A tribute to Wayne Lotter, elephant conservationist murdered in Tanzania


Wayne Lotter

By Michelle Henley.
You were and will always be an inspiration. You sacrificed so much to protect the elephants we love. I will remember you and pay homage to you with every elephant we try to protect or save. I will make sure that we fight harder to keep them alive. I met you and Krissie while trying to create a better world for elephants and that is why Elephants Alive and the PAMS Foundation still have a long journey ahead. We have not yet secured a future for the elephants so we will not let you die in vain.
You will live on with every leafy footprint that Wayne, the elephant, leaves in African soils. You will live on in your daughter Tamsin’s efforts when she comes back to work for us. You will live on in every effort to protect wildlife. You will live on in these words:
You are a trail blazer, a path finder, a leader, a hero, a friend, an example and a mentor. Thank you for blessing us all.
