Two months ago, dozens of elephants began residing in the area of Sadhana Forest Kenya. Interestingly, they are a different herd than those who occasionally pass by. It is suspected that they have come from far away due to the devastating drought continuing to afflict East Africa. We are currently experiencing the third failed rainy season in a row and there is zero precipitation predicted for the foreseeable future. This drought has come only three years since the previous one, whereas historically, drought cycles were 5-7 years. These jeopardizing effects of climate change make our work far more challenging and prove how critical it is that we carry on towards the goal of long-term food security for Samburu.
We focus on fostering a balanced co-existence with our new (respectably hulking, but lovable) elephant neighbours, continue to deliver 18,000 litres of water daily to people, provide free phone charging and additional water through the taps at our center, and of course, plant and care for drought-resistant food-bearing trees.
