About me, tara

I don’t have a background in conservation, but I care. When I first saw the image of a super tusker, I never knew these existed, I was in awe. 

I’d like to see one or more walking in the wild one day.

I found information spread out, and I had more questions. So I decided to bring all the info together.

You’re unsure how to speak about what matters to you? That’s ok, you don’t need to have everything “right” to start using your voice. Stay kind to yourself in the process, and go for it. You already have all that you need within you
