WHY WE CARE

It’s estimated that there were once 7-10 million African elephants roaming the African Continent while around 200,000 Asian elephants lived in the forests and grasslands of Southern Asia. Sadly, due to habitat loss and human conflict, both of these populations have dwindled severely. From 2016 to 2018 alone, an estimated 100,000 elephants were poached for ivory. That's essentially one elephant loss every 15 minutes—a 50 percent decline in population in the past 35 years. There are roughly 470,000 African Elephants left in the wild and less than 40,000 Asian elephants. The high rate of elephant deaths combined with their incredibly long gestation period (22 months) could lead to a world without wild elephants by 2025. With people being the #1 cause of this steady population decline, we feel that it is our duty to do what we can to bring it to an end. Together, we can create a sustainable future where elephants thrive.
