There are many ways we, as individuals, can help fight for elephants to help them remain wild and keep thriving within their family units and in their native lands.
Here are just a few ideas on ways you can help and make a difference.
Support/Donate to Reputable Conservation Organizations— Don’t worry, we’ve got a list for you. Wildlife Conservation Organizations.
Do not buy ivory products! Ivory belongs to elephants. Stop the demand, stop the trade, and save the elephants.
Educate yourself on the importance of elephants in their natural environments.
Do not support places that exploit elephants for entertainment purposes such as circuses, elephant rides, or with the main goal of profit and not the animal’s well-being.
Share your knowledge and spread awareness! Talk with your friends, family, and neighbors.
Start your own local project to help save elephants. Start a petition, organize a campaign group, coordinate a fundraiser, or provide educational demonstrations. Be creative & shine the light on elephants in your community!
Educate yourself and others on the struggles of human-wildlife conflict within communities in countries where elephants inhabit. Support organizations that aid in mediating those issues.
Lobby within your own cities, counties, and states to stop the sale of ivory locally. Contact your local senators and government officials to let your voice be heard.
Foster orphaned elephants and other wildlife! Do so by supporting conservation organizations that care for animals that have been separated from their herd/mother or injured due to the effects of poaching. You can foster an elephant at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust who rehabilitates orphaned elephants and reintegrates them back into the wild.
Only engage in ethical tourism. Be sure to travel with conservation driven, eco-conscious companies when visiting places that are home to elephants and other wildlife.
