URGENT! DROUGHT IMPACTS INTENSIFYING! ELEPHANTS and other wildlife dropping DEAD! Landscape strewn with carcasses.

One of the worst droughts to ever hit East Africa is wiping out Kenya’s elephants at a staggering rate. The cracked and parched landscape is barren, but for the decomposing carcasses of these once-magnificent animals. They dropped dead after searching in vain for water sources that no longer exist. Dehydrated and depleted, elephants die, utterly exhausted – further devastating a species already beset by habitat loss, poaching and human interference.

The drought in Kenya has killed hundreds of elephants, along with buffaloes, zebras, giraffes, and other animals. We provided temporary waterholes last year, but because of the increasing severity of the drought and the vast areas involved

…we MUST get more water to the elephants of Kenya and do so FAST!
Please, will you help us?

Kenyan elephant populations face severe and mounting threats. Throughout the country, charcoal burners are destroying forests and, in the process, elephants’ habitats. Then elephants wander into human-occupied spaces to find food and, as a result, are often injured or killed.

The drought is the worst in the region in more than 40 years
and shows no signs of abating.

With each passing day, more parched animals are dropping dead, like the sad story of Monsoon, the matriarch elephant…

“Monsoon,” the miracle elephant, survived being shot FIVE times by poachers and even managed to give birth after her ordeal. A drought in northern Kenya killed her last month.

Animals like Monsoon are dropping dead beside dried-up water pans and nonexistent pastures. We cannot afford to lose wildlife in these staggering numbers. We have a plan to help, but we need YOUR support right now.

Young calves and elderly elephants are the first to die, their bodies unable to withstand long periods of dehydration. If herds lose their calves, elephant numbers will begin to diminish – along with our hopes for the species.

We MUST get water to the parched plains of Kenya, and we must do it FAST.

We promise with your support to bring life-saving water to the region’s elephants and other battered wildlife. With your support today, we will be able to send in trucks of water to meet the animals’ immediate and urgent need for water and drill boreholes to help reach vital water sources beneath the ground.

Catastrophic drought is claiming elephant lives in alarming numbers. We must rush water to elephants dying of thirst. If we can raise $20,000 (£18,074), we can construct live-saving water troughs and repair and install new boreholes for the wildlife of Kenya. We are ready to build – but we need your support today. Please, can we count on you?

Saving animals and the planet,

 

Typically thought of as “bad guys”, vultures (who are heading towards EXTINCTION) are actually quite the opposite - they play a crucial role in stopping the spread of deadly diseases!

P.S. Experts predict the drought will last well into 2023, if not beyond. That’s at least another year, or longer, with NO WATER for the elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, zebras and other vulnerable and endangered wildlife of Africa. Once they are gone, they are gone. With wildlife everywhere facing worsening threats to their existence, we cannot afford to ignore the plight of these keystone species. We must do everything we can to help save their lives today. Please help us rush life-saving water to the animals right now!
