Help End the Elephant Genocide

Please click HERE to take action (this is for US only)

If African elephants ever needed your voice, it is now. During the time you take to read this alert, at least one elephant will be killed by poachers…one elephant every 15 minutes!

Some estimates put numbers of remaining African elephants as low as 400,000 individuals. With 25,000 elephants killed for their tusks in 2011 alone, and at least four elephants poached every hour, they may be heading into extinction within the next decade!

Elephant families depend on their matriarch’s experience and incredible amount of knowledge and memory of the vast landscape to find food, water holes and shelter. Elephants have a highly complex social structure, where death is mourned and grieved, and the birth of each baby elephant causes a social gathering of excited members within and outside the immediate elephant families.

In elephant culture, not only numbers matter, but the quality of relationships is meaningful and they too need to be preserved!

The USA is the second largest consumer of ivory, closely trailing China. The US Government has the power to make a huge difference for African elephants. They need to show political will and we need to show them that we expect strong and urgent action.

Your action to help African elephants is needed today—right now…

Please sign our alert which will send a letter to the Federal Advisory Council on Wildlife Trafficking, which will meet on Monday, December 16, 2013, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Washington D.C., to discuss the National Strategy to Combat Wildlife Trafficking.

we are a family
just as you are.
we travel together,
near and far.
but sadly our
species is being
decimated by greed,
by humans oblivious
to our wants and our needs.
please stand up for our herds,
our tusks and our land.
we count on you to make
those who do not yet,
start to understand.
