This website would not have become a reality were it not for two special people who generously donated their time and talents to this effort. They are MICHAEL WILK, who several years ago constructed our original site from scratch, and DAVE BISHOP who re-purposed some content of the old site and, with many additional new components, created this multi faceted, multi featured, up dated website. We hope that you find your visit here rewarding and informative and at times even entertaining. One important function of this site is to provide first hand testimony and information about people and NGOs we support, for those who also want to help, but who want assurance that their donations will reach the intended target and make a difference on the ground. All the NGOs featured on this site are in need of more support from a greater number of donors, therefore we hope you'll consider lending a hand to their efforts.
A few weeks ago we had the great pleasure of meeting renowned Elephant researcher and "Save The Elephants" founder Iain Douglas-Hamilton at a fund raiser here in California. We look forward seeing him again at the upcoming Wildlife / Elephant Summit in Jackson Hole in September. However before we fly to Wyoming for the event, JK & Steppenwolf still have to play 8 concerts, which will bring the total of engagements to 13 this year, enough to keep MKF well funded :-) We will post an update in September JK & JMK
