The Greatest African Elephant Expedition: 10 000 kms, 10 countries, R1 000 000 goal

Elephant Ignite Expedition – Women for Wildlife

10 000 Kilometers | 10 Countries | ONE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY.

The Elephant Ignite Expedition 2016, a proud Blue Sky Society Trust Initiative, is a catalyst for connecting individuals, communities, animals and the environment with the focus on conservation awareness and education.
30, 000 elephants are killed annually. That means one every 15 minutes. For the first time in the world, an intrepid group of women explorers, have decided to bring the global spotlight on the plight of these gentle creatures and the people who protect them by embarking on an epic expedition across Africa.

The Elephant Ignite Expedition departs on International Women’s Day on the 9th August 2016. The team will visit organisations dedicated to the preservation of Africa’s elephants – assisting with much-needed funding support, public awareness, community upliftment & youth conservation education – a journey with a purpose!

The woman taking part in this expedition will be funding their OWN journey so any funds raised through this campaign (minus the costs of the perks and postage) will go to the Elephant Projects below that we have chosen.

Elephant Ignite Expedition Beneficiaries

The Elephant Ignite Expedition is aiming to raise R1 000 000 in funding. All proceeds go towards supporting the following incredible beneficiaries:

Besides providing much-needed funding to these dedicated organisations, we have some incredible perks to make your contribution even more special!

  • Youth conservation education
  • Community upliftment
  • Fundraising support for the non-profit organisations working to protect the elephants

The Impact Your Contribution Could Make:

Spread the Word and Get Involved

Exorbitant and growing global demand for ivory, particularly in Asia & the US, is fuelling a poaching crisis! The demand for ivory is largely for trinkets, carvings, and status symbol purchases. Sadly, less than a third of consumers are aware elephants are being killed to harvest this ivory.

This thriving trade is big business for large criminal syndicates, riddled with corruption, failing legal systems, porous borders and less-than-scrupulous customs practices – all of which pushes the African Elephant towards extinction!

Please join me and become part of the solution. Go out there and tell people what is happening to our animals. If you see an organization that you think is doing good work – support them. They are always looking for volunteers. If you are in a good financial place – donate money , if you cant donate money donate your skills or time. Help spread the messages through social media. There is ALWAYS something you can do.

Stand up and speak out for those animals that have NO voice.  WE have to do something and we have to do something NOW.

Share this campaign on social networks, and to friends and family across the globe. Together WE can make a difference.
