This #WednesdayforWildlife we congratulate Richard Bonham, co-founder of Big Life Foundation, as his efforts keep seeing recognition! We are exhilarated to announce that Richard will be joining other 30 conservation world leaders to compete for the Indianapolis Prize. It is a massive honour seeing him get nominated for the leading animal conservation award.
For Richard, it has been a long and arduous fight to prevent elephants, black rhinos and lions from becoming extinct in the Amboseli region. His efforts, however, are not in vain. They led to the arrest of thousands of wildlife crime suspects, the confiscation of over 2 tons of ivory from the illegal market, and the implementation of numerous methods to reduce the impact of human-wildlife conflict.
The best of luck, Richard!
