MONETARY REWARDS FOR WILDLIFE CRIME WHISTLEBLOWERS
Elephant Action League (EAL), through its project WildLeaks, and the National Whistleblower Center (NWC), through its Global Wildlife Whistleblower Program, are thrilled to announce a collaboration that will enable wildlife whistleblowers around the world to safely and anonymously file wildlife crime reports, and help ensure that these courageous whistleblowers qualify for monetary rewards from the U.S. government, regardless the nationality of the individual.
This spring, Matt Meyer (@rhinoride2017 will cycle 2,000 miles from Blaine, WA to San Diego, CA pulling a life-sized fiberglass rhino to raise funds and awareness for these beautiful creatures. Every 8 hours a rhino is killed for its horn and at this rate, rhinos will face extinction within 10 years.•
It has been such a privilege to get to know some of the amazing women at @empowersafrica who will facilitate donations for Matt's ride, on behalf of 3 amazing organizations in Africa who work tirelessly everyday to save this iconic species: Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary (@careforwild), Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta) and Save the Rhino Trust (@savetherhinonamibia). Matt's campaign is under-written by @PiperandHeath and @WeAreWilderness
