Help end the ivory crisis by supporting our partners across the world. Every dollar donation is doubled and 100% reaches the project.
As long as ivory is valuable elephants will continue to die. STE works to share the true impacts of buying ivory and to end demand.
STE is after the masterminds of the ivory trade. With the help of powerful advocates we give elephants a fighting chance in the courtroom.
Our forces on the ground and in the air are guided by experience and high technology in their defence of elephants.
Elephants have no reason to attack humans unless in self-defence, but without STE’s innovative defences tasty crops can prove irresistible.
Solving the ivory crisis requires solid data on changing elephant populations. STE works to ensure accurate information reaches decision-makers.
The elephants of Samburu are one of the best-studied populations in the world, giving our researchers intimate insight into elephant lives.
STE studies elephant movements via satellite to learn how they use the landscape and so how to better plan for their survival.
STE is at the heart of a growing global coalition working to build a political wave that has the power to end the ivory poaching crisis.
Helping educate local children creates passionate ambassadors for elephants from the people with whom they share the landscape.
Elephants are among the world’s most intelligent animals. Through research, films, and talks we work to share our insights into their world.
Every year STE accepts a small number of university students or graduates seeking a powerful experience to launch a career in conservation.
STE helps elephant ranges get factored into development planning, essential if elephants are to have a future in a fast-changing Africa.
Reducing conflict between humans and elephants takes ingenuity, but is key to a more tolerant relationship between the two species.
Few protected areas are big enough for elephants. STE guides the creation of corridors that act as bridges for elephants and other wildlife.
Even elephants run from African bees. STE has used their fear to create fences for smallscale farmers that both protect crops and provide honey.
At least 33,000 elephants are being killed every year for their ivory. The Elephant Crisis Fund provides quick, efficient support to the most effective projects aimed at stopping the killing, thwarting the traffickers and ending demand for ivory. Created by Save the Elephants and the Wildlife Conservation Network, 100% of funds reach the field.
Each year, we accept a small number of interns to Save the Elephants in Kenya. These internships comprise 1-2 month professional placements with one of our research projects in Kenya. The programme is best suited to university students or graduates pursuing a career in conservation, with skills in scientific data collection and analysis.
Our unique brand of conservation education encourages students to become ambassadors for elephants and the rich environment in which they live. Our scholarship programme transforms the prospects of children that live in the elephant rangelands and forges important links between the worlds of both sponsor and student.
