As many of you will know, Ian spent many happy years living and working in Southern Africa. Ian was never happier during this time when loading up the 4x4, with camping equipment, bone China tea mugs and “proper wine glasses”, planning a route with Wendy and heading off into the African Wilde’s on Safari!p, sometimes for a month or two. He never traveled light and never without some creature comforts!

Nearly 100 elephants are slaughtered every day to feed to the blood ivory trade. Rhino horn is more expensive than gold, and greedy poachers are eager to make a profit from killing these endangered animals. All of Africa’s great apes are endangered.

African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) is working around the clock to ensure these threatened species have a place in our future. They’re equipping anti-poaching patrols, working with governments and legislative officials to enforce wildlife trafficking penalties, strengthening law enforcement with ivory- and rhino-horn detecting canine units and reducing demand through celebrity-driven public awareness campaigns.

That’s why I have started this campaign in memory of Ian Adamson to help AWF launch more of these critical projects across the African continent — and we need you to help.

Please donate to our campaign. Even a small amount helps.
