Mission


Faceless ElephantEvery 15 minutes an elephant is killed.

To feed the ivory trade, elephant poaching is hidden by corruption and war as it continues to flourish, growing unchecked in many parts of the world. At this rate, in an estimated 10 years the elephant will be extinct in the wild. The tragedy of losing this magnificent animal, having roamed the planet for over 50 million years, will be felt not only by our ecosystem, but by our next generation and all that follow. They will never see these iconic and highly intelligent, gentle animals in their natural habitat.

Ivory For Elephants (IFE.org is an acting non-profit and in process of registering as a 501 C 3 charity) was created and developed by Media, Advertising and Marketing professionals passionate about saving the Elephant. Together, with our supporting partners, our strategy is to bring lasting change by utilizing our position as communicators of news and information through our many media channels. We’ll educate those still demanding ivory about their effect on the elephant population and planet. We will achieve this by communicating the elephants’ plight, through our respected network of partners, to an influential and worldwide audience through print, online and other media channels, raising awareness to the critical level needed to bring lasting change. Our target audience for this mission is wide and multicultural; it will include projects targeting business people, government officials and private individuals (consumers) in the West, and key ivory demand centers in the East including China.

  • Harness the power and scope of both Traditional and Social Media to reach as many people as possible in the West, China and Africa and drive the message: Say No to Ivory.
