WCS Elephant Partnership to Stop the Killing

Commitment by

Wildlife Conservation Society

In 2014, WCS, in partnership with the Frankfurt Zoological Society, committed to bolstering the enforcement capacity of range countries to protect elephant populations currently experiencing high poaching levels. WCS will scale up law enforcement in 13 key protected areas and surrounding buffer zones in nine Central and East African countries - home to 45,000 elephants. This commitment invests directly in anti-poaching effectiveness by supporting park guards over the next three years through funding improvements in equipment, training, law enforcement monitoring, mission costs, aerial surveillance, intelligence gathering, and salary support.
