Fantastic work by our friend @amivitale and @davematthewsband who is taking a stand for elephants and community conservation!
Repost from @amivitale:
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.” Dave Matthews Band is taking a stand for the elephants and for community based conservation. Watch this new video of Dave and his incredible song “Mother of Africa” at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary Community United for Elephants - and then make a $10 contribution to support the sanctuary, and enter to win a chance at a luxury safari to Kenya and see Dave in concert at http://prizeo.com/elephants. 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, Inc.
Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. The sanctuary provides a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild. Reteti operates in partnership with Conservation International who provide critical operational support and work to scale the community-centered model to create lasting impacts worldwide.
Please share to help get the word out!
Film by Ami Vitale, Dane Henry and Brett Lowell.
