Urge Congress to support international conservation programs that protect elephants and countless other species.
The U.S. government banned the sale of ivory in 2016. Months later, China promised to do the same.
In 2016, we helped get this key legislation passed. It’s the most significant U.S. anti-wildlife trafficking legislation ever and it sends a powerful message to world leaders.
All told, we’ve taken nearly two million actions. Everything from petitions to calls to legislators to yoga and even origami, all for elephants.
No elephants were poached in Mozambique's Niassa National Reserve from mid-2018 to mid-2019. The massive protected area was once plagued by rampant wildlife crime.
To save them we must: Stop the killing. Stop the trafficking. Stop the demand. Help us by investing in their future.
We have field conservation operations in close to 60 nations and all the world’s oceans and we have supported the creation or expansion of roughly 245 protected areas.
We are leading the charge in the fight against wildlife trafficking, working hand-in-hand with law enforcement around the world to end the trade.
We work in 12 African countries that have elephants. We oversee ranger teams and manage national parks. We partner with communities and conduct pioneering research

Despite public outcry, poaching operations continue to grow in scale and sophistication, terrorizing and threatening not just wildlife but people too.
The ivory trade generates millions of dollars, which goes in part to support criminal syndicates that have been linked to extremist groups.
The majority of illegal ivory ends up as pointless trinkets and carvings, which are sold in markets around the world.
