In Africa alone over 40,000 Elephants are killed every year for their Ivory Tusks! The world is losing the war on ivory poaching.
Having personally been on an African Camera Safari and experiencing the beauty of Africa’s Wildlife, I decided to help support the Wild Animal Anti-Poaching efforts of the African people.
I am opening the African Wild Animal Museum (AWAM) in Fort Bragg, California, which is just a few hours drive from San Francisco. The area is a worldwide tourist destination for it’s spectacular Ocean Vistas and Redwood Tree Forest and is visited by over 200,000 million nature and wildlife enthusiasts yearly.
The African Museum items, as shown in Pano of AWAM underway, including African Wild Animal Pictures, Collectibles, African Jewelry, Wearing Apparel, Children’s African Toy Animals, etc., have all been purchased and paid for or donated by friends of African and local collectors. As you can see the Museum is already well stocked and ready to open. AWAM also plans to invite African Dance Groups to perform in the Museum Gardens as an additional fund raising attraction.
The Museum, located on Highway One, a major tourist thoroughfare in Fort Bragg, is on a 1.2 acre property, and is adjacent to the World Famous Sea Glass Museum, which receives over 20,000 visitors from around the world each year. So exposure to the Museum will not be a problem.

Each month AWAM anticipates sending a percentage, verified by Ms. Jeannie Bailey, CPA, of the profits, or approximately $800.00 to $900.00, to the African Wildlife Foundation, of which AWAM is a member, to help continue their anti-poaching efforts.
