There is a team working hard in Malawi and it’s paying off as the elephant population continues to grow each year.
From almost zero to over 140!
Lynn and her team of ranger scouts protect these forgotten elephants in the Thuma Forest in Malawi. Not too many years ago the elephants were all gone as the surrounding population kept pressing in on their home.
For the last few years Lynn and her team have changed much of this. They stop the elephant poaching for their ivory and the tree poaching to fuel the charcoal industry.
Lynn and her team of ranger scouts. Aren’t they a grand looking bunch?
Last three elephant counts
Directly from Lynn this month…
In 2013 we conducted our first animal count. Look how the numbers have risen since then!
The number of elephants are as follows:
- 2013 = 98
- 2015 = 116
- 2017 = 140
We know there are more! Just we did not see them the particular day of the count.
This is really good news!
Your support is very much part of this success story. Without you, I believe this would be a very different sad story.
