Save the Elephants is a research and conservation foundation aiming to protect African elephants from myriad human and climate-related threats. Throughout history, the stoic creature has inspired respect from the people that share the landscape with them, giving them a strong cultural significance. Save the Elephants conduct vital research on elephant ecology leading to solid scientific data that has helped shift international policy towards a better future for the species. They defend elephants against ivory poachers and traffickers, create innovative solutions to prevent elephants from raiding crops and spread awareness of the elephants plight by involving local people in research and education to develop a deeply sensitive and localised conservation ethic. They recognise that the best ambassadors for elephants are the people with whom they share their land.
