Subject Contact for Fathala reserve, Senegal

Dear friends, would you please be able to help? I was working as a warden in the reserve park in 2009 and had to be flown to England as a result of malaria. I had to leave my dog there and would like to find out how he is and contact the Belgium couple and my other friends there. Do they have email? Kind regards, Please reply to

Subject Healthy Planet Partnership

Dear Giant Eland Conservation,

My name is Daisy and I work for Healthy Planet Foundation, a UK registered charity based in Hammersmith, London. The purpose of our charity is to connect people to conservation-based organisations around the world. Our customers pay to virtually ‘adopt’ plots of land in protected areas on our interactive website. Healthy Planet does not carry out work on the ground. The money raised through such adoptions goes to organisations carrying out conservation activities within the chosen place.

We are currently anticipating the launch of our new website in the next month. When launched, we want a catalogue of fantastic projects working in vulnerable areas all around the world that people can choose to sponsor. I have done some research in to your organisation, and I think your organisation is working for a fantastic cause and would be really appealling to our customers. We could allow them to adopt land in Niokolo-Koba with the proceeds going to your charity.

Please can you email me at if you are interested in applying for funding through us. You will receive 90% of donations and a case study page on our website.

We would love to help save this species!

Subject Ex situ breeding

I believe that there are about six Lord Derby Eland cows in South African zoos. However, none of these zoos have a bull and thus no reproduction can take place.
I am interested in becoming involved in establishing a breeding program in South Africa.
Who can I contact to discuss options in this regard?
