On the front line

We hope that you enjoyed Monty and Friends African Adventure. Obviously it is a fictional story but the issues that we included are very real. As an author it's all about sharing the story as widely as possible, but we realise that the themes in the book are important to people and so we have added this section where you can get some more information.

The links below will take you to some amazing organisations who are working everyday to protect our wild creatures for future generations. We have carefully selected the following groups but this list is by no means exhaustive and if you think we should add others please let us know  at montynewf@googlemail.com. Indeed if you are an organisation working in this area we'd love to hear from you and we are more than happy to add any events or news you'd like to share.


Please take a few minutes to see what these wonderful people are doing for species who are so under threat. You can donate, get more information or even adopt an Elephant.

The Reteti Elephant Sanctuary

An ever-growing movement of grass roots level, community focused conservation is gaining huge momentum in Northern Kenya, and a new wave of wildlife protection is emerging. Once heavily poached and severely degraded by instability, the northern rangeland is now restoring itself through transparent, self-governed community conservancies that promote the preservation of natural resources in order to create stability, employment and revenue.

The Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is situated in the remote Mathews Range, among Kenya’s second largest elephant population. It takes in orphaned and abandoned elephant calves with an aim to release them back into the wild herds adjoining the Sanctuary. This is the result of a widely recognised and expanding grassroots movement of community-driven conservation across northern Kenya; a movement that is growing new economies, transforming lives and conserving natural resources.
