Save The Elephants – Light A Fire
In a bid to save the biggest of our big five animals, several International Leaders and Conservationists are expected to arrive in Nairobi this weekend to witness the burning of 105 tonnes of ivory and 1.35 tonnes of rhino horn. There are about 25,000 tusks which loosely translates to about 12,500 poached elephants.
On social media, there has been significant hype building up momentum towards this historic event with #worthmorealive and #lightafire trending all week.
Kenya Wildlife Service has been very vocal.
Dr. Paula Kahumbu, the CEO at WildlifeDirect has been vocal in the campaign against ivory trade and welcomes all the support offered

Take a stand and join our fellow citizens in saving our country’s most treasured Big 5 animals.
