Commitment to Action

Stop the Poaching, Trafficking, & Demand For Ivory

Commitment by

Save The Elephants

In 2014, Save the Elephants, in partnership with Northern Rangelands Trust, Kenya Wildlife Service, Wildlife Direct, WildAid, Stop Ivory, and BornFree, and Wildlife Conservation Network, committed to work with government authorities and other nongovernmental organizations to contribute to resolving the current ivory crisis that is decimating elephant populations throughout the continent. Over three years, Save the Elephants aims to: 1) stop the killing of elephants through facilitation of anti-poaching enforcement in African range states; 2) stop the trafficking of ivory by supporting efforts to strengthen legislation, law enforcement, and judiciary in range states and monitor unregulated domestic ivory markets; and 3) stop the demand for ivory by raising awareness about the impact and risks of ivory sales to the survival of the African elephant, and urge behavioral changes that will reduce consumption in key ivory-consuming countries.
