WHAT WE DO

OUR VISION

Elephants for Africa is a charity that is committed to protecting the endangered African elephant through research and education.

Working towards human-wildlife coexistence, we conduct research to understand the ecological and social requirements of male African elephants, and put these into the context of human-wildlife conflict. Working in Botswana with local and international researchers to deliver scientific data to local decision makers, we also run education programmes that focus on developing the conservation leaders of the future and empowering local communities.

Elephants for Africa is registered charity in England & Wales (number 1122027) and registered NGO in Botswana (number CR12058)
The Problem

We are losing African elephants at an alarming rate. Less than 500,000 remain in the wild and 70% of these utilise areas outside of protected areas. 

The Cause 

Elephants are running out of time and space. Poachers are killing them for their ivory, and expanding human populations means that wild elephants are increasingly coming into conflict with human settlements and agricultural land.

The Solution 

We aim to understand the daily needs of elephants and humans and seek local solutions for local problems. Elephants for Africa strives to protect, conserve and educate to ensure a future for wild populations of African elephant and move towards humans and wildlife coexisting.

Aims

  1. To increase knowledge and understanding of male elephants, the main instigators of conflict with local communities
  2. To increase tolerance for wildlife, in particular elephants
  3. To empower and inspire the conservation leaders of the future
