Elephant Week: A Gala Dinner 2018


This November, Macey & Sons will be at the The Elephant Foundation & African Wildlife Foundation Gala Dinner. CEO, Mr. Jonathan Macey will be the auctioneer for this prestigious event at the Island Shangri-La on November 16th, 2018.




Elephants are a key stone species. Other animals, plants and entire ecosystems rely on them for survival. Their large footprints act as a water collection for smaller animals. They are also known as 'nature gardeners', plants and trees rely on elephants to disperse their seeds far and wide through their dung, but today these magnificent creatures are facing the biggest threat to survival due to continued ivory poaching. If we don't act now they could face localised extinctions.

Elephants are an amazingly intelligent species, their emotions and cognitive behaviours are very similar to humans. They develop strong, intimate bonds between friends and family members. They even grieve for their lost loved ones and feel fear, joy and empathy.


YOU can help to save elephants and rhinos.
Simply Say No To Wildlife Trade!





A message from the Elephant Society:


There are two weeks to go before our Elephant Week, culminating in our gala dinner at the Island Shangri La on Friday 16th November. At this stage we have a very busy week scheduled including 15 school visits, evening events and a talk to the Royal Geographical Society. There are some tables left for the dinner and we would very much welcome your support at this. The above photo is an example of one of our auction items provided by Jeremy Goss from Big Life Foundation, one of the organisations we support on the ground in Kenya and where one of our regular speakers, Daniel Ole Sambu, comes from. Prints of this, and others like it will available at the dinner along with other exciting items for auction such as a 5 day safari to Sri Lanka and a 5 day experience on the plains of Kenya working with units directly involved with the protection of wildlife

Your support at our dinner is vital in allowing us to do our work in Hong Kong, continuing to educate youth here about the importance of keeping wildlife alive and how this affects us here even though we are 5,000 miles from Kenya. The importance of keystone species such as elephants is often not understood and information we provide to children and young adults is spread far beyond the classroom to families and the communities they live in, as is demonstrated by this drawing seen in a residential lift lobby two days after one of our schools visits nearby
