In 1999 and 2000 the Anne K. Taylor Fund participated in and supported rescues of several elephants and giraffe. The Anne K. Taylor Fund decided to undertake a thorough assessment of the poaching pressure and immediately address the issue with active snare sweeps and patrols. In addition, they have established an injured animal reporting system among the drivers and guides in the lodges. This will enable them to quickly find and treat injured animals in conjunction with the Kenya Wildlife Service. Theit assessment of the level of poaching in the Masai Mara (conducted between September and November 2000) revealed a problem that will require continuous patrols and snare removal projects to protect the wildlife. They hope that their continued antipoaching and desnaring projects will reduce the need for wildlife rescues. Until that time, they continue to sponsor and actively take part in wildlife rescues in the Masai Mara with the Kenya Wildlife Service and the Mara Conservancy.
Art for ConservationTM Commitment Goal:
Anne K Taylor Fund has been indicated by AFC members as a potential recipient of donations by participating artists. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program, provides a forum to promote artwork that benefits recognized conservation organizations such as Anne K Taylor Fund.
AFC members have voluntarily and independently earmarked a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork to Anne K Taylor Fund. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program provides a forum to help promote artwork for sale that includes such a commitment. Each artists's commitment is contingent on the sale of their work and the above estimate is a potential total based on the completion of sale of any original work and/or limited editions. The AFC is not involved in any way with artwork sales transactions, nor does it make any guarantees relating to artist commitments. The AFC takes no commission whatsoever from the sale of artwork under the Art for ConservationTM program, unless explicitly indicated.
