WildlifeDirect ​​Mission:

Changing hearts, minds, and laws to ensure Africa's critical species endure forever.

History:

WildlifeDirect (previously the Africa Conservation Fund) was founded in 2004 by the prominent Kenyan conservationist and paleoanthropologist, Dr. Richard Leakey, and former World Bank Representative to Kenya, Harold Wackman. WildlifeDirect was initially conceived as an online platform to provide a voice to African conservationists to protect wildlife as an important global heritage. By publishing their blogs, the aim was to raise awareness and funds for individuals and organizations on the frontlines in otherwise ignored conservation areas.

Campaign Efforts

Hands Off Our Elephants was launched in response to the rapid escalation of elephant and rhino poaching, and government failure to acknowledge and deal with the crisis.Hands Off Our Elephants has forged a broad-based alliance for wildlife conservation that is unprecedented in an African context. The campaign to achieve justice in Kenyan courts has enlisted support from Kenya Wildlife Service, the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, the Chief Justice and his judicial officers and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. Innovative partnerships have been developed with major players in the Kenyan corporate sector, including national and regional media groups, Kenya Airways, Distell North East Africa, Nakumatt Holdings, Safarilink Aviation, Co-operative Bank of Kenya, Banda School, Brookhouse School. Celebrity supporters have included supermodel Ajuma, hip hop artist Juliani, and the dance group Platinum.
