The Deadly and Difficult Situation in Myanmar

As many of you probably know, the current political climate in Myanmar has become deadly. Civil war is imminent. The military regime is indiscriminately killing women and children and have imposed restrictions on the people that are worse than the world has seen. The future is bleak for the country and the amazing people that live there. We are very concerned and worried about the safety and well-being of all the people we have been fortunate to work with over the years in trying to protect the country’s elephants – from filming our documentary to building fences to help bring an end to human elephant conflict. But not only are the people hurting, the elephants are losing critical help they need to survive. 

Because of the current situation, we no longer have the ability to pursue our activities in the country. We will continue to monitor the situation and will keep you apprised of what is happening. We are evaluating our options as to where best to focus our efforts but for now we will work to promote our documentary The Linesman as well as our line of kid’s books that are in development that will help the world understand the challenges elephants are facing with human-elephant conflict. 

Thank you for all your help and support and I hope that we will be able to provide additional information about Myanmar, as well as where we are refocusing our efforts, in the very near future.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

All the best.
