Join Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Magazines, for Big Blend Radio’s Nature Connection Show. Adam M. Roberts “The Compassionate Conservationist” discusses his recent visit to Myanmar as an advisor for The Elephant Project, which has developed new ideas and new solutions to address the threats to elephant survival, providing them a new future free of cruelty and death at the hands of humans.
The Elephant Project’s innovative corporate/non-profit approach will foster new dynamic and humane economies which will create sustainable revenue streams for elephant protection and related conservation efforts based on free market principles. These revenue streams will fund solutions that address the short and long-term needs of elephants, the communities in which they live, their environment, and by extension, other imperiled species - fostering an environment where a protected elephant is worth more than a dead one.
