Environmental podcast with adventurer and conservationist Holly Budge – founder of How Many Elephants and World Female Ranger Week

On this episode we have adventurer and conservationist, Holly Budge who tells us all about her visual campaign and charity – How Many Elephants.

Anyone that is familiar with my art will know how much I love elephants so when a friend from home told me about Holly, who had visited her children’s school, inspiring them all with her passion for saving these wonderful creatures, I knew that I had to interview her.
Holly is a passionate fun courageous woman and I think you’re all going to love hearing about her adventures as much as I did.
We chat about . . .
  • Her hard hitting visual campaign and charity 
  • How she went from being a skydiving camerawoman to being a conservationist 
  • Her terrifying skydive over Everest!
  • How a teacher expanded her mind and helped put her on the path she’s on today
  • How passion and determination can help you achieve anything you set your mind to
  • How if you can hone something right down and do one thing really well you will have a bigger impact
  • The time she has spent in the African bush with the all female anti-poaching groups – The Black Mambas and the Akashinga
  • Her experiences with school children in Africa and the UK and how they compare

Since our interview, Holly has gone on to set up World Female Ranger Week, which amplifies the voices of female rangers around the world to support their impactful work.

    I can’t believe the number elephants are poached every day. It’s crazy and so sad. So good that people like Holly are doing what they’re doing.

      Hi Jan, yes it’s absolutely shocking isn’t it when you consider how many elephants are killed every day. It’s such a great campaign and exhibition for explaining the magnitude of the problem!
