Introducing the Tuskers of Alkebulan Project. With James Havens’s next wildlife conservation project, we will be heading to Africa on a journey of discovery through the creation of a hand painted, life-sized oil-on-canvas portrait of Craig, the 53 year old one of the most famous of Africa's few remaining big tusked elephants.

The Tuskers of Alkebulan Project is the next step from the recent Arctic Nomad Project, which features a life-sized painting of Alaska’s extinct Woolly Mammoth and highlighted recent scientific discoveries made in Alaska. It is too late to save the Woolly Mammoth from extinction; however, there is may still time to save the big Tuskers of Africa.

“I strive to capture the world in a way that demonstrates my spontaneous and thrill seeking lifestyle. I seek out locations that are dangerous, hard to access and authentic. I have fallen in love with how a photograph can capture a pristine beach, an ancient culture or endangered species, forever etching them into our minds.” - Brain Montalbo
With the Tuskers Project we are also spotlighting and raising awareness for the Big Life Foundation. The Big Life Foundation is an essential part of the tuskers conservation efforts and employs hundreds of local Maasai rangers to protect the Greater Amboseli ecosystem. Big Life’s rangers are expertly trained and well-equipped, working around-the-clock to protect and secure some of the world’s most iconic species and their habitats.
