SAVE ELEPHANTS - BUILD COMMUNITY
Every 15 minutes an elephant is killed for it's ivory tusks...
Elephants are a keystone species, meaning that without elephants, hundreds of other plant and animal species would cease to exist. Elephants are a critical part of the African ecosystem, but with only 400-600,000 elephants left in Africa, the illegal ivory trade is threatening to destroy the entire species beginning with the forest elephants in central Africa, which have decreased 64% in the last decade.
Say NO to IVORY
Elephantopia is a supporter of the GMFER (Global March for Elephants and Rhinos), a worldwide event each September/October to raise awareness about elephants and the illegal ivory trade. We have proudly signed letters alongside World Wildlife Foundation, International Fund for Animal Welfare and Elephants DC asking the president of China to ban ivory, as well as asking our own government here in the USA to take a stand against the illegal ivory trade.
Join the Herd with Elephantopia
We believe it takes a community to save elephants. We partner with Game Rangers International in Zambia for community development projects and to sponsor an orphaned elephant victim of the ivory trade, Kavala. Join the herd and support a project with us today - from volunteering, to donating, we have a spot for you to get involved!
