Commitment to Action

Partnership to Save the Elephants

Commitment by

Conservation International, Wildlife Conservation Society, International Fund for Animal Welfare, African Wildlife Foundation, The Nature Conservancy

In 2013, Wildlife Conservation Society, African Wildlife Foundation, World Wildlife Fund, International Fund for Animal Welfare, Conservation International and their partners committed to preventing further elephant poaching by directly targeting the chief drivers of poaching. This commitment takes a triple pronged approach by dedicating funding to stop the killing of elephants and stop the trafficking and demand for ivory. This coalition of organizations will work with African leaders to support their governments' efforts to curb elephant poaching and ivory trafficking. They will also work to 'stop the demand' internationally by building on current awareness campaigns and promoting engagement with consumer country governments. This collaborative commitment has potential massive impact for improving the future survival of the Africa's last great elephant populations.
