Amara Conservation joins forces with Elephant Neighbors Center
Jim Justus Nyamu let us know that he was planning a Walk for Elephants in Tsavo. He invited us to meet with him, and as we already work in all the areas he wanted to visit, we planned the route and assisted him with meeting all the necessary people.
Jim has been doing these walks in various places for a year now, including from Boston to NYC last year, and has a walked planned in California later this year. His goal is to gain more attention for the plight of elephants. Our partners Wildlife Works generously agreed to fund the fuel for our vehicle.
If Jim's actions can gain more attention for the importance of the work we do in communities, we are happy to support him. As it turns out, Jacob has become the spokesman while they walk through communities with a loudspeaker on top of the Classic Safaris vehicle.
Jim and he speak at stationary meetings. Jacob has been inspired to walk every step along with Jim, for conservation is his passion, not just his job! Peter Towett is working hard keeping the car going and keeping us informed of their progress. GO TEAM AMARA!
