TRAINING WITH THE BLACK MAMBAS

May 2018 @ KRUGER NATIONAL PARK, SOUTH AFRICA

British adventurer, conservationist and founder of How Many Elephants, Holly Budge, aims to inspire and educate women globally by showing real life case studies of ordinary women who achieve extraordinary things in traditional male roles. She feels that The Black Mambas, a courageous and determined anti-poaching all female team, are a great example of this.

“Through immersing myself with The Black Mambas, I want to learn what drives and motivates these pioneering women to pursue their multifaceted roles as protectors, educators and beacons of hope. Their work takes them away from their young families for weeks at a time, challenging the traditional status quo. Armed only with pepper spray and handcuffs, these women patrol hunting grounds of armed poachers who pose an imminent threat to the elephant species. They also strive to change attitudes towards the role of women in Africa and beyond.”

GUINNESS WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT

9th June 2018 @ ALRESFORD MUSIC FESTIVAL, UK

We are attempting a World Record at Alresford Music Festival 2018!

On display will be a life-size papier-mache African bull elephant standing tall at 3.96m (the current world record for the largest papier mache structure is 3.82m). The model will be built by a local artist and festival goers can paint and decorate the model for a contribution to How Many Elephants and the result will not only make a powerful and impactful piece of art but will be the biggest papier mache structure on record.

Holly is asking local businesses to get involved and to sponsor the world record attempt. This project will cost a total of £5,000 including the elephant build, workshop space, materials, transportation and marquee housing at the festival.  In return, all sponsor’s logo will be displayed next to the elephant structure visible to over 4,000 festival goers, plus will have the added benefits of extensive social media coverage and anticipated press and television coverage.

'WILD NIGHT OUT' ON THE SOUTH DOWNS!

30th June 2018.

FOR ONE NIGHT – AND DAY – EACH YEAR, WE ARE ENCOURAGING YOU TO GET OUTDOORS WITH YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY AND LOVED ONES

Join world record adventurer and conservationist Holly Budge for a ‘Wild Night Out on the South Downs’. Worryingly, research shows that one in nine children in England have not been to a natural environment in the past 12 months. The fresh air has incredible health benefits. We will kick off the day at midday with an optional walk from Alresford to the idyllic campsite setting at Holden Farm Camping in Cheriton (approx. 5 miles). And when darkness falls, the fun can continue with a night out under the stars, with storytellers sharing their tales of adventure round the campfire amongst the strumming of guitar strings. Activities will include bushcraft skills, a moth trap and bird spotting in the glorious rolling hills of the South Downs. All you need to bring is a tent, food and refreshments. There are fantastic facilities onsite including hot showers, toilets and a washing up area.

100% of the proceeds will go to How Many Elephants.
