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.

  • Our Main Objectives

  • Grow our network of supporters globally through education about the plight of the elephant.

By creating this comprehensive and critical mass of support we can force change through more protection of the existing elephant stocks, while educating to reduce the demand and stop the trade.
  • Educate the core demand centers for ivory products, specifically China’s growing middle class, (growth estimated at 200 million people per year) of the consequences of buying ivory, and how it is driving the elephant to extinction.
  • 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.
  • Develop a comprehensive global database of supporters (C Suite and Consumer) we can offer to sponsors through multiple media channels. These funds will be channeled directly to our partners’ approved programs to protect and save the elephant.
  • Create engaging and educational print and online media products for our partners that demonstrate the value of our reach, in order to generate company sponsorships. Funds derived will go directly to causes focused on saving the elephant and rhino from the ivory trade.
  • Secure company sponsorships for on-the-ground projects including elephant sanctuaries, security fencing and vehicles, ranger stations, and for support programs including clean water, schools and education on sustainable programs including elephant tourism.
  • Generate funds from individual and corporate donors who want to support the great work our partners are doing against an increasing threat with limited resources.

Elephants needing a room: hawkmoths on the march for a pupal pad

A herd of elephant hawkmoth caterpillars is trooping across my garden to pupate

Caterpillars are on the march. In the past week I’ve found several elephant hawkmoth caterpillars trooping across my garden. These are arguably the most subtly beautiful of the charismatic hawkmoth grubs. They are deep brown and charcoal grey with four arresting “eyes” of black, brown and silver – part of an armoury of deterrents against voracious birds, which includes the sudden switching into “snake” mode when disturbed, to discombobulate predators.

The adult moth takes its name from the caterpillar’s trunk-like snout, although its bewitching pink hued wings are also the colour of a cartoon elephant.
