In September our team went up to a remote place in the desert to check on the situation there… somebody told us the giraffe were in trouble… and they could be right… we need to help them out…
THIS HAS TO STOP NOW… Although this place is further north of our area of coverage, (Although Milgis has no borders as we migrate with the pastoralists, and the wildlife ).. ‘ the giraffe’ are in big trouble in the world and we can’t put our blinkers on pretending its not happening or its NOT our responsibility..
this photo above takes me back to when I first arrived in the Milgis to find the Elephants on the run.. Never a moment of peace… and always looking over their shoulders in case of trouble… I am so happy to say this is NOT the case now and the elephants live in peace.. SO THE GIRAFFE NEED THE SAME PROTECTION!!
Hot and thirsty country, and these animals are surviving with NO water!! its incredible… cheetah are also plentiful..
Our scout in the desert, nick name ‘Korole’ insisted that the team from Milgis met the Gabra people who were just north of this amazing wildlife ‘sanctuary’ … It was a very friendly meeting..
We will be making regular trips up to this beautiful remote area to make sure the giraffe are safe and if things don’t improve we will leave a team, to work with KWS to catch the culprits.. If any one would like to support this small extension of our work, we would be very grateful..
I will send Tusk £10,000 on Monday asking them to forward it to the Milgis Trust minus whatever small fraction they normally retain. For the anti poaching patrol, or whatever you judge most important.
Hope you and Pete and your very extended family are well despite the sorry state of our world
With warmest best wishes
