The Elephant conundrum

Fosteringimages

I was thrilled when the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust who takes care of Elephant orphans agreed to sell my little Eclastic Elephants at the curio shop.  I had no idea whether visitors to the orphanage on the outskirts of the capital Nairobi would like my little, coloured, handmade plastic Elephants. 

To my delight they did!

I promised to adopt Elephant orphans when I sell a fair amount of my Elephant necklaces. The sale went so well I adopted to orphans: Embu and Dupotto. Check their history out on the Sheldrick website.

I was not only so happy to adopt the two Elephants but also emotional about it. It’s a beautiful feeling to be able to help.

And i want to adopt more. When you buys the Elephant necklaces I can  help more orphans to a wonderful life.

Buy Eclastic and not Ivory!!!

We all know that poaching it’s a real problem here in Africa.

Because of the high demand from the Asian market, thousands of our Elephants get killed and mutilated every day.

This is insane and we will lose all our Elephants.

There are many organization that try to help and stop the poachers, but they cannot make it alone. They need YOU, they need us.

One of  the most known is the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a Kenyan wildlife conservation charity founded in 1977 in memory of David Sheldrick by his widow Daphne Sheldrick. It assists and advises the Kenya Wildlife Service and manages an orphanage for elephants and rhinos. This trust is reintegrating orphaned elephants back into the Kenyan wildlife, and is a World Elephant Day associate.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust embraces all measures that compliment the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife. These include anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness, addressing animal welfare issues, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, rescuing and hand rearing elephant and rhino orphans, along with other species that can ultimately enjoy a quality of life in wild terms when grown.

You can see from their website the amazing work they do.

You can buy the Eclastic product there.

For every 100 products sold we will adopt one orphan Elephant 🙂
