WWF's Education for Nature Program supported Jim in 2011 to attend an international elephant and rhino conference in the Netherlands where he was the only African in attendance. Soon after, Jim started his own NGO, Elephant Neighbors Center, to promote peaceful co-existence between elephants and communities and to protect African elephants and secure their landscape outside protected areas. Now, Jim is on the last leg of his Ivory Belongs to Elephants USA Walk from Boston to DC. He'll complete his walk on October 4th to coincide with the International March for Elephants--DC.

Jim has more than 15 years of experience working on African elephant conservation. Prior to founding Elephant Neighbors Center, he was an elephant research scientist with African Conservation Centre. Jim is an active member of the Kenya Elephant Forum, Ecological Society of Eastern Africa (ESEA), African Elephant Specialist Group, Species Survival Commission IUCN and Wildlife Clubs of Kenya.
