Description

HELP US KEEP THE ELEPHANTS ALIVE AS GANGSTERS ATTEMPT TO SILENCE OUR PARTNER IN TANZANIA


Africa ASAP, whose mission is to keep the elephants alive by deploying an innovative aerial surveillance system, invites you to attend a fundraiser and movie screening benefiting our partner in Tanzania, the PAMS foundation (Protective Area Management Solutions).


The PAMS Foundation— a Tanzanian NGO devoted to protecting endangered wildlife— is under attack by gangsters. On August 16th, Wayne Lotter, a renowned anti-poaching leader and the founding member of PAMS, was slain by gunmen in an apparently targeted attack.

Without a partner on the ground like PAMS, Africa ASAP's airborne anti-poaching system for protecting Africa's vast Parks and reserves will have little chance of succeeding.

"Wayne Lotter's violent and apparently targeted murder shows just how dangerous the situation has become in relation to the big money that is associated with the illegal ivory and rhino horn trades..." HRH Prince William, The Telegraph


The event will center around a light supper, silent auction, and the showing of the award winning film The Ivory Game, which showcases Wayne's work in Tanzania.

Jane Goodall's quote about Wayne and PAMS sums up the spirit of our event:

"If this cowardly shooting was an attempt to bring the work of the PAMS Foundation to an end it will fail. Those who have been inspired by Wayne will fight on. But he will be sadly missed by so many. My heart goes out to Krissie, his family and all who have been privileged to know and work with him."

Even a small donation at our event will make a direct impact. You will certainly be saving the life of an elephant and perhaps even that of a Ranger!
