Our Friend of the Month is Dr Pete Morkel, wildlife veterinarian, who earlier this year helped the EPI’s Dr Dolmia Malachie with a collaring project of Chad’s elephants.
Our friend of the month is Jim Justus Nyamu from Kenya. Jim is an indefatigable walker for elephants and the Executive Director of the Elephant Neighbours Centre (ENC). Jim has walked across East and Southern Africa, as well as the UK, and the USA, to raise awareness for elephant conservation. In July he’ll be walking from Kenya to Eritrea, crossing Ethiopia, as he attempts to get media and community support for elephant protection in the Horn of Africa.
