Angelina, Brad and Shilo make huge donation to Naankuse!

What inspiring news to wake up to today- Brad, Angelina and Shilo making a huge commitment to wildlife conservation in Namibia with a $N13,000,000, or $US2,000,000, donation to Naankuse Namibian Wildlife Sanctuary.

Way to go for celebs to really help make a difference out there. We've recently seen Prince William, as Patron of the Tusk Trust ,  make a strong speech for wildlife conservation at the Trust's 20th anniversary celebration.
 Perhaps we may see a trend for more celeb people to take leadership in conservation.

Paris, wake up and make some use of your space!

More info on Naankuse, volunteering, and of our family's 2 week volunteer stay there is here-

Wow - that's a BIG difference!! Nice to see some significant contributions going towards something actually meaningful and sustainable. Hopefully this will spark a range of 'copycats'?!?!

Happy 2011!
