Our Mission

Our mission is to secure a future for elephants and to sustain the beauty and ecological integrity of the places they live; to promote man’s delight in their intelligence and the diversity of their world, and to develop a tolerant relationship between the two species.

Why Save Elephants?

Elephants are Africa’s gardeners and landscape engineers, planting seeds and creating habitat wherever they roam.

Without urgent action to save their species, elephants could be gone from the wild within a single generation.

100,000 elephants in Africa were killed for their ivory in just three years between the years 2010 & 2012.

Our Projects

Though primarily based in Samburu National Reserve, Kenya, we have projects across Africa focussing on radio-tracking elephants and community conservation carrying out rigorous studies of elephants, including elephant collaring and more recently, sophisticated elephant tracking techniques. The mission of STE is to secure a future for elephants in harmony with people. Our rationale is to plan conservation of elephants and their environment through research on movements, ecology, and behaviour, and through community programmes, and to look at conservation from an elephant’s point of view which we do through our projects.

How You Can Help

Over the last years our world-leading conservation efforts have been possible thanks to the dedication and generosity of loyal supporters. To join them you can donate in a number of ways:

Elephants are fast disappearing from the wild. Without urgent, international action they could be gone within a generation. The Elephant Crisis Fund provides rapid, catalytic support for the most effective projects designed to stop the killing, thwart traffickers and end the demand for ivory. 100% of all donations reach the field.

Save the Elephants is funded almost entirely by private donations. It is only through the generous support of donors that we are able to continue our important elephant conservation work. We rely entirely on funds, grants and donations from around the world, so thank you for helping us to secure a future for these fascinating creatures.

Our unique brand of conservation education encourages students to become ambassadors of their rich environment. We also give opportunities to friends around the world to help educate young minds and improve the infrastructure of their schools. Sponsor a child & help build a future for wildlife.

Did you know?
That the African savannah elephants are the longest distance mover of seeds?
A study shows that they can transport seeds up to 65 kilometers! This is 30 times
farther than savannah birds carry seeds. We knew that elephants play a significant
role in maintaining the genetic diversity of trees in the savanna, but studies like this
make it all the more clear.
*​In support of the March for Science which occurred in several cities across the
world last weekend, STE is dedicating time this week to partners and researchers
who, like us, are using robust science to secure a future for elephants.
