YOUR IMPACT


Finding the right partner can be daunting.

Young suiters swipe for hours on dating apps, managers interview candidate after candidate searching for the right fit, even penguins search the oceans far and wide to find their right partner.

So, when it came time to select the charity partner for our Save The Greys collection, we knew we wanted to find organisations that not only make maximum impact but also share our values. 

Then came along Ol Pejeta Conservancy and Baruman Nagari - the perfect pair doing their bit to conserve the life of endangered species such as Rhinos and Elephants. 

When you choose to wear any piece from our Save The Greys range, these are the organisation you're supporting. 

 

Ol Pejeta, a 90,000 acre conservancy between Mt. Kenya and the Aberdare mountain range, is home to many thousands of wild creatures, who all seek sanctuary within its well protected borders. Living and working alongside hundreds of families, with whom they enjoy the privilege of a mutually beneficial relationship.

Ol Pejeta’s reach is wide and varied. Ol Pejeta employ nearly 700 workers including armed rangers who protect endangered species from ruthless poachers.

Ol Pejeta provide a model that provides a rich biodiversity by providing rescued chimpanzees with a second chance at life, collaring lions to understand how best to make space for them amidst shrinking habitats, protecting, and rehabilitating rhinos, and much more.

Ol Pejeta offer over 70 scholarships a year to deserving children, they also teach farmers how to grow food sustainably while connecting them to markets. They also conduct medical clinics to marginalised communities who desperately need care.

Conservation is about so much more than wildlife and the work Ol Pejeta provide within the communities provides better education, infrastructure and healthcare for the local people who will go on to be the next guardians for all of Kenya’s wildlife.

  • Ol Pejeta are East and Central Africa’s largest Black Rhino sanctuary with 146 critically endangered Black Rhinos

Barumun Nagari Wildlife Sanctuary (BNWS) provides sanctuary for elephants and other endemic Sumatran wildlife. Established in 2015, they are a grassroots organisation dedicated to the conservation and preservation of Indonesia’s rich biodiversity and are home to fifteen critically endangered Sumatran elephants who co-exist within their 600 hectares of verdant and varied terrain in North Sumatra.

During the rehabilitation period the Barumun Nagari Wildlife Sanctuary’s team focuses on three key areas

  1. Paying close attention to the elephant’s nutritional needs.
  2. On going monitoring of the elephant’s health.
  3. Support of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). One of the main causes of stress is due to 24/7 chaining of the animals, and to reduce this stress the elephants have access to 200ha of land, nutritious food, and providing chain free enclosures in the evenings.

By supporting the Save the Greys campaign you are helping to fund all these amazing initiatives by BNWS to support a species of elephant that is highly endangered.
