Elephant Crisis Facts:
A renewed and virulent wave of poaching is threatening
Africa’s elephants by taking their lives to get to their tusks.
Every year at least 33,000 elephants are illegally poached, equating to one elephant every twenty minutes.
A world without elephants would be a tragic failure of our humanity. The Elephant Crisis Fund addresses this crisis.
The trade is primarily driven by a burgeoning demand for ivory in China. Ivory has played a centuries-old role in Chinese culture, and is seen as an important medium in art and as a symbol of wealth. The rapidly growing middle class in China is fueling demand and escalating the price of ivory ever higher.
Sophisticated criminal elements – the same groups that smuggle arms, people and drugs – orchestrate the poaching and smuggling of ivory. On-the-ground anti-poaching efforts are outsmarted and outgunned. Borders are too porous and unenforced to stop the flow of ivory. The demand in China seems insatiable.
The Solution: A Coalition to Reduce Poaching, Trafficking & Demand
The ivory crisis is now too big for any one organization to solve. It requires a multifaceted response from a coalition of effective leaders, NGOs, institutions, scientists, media, and governments. Work must be done by the coalition on all aspects of the crisis. To save elephants, we must identify and fund effective partners that address the supply, trafficking and demand for ivory.
