Singing for elephants - you might win a trip to Africa: My colleague and friend @amivitale, in collaboration with the @davematthewsband, recently produced this video about the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), a remarkable community run conservation initiative I’ve visited , documented and admire immensely. Ami and Dave teamed up to help this conservation model and orphaned elephants survive. While the UK is introducing one of the world's toughest ivory bans, and China, Hong Kong and Taiwan are strengthening their own bans, the US is taking steps backwards, to ease the import of so called “elephant trophies.” The Dave Matthews Band decided to take a stand for the elephants and wrote the song “Mother of Africa” at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary. If you make a $10 contribution to support the sanctuary, you are entered to win a chance at a safari to Kenya and see Dave in concert with @prizeo (more info in bio). Not only will you be helping care for baby elephants, you’ll also be entered to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. The first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by Elephant Gems (@elephantgems). Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa.
