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.


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.


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, designed for university students or graduates pursuing a career in conservation, with skills in scientific data collection and analysis. These internships harness the skills of the interns and contribute to our monitoring work, behavioural studies, human elephant conflict or conservation education.
