Save the Elephants assists wildlife departments in their fight against ivory traders and poachers. We protect and monitor elephants with aerial surveillance and radio-tracking and believe that a renewed ivory trade remains the greatest potential threat to elephants.
Save The Elephants has worked in partnership with The WILD Foundation for over 10 years providing critical field research on the Gourma elephant migration. Based on this information The WILD Foundation began working with local communities to protect the elephants while also meeting their own needs for clean water and good grazing. The WILD Foundation, now with the International Conservation Fund of Canada, has developed this model very successfully, extending it across the elephant range, working at all levels of government and engaging the local people.
