Working in Nigeria
Working in Nigeria

Hello from Nigeria!

Thank you all again for your continued support.  Our efforts are progressing, but as expected, working with some of the potential host governments has been slow because of internal country specific issues like the Rohynga humanitarian crisis in Myanmar. However, we are scheduled to visit Myanmar later this year to sign our Letter of Intent (LOI) allowing us to move forward with implementing our project.

Additionally, we have begun working in Nigeria to help protect the 350 elephants they have left whom are dangerously in imperil of being gone within the next few years. They are the forgotten elephants and we hope to help change that!

A longer update to follow once I return from Nigeria.

All the best,

Dane

Thank you for your very generous support!

Our goal when we started The Elephant Project was to bring free market solutions to elephant conservation efforts. But our initial obstacle was finding the right country to implement our unique and transformational ideas. Thanks to your support we have been able to fund outreach to several countries and we have been lucky to hear back from two who have expressed interest - Malawi, and Myanmar.

We have entered into the next stage of our project by contracting with the relevant experts to conduct the necessary environmental, security, and market assessments to see if our plan will actually work in these countries. These studies will be costly and would love your continued support. With that support, we will hopefully implement our plan that will soon be helping protect over 3,000 elephants in Myanmar.

More information soon!

All the best,

Dane
