Friends and friends of friends who love Africa, I'm asking if you would take a look at the GoFundMe appeal I have started on behave of Photography4life's, which I am the founder of and a team member. These efforts to raise funds for Wildlife Rangers are so they can participate in new and very dynamic communications and English language courses so they can operate alongside fellow rangers across borders in their fight to save elephants. Elephants obviously don't have passports or border issues but Rangers in Tanzania need to be able to communicate well in with their Kenyan and Ugandan counterparts as well as being able to communicate on a highly efficient level used by top, mobile units. These skills, when finely tuned make a considerable difference to successful 'teamwork' across borders and/or regions, and greatly empowers the Rangers in areas of East Africa's were English is not taught at school. Elephant identification through data only really be shared and work across borders when all parties can communicate effectively together.
This appeal is to ask you to help us get 3 more Wildlife Rangers into these wonderful courses designed and managed by 'Winds of Africa,' and specifically tailored for these brave men. The most conscientious and committed, high performance Rangers are rewarded with these courses, and in doing so you are directly helping protect African elephants lives.
I will also be returning to join the Rangers I have grown to know so well, and catch up with all their news to share with you all. My trip is planned for February 2019 and a portion of this Appeal (15%) will go towards this photojournalism and my airfare to go out and rejoin the Rangers for 4 weeks. A guest videographer will be joining me. In addition, my time back with the Rangers will also be spent with their superiors - so we can plan the next stage of OPERATION GIANT STRIDES and invite some Rangers over to the United Kingdom to meet you all and share their story. Something very unique indeed.
All of the work we do is voluntarily and we receive no rewards for what we do - except for joy of doing it.
'Kenya born' this is a passion and life long commitment. As an East African passport holder and very much a 'bushbaby'' I will continue pushing to help make a lasting and empowering difference in the fight to save Africa's elephants - bringing communities and wildlife successfully together.
Thank you for your time and and kind contributions to 'Operation Giant Strides'. I will keep you posted.
Sante Kabisa (huge thanks) Coll Hogg​
