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 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.

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.
