Nyamu explains that "the wildlife belongs to us, so it's our responsibility, not just the government's, to take care of it. We need to stop killing elephants, for our posterity." Planning to involve as many people as possible in the campaign, he will reach out to thousands more this month, interacting with over 80 learning institutions, academies, schools, polytechnics, and universities along the way.
His "Ivory Belongs to Elephants" campaign has gained the support of organizations including World Wildlife Fund, Kenya Wildlife Service, Friends of Fort Jesus, Wildlife Club's of Kenya, Nature Kenya, Pollman's Tours & Safaris and Colobus Trust. Along with the assistance and cooperation of the Kwale, Mombasa, Kilifi, Tana River and Lamu counties, this walk will no doubt be as successful as the rest.
At a time when communication is dominated by the internet, and receiving a letter by post is rare, Nyamu's face-to-face campaigning can only be applauded. With a focus on education, advocacy and resource conservation, ENC is seeking support from like-minded organisations and individuals willing to support this noble campaign to save Africa's wildlife.
