SUPPORT THE GREAT LONDON TO BRISTOL
IVORY BELONGS TO ELEPHANT WALK 2017 The walk begins at the Natural History Museum in the Borough of Kensington & Chelsea London on Sunday the 3rd of December with overnight stopovers in Windsor, Reading, Newbury, Swindon, Cirencester, Cheltenham, Gloucester (no overnight stopover), Stroud, Chippenham, Bath, and a brief stop in Yate and to finish at Council House College Green, Bristol City Centre on Tuesday December 12th. As we are aware Kenya celebrates Jamhuri Day on this date, on completion of the Great Walk Jim Justus Nyamu accompanied by the Lord Mayors will raise the Kenya National Flag at Council House City Hall.
On Sunday the 17th of December Jim will speak at the prestigious MTM Awards at the Bristol Marriott Hotel.
The rationale behind this walk is to raise awareness of the plight of African elephants and hope the United Kingdom stops the illegal domestic ivory market and join other nations to support the African Elephants Action Plan.
The recent survey shows that African elephants are declining at an alarming rate and there is a need to create regional, national and International awareness.
Jim Nyamu is the founder and the Executive Director for Elephant Neighbors Center. ENC is a local NGO in Kenya that focuses on enhancing the capacity of communities living with wildlife to promote inter-linkages between species and their habitats.
Kenya’s Elephant man and his team completed the latest edition of 617 km from Nairobi to Marsabit Walk for Elephants on May 9th, 2017.
The London to Bristol Walk is the second international walk Jim has undertaken, and this is only the beginning as we hope to partner Jim and carry the message across all countries that still engage in the Ivory trade. The London to Bristol Walk is the first in the UK and we plan to have many more in different parts of the country in the coming year.
We pray that the Kenya media will celebrate this great cause through the media channel and online for the benefit of those in the diaspora to support this Great cause.
