American actress and model, Margaret Denise Quigley, professionally known as Maggie Q, is currently in Kenya to raise awareness for elephant conservation.
She is known as Agent Wells in Designated Survivor where she plays the role of a federal agent. The actress is a strong advocate for animal rights which saw her adopt an elephant in Nairobi.
She took to Instagram to inform her fans about the trip:
“Day 1. Kenya. After my breakfast and before theirs, I’m blessed enough to receive orphan love at the rehabilitation center in Nairobi. I am flying off soon to the second camp where these young babies will be transferred to one day. There, they will be cared for until they are ready to be integrated back into the wild. Watch this space.,” she said on IG.
The actress, who is outspoken on the subject of animal rights, had joined fellow WildAid Ambassadors Yao Ming, Li Bingbing, and Jackie Chan for the “Say No” campaign urging consumers not to buy ivory and rhino horn products in 2013.
It always blows me away to witness the individuality of elephants. EVERY time. And these are elephants who have been orphaned by US. And yet, they still allow us to be apart of their healing- and depend on one another for the same. These animals have come from terror, pain and loss. They just want to heal. Like anyone…. @dswt You are the light. #stoppoachingnow #handsofftheirelephants #heyjambojambo
