In African mythology the giraffe is closest to God and you can speak to the giraffe who will convey your message. It is also said that giraffes are the messengers of the gods and to dream of a giraffe is an omen of good luck with possibilities of good fortune ahead.
Maybe you hold stock in these beliefs and what they say about carrying a talisman from this mighty beast to bring you luck. Maybe you don't.
Whatever your beliefs, these giraffe hair bracelets are truly unique and beautiful to both look at and to wear. Some of the larger designs may be suitable to be worn as an anklet.
All giraffe hair products are obtained strictly in accordance with International animal protection laws, specifically related to CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species). Elephants are protected and to stop or prevent poaching all products need to be documented and authorized with a cites permit. When you purchase an elephant hair product from us we issue a CITES permit. When the giraffe hair product reaches your customs the CITES document is removed and the package is cleared through customs. This way your giraffe hair bracelet reaches you legally.
Francis Cary is a dedicated nature conservationist, not only when it comes to elephant and rhino but also to fauna and flaura conservation.
A percentage of all proceeds from this website are donated to an elephant sanctuary –Bayete- Various other donations are also made during the year to other needy sanctuaries or organizations.
Over the years Francis has received awards for his contributions and work in the prevention of wildlife poaching and the breeding programs associated with rhinos. The Zululand area and elephant coast are particularly affected by poaching. This area suffers from extreme poverty. Isimangaliso World Heritage Site authorities and Ezemvelo Wildlife authorities have stations here that patrol 24 hours a day in the hope of controlling poaching. Various feeding schemes have also been implimented for the people.
When it comes to conservation there is far more than meets the eye. A large amount of planning and preparation is required which involves many work hours from many different people, not only in South Africa but also from other countries.
