Our best chance to save the elephants

Dozens of heavily-armed hunters rode into a national park in Cameroon, butchered over 600 majestic elephants, then hacked off their faces for their tusks. Poachers have annihilated half of central Africa’s last elephants. And no one's been able to stop them.

Until now!

Brave investigators have gone undercover in poaching rings in eight African countries, and already 1,200 traffickers have been jailed!

It’s awe-inspiring stuff, and it’s won awards, but many funders are wary of going head-to-head with organised crime. We may be the best community to scale this extraordinary operation, fast.

Four elephants are killed an hour -- it’s a race against time before we lose these gentle giants forever. But if we each give now, this team can expand to more countries, lock up more kingpins and complicit officials, and we can campaign to rescue these beautiful creatures from industrial-scale slaughter.

No other effort is having this rate of success! Chip in now
