephants due to a prolonged drought. Elephants are becoming endangered from poaching and we need to save the ones we have left by providing water for them until the drought peril is over. We have many elephants concentrating in very few water holes fighting to drink water and this has made the smaller elephants lacking water. They become very thirsty and they end up spending a lot of time and energy walking very far distances with young ones searching for water.
We are asking for people to stand with these elephants until this period is over, that is before it rains.
We will be renting water trucks to deliver 12,000 liters of water at least 4 trips a week. The distance is 45 Kilometers to where water would normally be to save these animals and we will distribute it to 2 different locations to ease the congestion. Remember it is not only elephants we will be saving. Each tank will cost $250USD. Every donation no matter the size is greatly appreciated and thank you for your support.
I have asked Cher Callaway from our US support staff to help me with this project. You may contact either of us with any questions you may have.
