Elephant News Service

The subscription-based Elephant News Service is a substantial resource for elephant lovers, scientists and conservationists across the globe. It comprises all articles, stories and publications on elephants and elephant conservation from around the world. The service is managed by Save the Elephants however the stories published on the listservs do not necessarily reflect the views of STE.  

The Elephant News Service subscription process gives people the option to subscribe, unsubscribe, as well as receive a daily digest option. The daily digest provides subscribers with one email a day featuring all the stories rather than receiving each individual story one by one. To set up and manage subscriptions, change email address, etc, please go to the following pages:

Save the Elephants News Listservs Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The mission of the listservs is to fairly represent and circulate what is reported in the media on elephants in the wild, and to share the latest research and findings that can inform elephant conservation, care and knowledge. There is one listserv for Asian elephants, and one for African elephants. The stories do not necessarily reflect the views of Save the Elephants.

At the time of this writing, there are 1,432 subscribers on the African elephant news list, and 909 subscribers on the Asian elephant news list. Most of those are overlaps, that is, many people are on both lists. Sometimes a story is sent around to both lists that speaks of one continent or species, but is believed to be of interest to all.

Given the quantity of news stories that are published, it is impossible to check the veracity or accuracy of articles. We obviously cannot guarantee the accuracy of any news story. If a reader finds inaccuracies in an article, we are happy to circulate corrections, if these can be verified.

Please feel free to send in the story or a link to the story. Keep in mind wild elephants are our subjects, not captive.

No, that is not the purpose of this listserv.

No, this listserv is only for distribution of news about elephants in the wild.

Since we don’t consider blog posts to be straight news items, we gather ones that may be of interest and every month or so send around a list of miscellaneous items that includes blog posts, videos, upcoming talks, new books, and various other resources. Feel free to email anything to Melissa you think should be included.

As long as it concerns and can benefit elephants in the wild, yes.
