Actress Kristin Davis is raising funds to protect elephants from poaching in Kenya. Utilizing Crowdrise, funds raised from the Helicopter for Elephants campaign will be used to purchase a helicopter to stop illegal activity. The elephants, being killed for their ivory tusks, are rapidly diminishing.

Davis is a long-time supporter of  The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of Africa’s wilderness and wildlife. The non-profit pays particular attention to endangered species such as elephants and the black rhino. With the aid of a helicopter, the organization will be able to better monitor poaching activity and aid orphaned elephants in distress.

On Davis’ fundraising page, she writes, “If poaching continues at the current rate, according to experts all wild elephants will be EXTINCT IN 10 YEARS!  We can’t let this happen!” The actress continues, “We can’t let the bad guys take the beauty that is nature away from all of us.”

Davis recently discussed her 2009 trip to Kenya and the rescue of a baby elephant on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” “The Sex and the City” star joins the growing ranks of ‘ele-friendly’ celebs, which include “True Blood” vamp Kristin Bauer van Straten who recently filmed an anti-poaching documentary.

In addition to aiding the elephants, supporters of Helicopter for Elephants who donate before July 7th will be entered to win a pair of Davis’ shoes worn in the movie ‘Sex and the City 2’.
