Throwback to this amazing moment in a bunker in the middle of an African forest. The bunker was by a waterhole where this gentle giant came to drink. Captured this shot when he came exploring to see what we were up to. He got pretty close, as you can see :)
Happy Monday from a happy Ellie 🐘🐘🐘
This little boomerang clip was captured by one of our travelers on a recent trip to Shamwari Private Game Reserve in South Africa 🇿🇦
Right back from the cold north of Brumingham disappointed didnt see any Dark satanic Mills
So views on the The National Running Show
where do we start
We met loads and loads of new victims.....and runners
made lots of new contacts including some great ideas for tie ins like headtorch companies and Flapjack man
Lots of very great speakers Kelly Homes and 401 bloke were great
Although it was small it was very friendly and the companies that were there were on point with the things they had to show off
We are booked in again for next year bigger stand. Our stand this year was great and the best looking to be honest (we are biased though)
We think we got the WSR message to a new slice of people, we met people that had heard of us but haven't done our races so hopefully we will get them in the herd
So thanks Ginny Palmer Clare Julyan Gemma Wilton Matt Weston Joanne Weston
and hi to everyone that popped in to see us

Conserving elephants and rhinos through the alleviation of poverty.
ERP recently supported a local nature reserve in the introduction of a founding population of black rhino into the reserve. This introduction marks the establishment of a population of rhino in a region which has not had black rhino in over 100 years. ERP have been assisting the reserve for the last year in the management of their elephant population, community development programmes and have now added value to their rhino population. Pictured is a rhino waiting to be introduced into his new home after hours of travel, (swipe left) to see aerial view of the rhinos that are being monitored.
ERP specifically assisted the reserve with the following aspects in relation to the project; The removal of large distances of perimeter fencing to expand the reserve to ensure the black rhino had adequate space to roam.The fence removal programme was conducted by a group of people from the local community around the reserve, appointed by ERP. This ensured economic value to the communities living adjacent to the reserve.ERP also provides telemetry equipment to ensure that the reserve management could track the rhino and monitor their movements and continous fundraising efforts for binoculars for the rangers appointed to monitor the rhinos.
