March for Elephants in the US

Written by Cynthia Moss

Ivory Belongs to the Elephants

 One of our Kenyan conservation heroes, Jim Nyamu, will be traveling to the U.S. to lead a march from Boston to Washington, DC to create awareness about the plight of Africa's elephants.

The march will start on September 3 and Jim will be speaking at several venues along the way. Jim, who heads an NGO called Elephant Neighbors, has already walked hundreds of miles for elephants in Kenya. He has a commitment and passion that are remarkable.

We [] would like to ask you to support Jim on his long march. One thing you can do is join him on part of the march. He is also looking for people to host him along his way, and any financial assistance would be welcome as well. Walking long distances can be very lonely, especially in a foreigh land, so if you can help him feel welcome and at home, that would be appreciated.
