A rescued rhino calf, Purabi, under care at Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation (CWRC) was moved to Manas National Park today, to join an orphaned rhino calf being hand-reared there.

Walking the Talk to Save Kenya’s Elephants

Jim Nyamu has had plenty of time to think on his feet this year. By the time he arrives in Nairobi tomorrow he will have walked 1,050 kms raising awareness of poaching and the ivory trade, and becoming a national hero in the process.

Starting at Masai Mara National Reserve in early May, he has spent nearly six weeks on an awareness raising walk to save Africa’s tuskers from ivory poaching. Poaching has killed between 25,000-50,000 elephants in 2011 alone, according to the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW – www.ifaw.org).
