Tomorrow, a team of Kenyan environmentalists begins a 160-day walk from Nairobi to Johannesburg, South Africa, to raise awareness about elephant and rhino conservation.

The historic walk dubbed the East-Southern Africa Elephant Walk comes at a time when the elephant corridor is experiencing rapid depletion of animals due to enhanced market for wildlife trophies in China, America, and Europe.

As per Elephant Neighbors Center, the non-profit organization’s co-founder Jim Nyamu, also fondly referred to as the “elephant man,” will walk across seven countries including Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana and South Africa, educating people on the merits of elephant conservation.

According to a post on their Facebook page, the team of 10 people aims to “ward off worrying trends of poaching, champion the ban on the ivory trade and wildlife trophies, petition authorities and jurisdictions to legislate and enact stringent laws to curb poaching, and for sensitive communities living around wildlife to adequately conserve wildlife.”

The four-month-long East-Southern Africa Walk seeks to bring the world-famous corridor together to ensure poaching is completely exterminated, and the locals in constant close proximity to the elephants work to conserve their species for future generations.

Among his many worthy walks, Nyamu has traveled by foot from Mombasa to Nairobi, Meru to Nairobi and Nairobi to Marsabit.

In the United States, Nyamu has walked in eight states including New York, Delaware, Washington, California, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Connecticut.
