Today my task is to ask for money. Not for me but for elephants.
As I have mentioned before - Cate has decided to participate in a 7 day walk across the Sahara desert in Jordan.
It is part of the 4 Deserts race series – and yes, there are people even madder than her who do all 4 deserts in one year.
She will spend 8 to 14 March trudging across the desert with all her belongings on her back for 150 miles. The penultimate day is 56 miles.
When she arrives in Petra I will collect the remains and deposit them in a delicious hotel to try to bring her back to life.
We have been supporting the extraordinary work of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust for some time – ever since Cate’s sister in law visited their refuge outside Nairobi.
Coincidentally it turns out that the US Friends of the Trust are actually located here in Indianapolis.
I won’t try to describe the work they do as I cannot do it justice but please take a minute to watch a very short video about the rescue of Ndotto.
If you would like to help baby elephants this is Cate’s page.
