The Elephant Map Project

I was honored to be invited to create the poem "Elephant Gardeners" for this beautiful hand-painted map highlighting the plight of African elephants, designed by artist-cartographer Connie Brown and Katie Losey. We hop this fundraising effort to benefit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, together with the efforts of many other organizations, will help save these remarkable and important animals from extinction in our lifetimes. For information about this moving and educational work of art, including how to purchase a poster or limited print please visit The Elephant Map Project.
