This is the case with my involvement in helping SAVE BONA! I had heard of Bona through the persistant facebook posts a couple of good friends had been posting. They were sharing the story and the plight of little Bona, who had lost her Mum, most likely through the palm oil plantations habitat destruction. At only two years old an infant orphan elephant does not have much chance to survive if it doesn’t get the enriching milk that only a mother can provide. So my close friends had taken it upon themselves to make sure that Bona was provided with the right kind of food that would help her get through these stages of life without mothers milk. So I decided that I had to put my Australia journey on hold and provide some help.

I will be providing my skills to help raise awareness for Bona and her plight to get the right people involved to make sure she get’s through this early stages of life. I’ve become a part of Team Bona and we are travelling to Sumatra on April 29 to deliver the first shipment of goods for her. My specific role will be to help get the message out from Sumatra on her condition to all her supporters and also film every last second of the great work that Team Bona are doing to produce a short documentary film. We will also be attempting to hold live Google+ hangout sessions at the Elephant Conservation Center for her supporters. This will all once again raise awareness not only for Bona but also Elephant Conservation throughout Sumatra.

The Pozible Project
For me this is not a paid gig, not even close. I don’t even have enough money to get to Sumatra but that hasn’t stopped me. I started a Pozible project to help get me there for a start. Once there I can film, document and communicate with the outside world and get things kicked off for a documentary film. Right now the Pozible project has reached it’s goal (massive thank you!), but I’m not stopping there. Every cent over the goal goes directly towards further supplies for Bona. So keep it rolling for little Bona. Check out the pozible rewards, grab a tee or sign up to be a part of the live hangout sessions we will be holding in Sumatra.

A little thank you note to all that have supported Bona and this project so far.

Once we have filmed the initial arrival of the goods and the work going in to help Bona grow and mature, we will then assess the situation for future food drops and the continuation of filming and production of the Bona Documentary. Look forward to keeping you all posted while over there. Follow the facebook page for the latest updates and meet the team and contributors behind this special cause. Go Team Bona!
