Help Sponsor Mara Elephant Rangers

For the full month of December 2020, we ran a Go Fund Me for Mara Elephant Project to assist them in providing for an additional 10 rangers in the Masaai Mara, Loita region, in Kenya. We are so pleased to say we exceeded our goal of $3,000 to reach $3,250.
We would like to thank everyone for their thoughtful donations and support during a very difficult year for so many conservation organizations that suffered from a lack of tourism and funding due to the pandemic. By contributing to our GFM your donations to the Mara Elephant Project has enabled them to hire the additional rangers that they so desperately need.
We thank you again for your generosity and kindness.
