Communication

Only by communicating to others what we have discovered about elephants will our work have a long-lasting effect. On a local level we aim to educate through our grass-roots conservation programs and community outreach program. Further a field we communicate our ongoing research through scientific papers, interviews, films and books. We also operate an elephant library to facilitate access to global elephant knowledge. Assisting lobbyists in educating policy-makers such as the judiciary, and government ministers around the world aims to secure legal protection for the elephants.

Spreading knowledge about elephants through all media is an important priority for STE. In doing so we are increasing conservation awareness both amongst those that live with elephants and around the world.

STE’s ‘Elephant News’ is a free email service providing interesting stories on both African and Asian elephants, based on daily searches of the web. This service is becoming more and more popular and keeps researchers, conservationists and elephant enthusiasts alike up-to-date on the current issues of the Elephant World.

The African Elephant Library is a collection of literature, reprints and reports on the biology, status and management of the African elephant. Originally based on the private collection of Iain Douglas-Hamilton, the library now contains over 4,500 articles and is one of the largest collections of references dedicated to the African elephant.

Aside from scientific papers, our researchers and trustees have written popular books and films to encourage knowledge and interest in elephants worldwide.

Donate

The fate of elephants is in the balance. The record price of ivory has attracted organised crime, rebel militias and even terrorist groups, fuelling a surge of poaching across the continent. Without the outstanding support and generosity of our donors, STE would not be able to continue securing a future for the elephants. We urgently need your support, while there is still time. You can be of vital assistance by donating to either our core funds or to any of 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.
