"I am deeply passionate about elephants. Up until 2014, I had focused my conservation attention and funds on African elephants. I met Mark Shand and Ruth Ganesh in New York and became a donor to the Elephant Family and its conservation work in India. I’m excited about The Great Migration; its partnership with Art & Newport and the impact this venture holds for projects helping to create human-wildlife coexistence. I’m ready, willing and able to help in any way I can - and this includes driving a truck and migrating the herd!"
