WCS Elephant Partnership to Stop the Demand

Commitment by

Wildlife Conservation Society

In 2014, Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) committed to mitigating the wildlife poaching through 'Stop the Demand' pillar. WCS will partner with government, NGOs, and concerned stakeholders to create awareness on ivory trade and its impact on wildlife conservation and will focus on providing mechanisms for civil society to take action. A country-wide campaign, 96 Elephants, will be launched in the US to raise consumer awareness, aimed ultimately at producing legislative change for ivory moratoria, additional funding for on-ground protection in Africa whereas an online awareness campaign will be launched and awareness level will be monitored in China.
