Over the past three years, NGOs have launched multi-million dollar campaigns to highlight the plight of Africa’s elephants and raise funds to halt their slaughter. Yet elephants remain under siege, with some 100,000 elephants lost to poaching in that time alone.
The Real Status of Elephants
Responsible conservation should present considered facts and opinion; genuine action and accountability. Africa’s elephants may not be on their way to extinction, but in many regions, they are being lost with breathtaking speed. West Africa is almost devoid of elephants and a huge swathe of central Africa has lost its savannah herds. Tanzania and Mozambique are the current elephant killing fields, and central Africa’s forests are an unseen frontline where the future of the forest elephant is at stake.
Do Something Powerful to Protect Animals You Love
Over the next three years, hundreds of millions of dollars will pour into elephant conservation. What is heartening though is the increasing demand for results, with so much money and the future of Africa’s elephants at stake, both donors and recipients need to be held firmly accountable. It is the time for facts and focus. That's why Azoolu has compiled our list of loved and accountible organizations.
Elephants Without Borders
Since elephants don’t use passports, the notion of elephants and conservation without borders is crucial for preserving biodiversity and a healthy landscape. Using African elephants as an inspiration, EWB strives to identify wildlife migratory corridors, secure wild habitats and elevate conservation of all wildlife.Donate NowDonate Now
