My story

[p][b][u]Update[/u][/b] : [b]CONGRATULATIONS[/b][/p][p]Last weekend's weather was perfect for Stephen to successfully complete his gruelling 100 mile Ride London cycle to raise funds for [url=http://www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/index.asp][b]The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT[/b][/url][b])[/b]. Picture attached below with his proud medal.[/p][p] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------[/p][p]Sadly elephants become orphans due to ivory poaching, human-wildlife conflict, habitat loss and drought. [url=http://www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/index.asp][b]The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT[/b][/url][b])[/b] is an orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in Nairobi. Here infant elephants are rescued and hand reared at the centre until eventually being re-integrated into the wild herds. [/p][p]Stephen’s passion for wildlife started during his time in South Africa, where he worked in access control and parking management for seven years. Ever since then he has been a wildlife conservation enthusiast, taking part every year in different charity activities and fund raisers. [/p][p]After an emotional journey to East Africa, Stephen started to raise money for [url=http://www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/index.asp][b]The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT)[/b][/url][b].[/b] This year he will be taking on the gruelling [url=https://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/about][b]Prudential 100 mile RideLondon challenge[/b][/url]. This is the world’s greatest festival of cycling, with more than 100,000 cyclists expected to participate during the weekend of 3-4 August 2019. [/p][p]This builds on to Stephen’s previous fundraising challenges which include the Berlin Velothon, a single day road race covering 120 kilometres in 2018. He climbed the [b]Simien[/b] mountain range in Ethiopia including the highest peak [b]Ras Dashen[/b] at no less than 4,620 metres in 2017. In addition to a similar previous climbs such as [b]Kilimanjaro[/b] & [b]Mount Kenya[/b]. [/p][p]The DSWT incorporates all measures that complement the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife. Stephen feels very honoured to be part of this programme and looks forward to any donations you can give for this very worthy cause.[/p][p]Did you know the more money we raise goes towards milk for orphan elephants like Maktao![/p][p]Maktao is just one of 96 milk-dependent orphans currently cared for by the SWT. On average, a young Nursery Baby like Maktao drinks 2-3 tins of milk formula a day. At a cost of around £11 a tin, feeding so many mouths is incredibly costly and that’s why, with your fundraising efforts, we can ensure the tummies of little elephants like Maktao are always full!
