Giving Tuesday: Reteti Elephant Sanctuary

December 02, 2019

Figue is happy to announce that 20% of proceeds from purchases of our Tala Pouch will be donated to Reteti Elephant Sanctuary, a cause that is close to our heart. 

 

Reteti is located in Northern Kenya and is the first elephant sanctuary to be community owned and run.

 

Designed to rescue and release orphaned and abandoned elephant calves, whilst creating much needed benefits to the local people that live alongside them. The Reteti Elephant Sanctuary, is the representation of the communities standing up united for wildlife, in recognition of the value that they can cultivate.

 

Opportunities are being created, livelihoods are improving and wildlife is returning, proving that nature can provide a sustainable economy for the populations that occupy its magnificent ecosystem.

 

The orphaned elephants that are cared for by the Samburu community, are symbols of a new wave of thinking about wildlife and the environment, that goes far beyond traditional conservation methods, and dives deeper into the core value of what nature represents.

 

These gentle giants will cease to exist if not for places like Reteti. Please consider donating to Reteti this holiday season, and help save the elephants.
