Protect elephants, wildlife & wild places
Generation Awakening is proud to support this fundraiser with 100% of funds raised going to support Ulinzi Africa Foundation’s rangers where their goal is simple: To stop the illegal and unsustainable killing of wildlife in Kenya's Tana River and Delta zones.
In the last 3 months alone, our ranger teams have rescued wild animals from traps, arrested poachers and traffickers, and directly saved thousands of animals from being killed for their meat, skins or tusks.
Our continued presence and operations in this area is critical for the wildlife to survive and the communities living nearby to access assistance where possible, but we are overwhelmed and need your support this giving season.
Important species in this area include:
Elephants. The Tana River delta was once an elephant stronghold. Numbers now are estimated to be in the region of a few hundred.
Coastal Topi. The Coastal Topi is an endemic species found nowhere else. Numbers are estimated to range around 3,800 individuals that remain heavily targeted by bushmeat poachers. Our priority to is reduce and, if possible, eliminate the impact of illegal hunting, allowing the species to stabilize and recover.
Dik-Dik. The smallest antelope in Kenya, Dik-Diks pair for life, raising one young for 8-10 months. This points towards what could be an irreversible local extinction should the trend continue; with the species unable to reproduce successfully due to lack of their breeding pair partner, and also immediate loss of the next generation since many of those taken out are gestating females.
This may be the last opportunity to save these species in the wild, failure to which there would be a necessity for massive intervention measures to recover the species. We cannot afford to reach this stage. We have an opportunity to save them today. Will you help us?
