Save Elephants From Extinction

The unprecedented demand for ivory has led to a marked rise in poaching – recent projections put the annual death toll of African elephants up to a devastating 35,000. These colossal losses will reverse any gains in conservation efforts and threaten the species' long-term survival.

Our only recourse for saving elephants from extinction is extinguishing the insatiable demand for ivory.

The African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) is strongly urging all countries to destroy their stockpiles of ivory and establish a domestic moratorium on its trade. If broadly adopted, these decisive steps will cripple the ivory industry and allow Africa's elephant populations to stabilize and recover. Humans are the elephant's greatest threat... but we can also unite to serve as their greatest protector. Support the destruction of ivory stockpiles worldwide – add your name today.

Save Elephants From Extinction

Tell countries all over the world to destroy their ivory stockpiles. When the demand stops, the killing stops too.
