Our Accomplishments

We're active at all levels to stop the illegal ivory chain. That includes everything from supporting law enforcement and case building to monitoring the judiciary and aiding customs officials.

We work with law enforcement to shut ivory trafficking networks in Africa. In January 2017, our Wildlife Crime Unit in northern Congo was part of a big bust that yielded over 150 lbs. of ivory.

At the national level, we are engaged across Africa in helping countries like Gabon, Tanzania, and Uganda develop National Elephant Action Plans and Strategies.
