‘One elephant is killed every 15 minutes; at this rate none will be roaming wild by 2025.’
TATO Governing Council on its regular meeting held 1st August 2013, appointed Mrs Vesna Glamocanin Tibaijuka to lead Committee on Animal Day (TATO Conservation Support Committee) which will be commemorated on Friday, 4th October 2013 with a peaceful Elephant March through Arusha town.
The committee formed by non members as well, decided for this year (2013)to support the "Sparkling Elephant Project”. This is life-sized Elephant statue made of iron bars and sparkling beads and will be marched from Cultural heritage to AICC Grounds in Kijenge on 4th of October for raising awareness on impacts of poaching to the nature based tourism.
Also, Arusha is confirmed as one of the 15 cities in the World supported by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT), (www.iworry.org) in the International March for Elephants.
Please book your dairies, soon we will update you on any necessary support on this matter of grave concern to us all.
