Bikes shipped from Czech Republic to save elephants

Around 200 bicycles will be shipped from the Czech Republic to be used by nature park rangers in their bid to protect elephants against poachers. Most of the bicycles will be sent to Chad, Cameroon, and the Central African Republic. The Czech charity Bikes for Africa was created in 2012 and has so far dispatched around 13,000 bicycles to the continent. Some of the bicycles are offered to children so that they can get to school and obtain an education which might turn them away from poaching.
