RAGES Borneo Pygmy Elephant Project
The Rotarian Action Group for Endangered Species raising funds for GPS collars, Garmin Cameras, Milk Powder & Fencing.
How we can help -
1. Create awareness of the issue to stop & prosecute poaching, illegal killing, snare trapping & the illegal pet trade in Borneo
2. Fund & deliver 4 Garmin Virb cameras to record operations, rescues and footage of illegal snaring & poaching for prosecution through the courts
3. Provide monetary assistance to the Wildlife Rescue Unit to give access to worldwide experts so that they can learn through education. Offer Rotary scholarships, placements and exchanges to enhance their learning.
4. Fundraise to purchase GPS collars for the DGFC and WRU members to use, so that we learn more about the transient movements of elephants
5. Provide assistance by fundraising to install electric fences to protect schools, medical centres and villages
6. Support locals attempting to create NGO’s to provide centres for the conservation of rescued animals. Creating strong, diverse local economies that meet local peoples' needs & support employment & international fair trade
7. Educating locals and farmers to create sustainable & humane agriculture that gives access to nutritious, low impact, local & seasonal products

The recent collared wild Borneo Pygmy Elephant No 35, Koyah may be the one that saves her species as her movements will be tracked by students all over NZ, so that we can learn the best way to protect her and prevent human elephant conflicts. This is Rotary evolving to teach the younger generation how, why, where and when we make a difference.
