Ethiopian Airlines: Pioneers In African Wildlife Conservation…

On the 20th of March 2015 Ethiopia burnt its entire 6.1-ton ivory stockpile at the Gulele Botanical Garden, close to the headquarters of the Ethiopian Wildlife Conservation Authority (EWCA.) This bold action meant that Ethiopia effectively joined other African countries like Kenya, Cameroon, Congo-Brazzaville and Malawi in the fight against Ivory Trade and elephant poaching.

Here in Nairobi, we at Africans For Elephants were honored to partner up with Ethiopian Airlines and raise funds for elephant conservation projects.

The first event was the Africans For Elephants Inaugural Fundraising Ball which was held in Village Market, Nairobi in October 2016. The event raised 22,000 USD for The Walk With Rangers Initiative and David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

We look forward to joining forces with more like minded and progressive companies like Ethiopian Airlines who share our passion in wildlife conservation in our goal of supporting elephant conservation projects.
