Your tax-deductible gift will save elephants!

Elephants are being slaughtered in unthinkable numbers. In many places in Africa, little stands between elephants and sophisticated criminal networks that will stop at nothing for their valuable ivory tusks.

The situation is dire for elephants, but you can help us save them. Make a tax-deductible gift to WCS before December 31.

The WCS Malaysia and WCS Indonesia programs both work on orangutans.

As more of their habitat is logged or converted to palm oil plantations, orangutans continue to decline. Adding to their vulnerability, these apes produce only one offspring every five years or so, live at low densities, and require large home territories—a problem as human activities increasingly fragment their jungle habitats.

Ensuring a future for these apes requires improved law enforcement, expanded protected areas, effective protection of those reserves, and ensuring that logging is done in ways that allow wildlife to survive within forest reserves. WCS is working to implement these conservation measures across the orangutan's remaining range.
