World Elephant Day
Today is #WorldElephantDay and we are proud to have hosted the Walk with Elephants, for Elephants.
Joined by our research partners, members of the media, celebrities and special guests, we showcased some of the research projects we support via the 'Rory Hensman Elephant Conservation and Research Unit' with interactive demonstrations and talks. Sean Hensman welcomed guests to this special day designed to show our commitment to shaping a better, brighter future for elephants.
Dr Angela Stöger from Vienna University, Dr Marcus Byrne & Ash Miller from Wits University gave wonderful presentations on their research during the morning that we spent in the bush. A group of children from Eduplex School and two foreign exchange students joined us to participate in this special occasion. Filmmaker Dr Reina Marie Loader kindly filmed the day, so you can look forward to seeing the video soon.
Thank you very much to everyone that travelled from far and wide to be with us today, and for lending your support to the conservation of elephants! Thanks also to Zebula Golf Estate & Spa for hosting some of our guests and for the lovely dinner last night. We plan to make this an annual event!
