What a great thing to do probably at their own peril too Its so imperative the natives start to care as all these animals especially for ivory will be poached or hunted to extinction Its so sad in South Africa Two rhinos are being killed everyday now without the elephants Much praise has to go to villagers like this

Noted & Signed! It is so nice to see that the villagers themselves see the need to protect these incredible animals from poachers who are so devoid of morality! By taking responsibility for the wonderful heritage that they have been given, the elephants, and determined to get rid of the crime, corruption, and instability that poaching brings with it, the best chance of these elephants' survival may rest with these local people! Thank you for this uplifting article!

What a joy to sign this thank you to Julius and his village for having the ability to change and now to protect their rich cultural heritage. May more do the same so that elephants and rhinos be saved. YES, nothing better than courage and unity.

This is a HUGE step towards the protection of these beautiful animals because when locals look down on the activity, it will be rewarded less & reported more. Thanks!!!
