The Elephant Society needs your help.
The fight against pouching and illegal ivory trading takes place on many different fronts, allowing you to get involved where you like. Educating yourself, and those close to you, about the harm that illegal ivory trade has on wildlife and humans alike is the first step in solving the problem. The Facts about Poaching tab is a good resource to begin with.
Get involved with one of The Elephant Society or a partner charity's projects. Whether you're a student or someone looking to make a donation, there are many ways to help. Students and teachers are welcome to reach out (Contact Us) to see how their school can get involved in our School Visits (by masaai warrior Daniel Sambu) or Competitions both aimed at raising awareness.
For those looking to make a donation; The Elephant Society hosts an annual Gala Ball, in 2016 this will be held on the 10th of November, in Hong Kong. Direct donations, auction (which will be held on the night) and ticket proceeds will be forwarded to our Partner Charities.
Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of all involved in the abolition of wildlife parts trade; poaching is still a serious problem the world over. This leaves many young animals orphaned and without maternal care many would not be able to fend for themselves, driving the population to extinction. We encourage you to therefore join of the Adoption Programs hosted by our partner charities and help preserve a species.
Any contribution of time or donation is greatly appreciated by us here at The Elephant Society and conservation groups the world over. No matter how small you think your gift may be, every little bit counts.
