DON’T WAIT! AN ELEPHANT IS SLAIN EVERY 15 MINUTES - AND COUNTLESS OTHERS ARE SUBJECTED TO CRUEL AND INHUMANE TREATMENT EVERY MINUTE OF THEIR LIFE!
It is time to end the senseless slaughter of this iconic keystone species. The sad reality is that an elephant is slain every 15 minutes for its ivory tusks and hides which are used for unproven medicinal purposes, to satisfy the market for ivory trinkets and jewelry, and to fund terrorists and their global efforts. But not only are elephants being slain for their ivory and hides, they are also being subjected to a life of cruelty either by being forced to work to harvest timber or being cruelly trained as a performance animal.
The Elephant Project, a 501(c)3 non-profit, has developed new ideas and new solutions to address the threats to elephant survival, providing them a new future free of cruelty and death at the hands of humans. Our THREE-PRONG STRATEGY is designed to provide immediate protections to elephants while developing long term sustainable solutions to end this epic struggle.
1| END THE MARKET FOR IVORY AND OTHER ELEPHANT PARTS - We will help reduce the markets for elephant products by challenging governments anywhere in the world whose policies and actions (including corruption) contribute to the senseless slaughter and inhumane treatment of elephants.
2| END HUMAN-ELEPHANT CONFLICT - We will help end the exponential growth in human-elephant conflict through the construction of fencing separating humans and elephants; helping to restore elephants natural habitats reducing their need to search out new areas to live; and relocate elephants from areas where they are in danger due to human-elephant conflicts, environmental challenges, inhumane treatment, or poachers.
3| DEVELOP COMMUNITIES AND SANCTUARIES THAT WILL PROVIDE PERPETUAL FUNDING FOR THE CARE AND PROTECTION OF WILD AND CAPTIVE ELEPHANTS - We will create a safe, secure place where elephants live in peace by fostering an environment through innovative corporate, government, and non-profit partnerships, where protecting elephants and ensuring their protection produces prosperity for the people. This solution based on free and fair market principles will prove that ensuring the safety and security of an elephant is more valuable to them than a dead one.
Our innovative solutions will help stop the senseless killing of elephants and the cruelty they face around the world. With your help we can make them a reality and bring an end to this epic struggle.
Our goals are ambitious – but doable. Challenging - but transformational.
END THE KILLING AND CRUELTY TODAY. NEW IDEAS. NEW SOLUTIONS. A NEW FUTURE.
