How to Help Elephants

Ivory poaching, habitat loss, and human-elephant conflict are decimating elephant populations around the world. Some sources estimate that an elephant is killed every 15 minutes—at that rate, there won't be any elephants left in the wild by the year 2025.

 

One of the easiest ways you can help is by giving to one of the organizations working tirelessly to ensure that elephants have a future. To make it easy for you, we've compiled a list of our favourite elephant charities—along with live links to their donation pages.
