A great defender and activist for Africa's Wildlife, special for Elephants, has gone

RIP WAYNE .... elephants are dying, rangers are dying, conservationists are being killed because they are trying to save the wildlife from being extinct. There are words about it ....

"The gunman who forced his taxi door and shot him on the outskirts of Dar es Salaam probably killed him for his work."

The world is a sadder and more dangerous world for the animals, without you in it. Such a brave, wonderful, courageous man. Thank you for all that you did for the animals, especially the elephants of Africa. Only the best die will be greatly missed. I hope your work continues on forever in your name. RIP.
