015 Akashinga “The Brave Ones”


In today’s episode, Tabby and Holly discuss Akashinga “The Brave Ones”; Africa’s first armed, all woman, all plant-based, anti-poaching unit. It is estimated that by 2024, all elephants will be extinct in the wild- in large part due to poaching. In 2013 alone, approximately 35,000 elephants were poached across Africa. Akashinga currently protects a very small portion of the continent, but the ground that they protect has experienced a tremendous decline in poaching and an uptick in wildlife populations across the board in a very short time. Tune in to today’s episode to learn how Akashinga is revolutionizing conservation efforts.
