In the Summer Escape issue of PORTER, Editor-in-Chief Lucy Yeomans describes her personal experience alongside Doutzen and her work with Knot On My Planet, a campaign to raise funds for the Elephant Crisis Fund, an initiative of Save the Elephants and the Wildlife Conservation Network, and in partnership with the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. The Elephant Crisis Fund supports partners throughout Africa and across the world to stop the killing of elephants caused by the ivory trade.

It is incredibly rare that a project comes along that ignites such passion in a team, but the PORTER and NET-A-PORTER campaign to raise awareness about the plight of the global elephant population has done exactly that. Elephants play a crucial role in our eco-system and their rapidly dwindling are a threat to the species.  We are very honoured – along with our partners at Save the Elephants, the Elephant Crisis Fund, Knot on My Planet and Tiffany & Co – to be supporting this cause and bringing the story of the inspirational Douglas Hamiltons (the family behind Save The Elephants) as well as the Samburu people, to a global audience. As Saba Douglas Hamilton says, how would we feel if we were the generation responsible for letting the largest land mammal on earth to be wiped out.
