Protecting Kenya’s Amboseli Tuskers

2024-05-08T02:10:39+00:00

Kenya's unique giant tusked elephants are being killed, and it's not by poachers for their ivory. This time, it's by licensed hunters in Tanzania after trophies for their mantle pieces. WildilfeDirect is working with over 50 other conservation organizations to call on the Tanzanian President, H.E Suluhu, to ban the hunting of elephants in an area of northern Tanzania that the Amboseli elephants frequent. In the face of such challenges to our wildlife, we must amplify our efforts to protect and preserve our natural heritage.
