We support vital research on elephant behaviour and ecology and have
pioneered GPS radio tracking in Africa to provide fresh insight into elephants'
ways of life. By understanding elephant needs and movements, we can approach
conservation from an elephant's perspective
We assist wildlife departments in their fight
against ivory traders and poachers. We protect and monitor elephants
with aerial surveillance and early warning systems for poaching and
believe that a renewed ivory trade remains the greatest potential threat
We involve local people in research and education to develop a
conservation ethic based on local knowledge and elephant needs, and
recognise that the best potential ambassadors for elephants are the
people with whom they share their land.
Elephants are intelligent creatures with complex levels of consciousness
and we intend to bring this to the world's attention. We disseminate
this locally and internationally through films, publications, a
computerised elephant library, a news service and our website.
