The Desert Elephants Trust Cause

Elephants and also Desert-adapted Elephants, in Namibia, do not enjoy any special protection under Namibian law. If they did, we may have been able to save Voortrekker, aka the Old Man.   We are in the process of establishing a Trust, which will be the governing body for this purpose.
