To give you a flavour of what you can achieve, here we present a few key examples of the development and deployment of some of the other main tools and processes we employ to great effect.
We believe that innovation in everyday life is just as important as that in the world of business and we are proud to support projects that are closely aligned with our values. Most recently we have acted as co-investors in a particularly creative, not-for-profit, crowd-funded venture: ‘Harmony for Elephants’. This project aims to raise global awareness of the plight of African elephants as well as the farmers who live close to reserve boundaries and risk losing their crops and livelihoods as a result of wildlife incursions. Proceeds from this project will help the charity ‘Elephants For Africa’ continue their work to find sustainable, yet innovative solutions to aid elephant conservation whilst lessening the human-elephant conflict in Botswana. Of particular note has been their discovery that elephants are especially sensitive to the smell of chilli and will avoid areas where rags soaked in chilli oil are hung along boundary fences. By being educated in the necessary agronomy and processing techniques the farmers can, not only protect their staple food crops but also, collectively, produce an additional cash crop.
The Harmony For Elephants project specifically revolves around the production of an evocative fine art book, with photographs and information documenting African elephants and elephant conservation, accompanied by a tailored CD album containing music from renowned musicians such as former ‘Genesis’ guitarists, Anthony Philips and Steve Hackett.
Having successfully raised the necessary funds, and with a lot of hard work and dedication from the team, the primary objective of launching in time for Christmas 2016 was successfully met. The books (2 sizes) plus the CD are now available for purchase and continue to raise funds for the 'Elephants for Africa' charity. For more information please visit the project’s Facebook page
