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.

Lions next in line of fire as US rolls back curbs on African hunting trophies

The Trump administration’s lifting of restrictions on importing elephant body parts from Zimbabwe and Zambia is not the last gift to hunting interests

Hunting interests have scored a major victory with the Trump administration’s decision to allow Americans to bring home body parts of elephants shot for sport in Africa. Another totemic species now looks set to follow suit – lions.

As the US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) was announcing it was lifting a ban on the import of elephant “trophies” from Zimbabwe and Zambia, it also quietly published new guidelines that showed lions shot in the two African countries will also be eligible to adorn American homes.

Trump sons’ hunting in focus as US lifts import ban on African elephant trophies

  • Obama administration imposed ban because of conservation concerns
  • Donald Trump Jr and Eric Trump are enthusiastic big game hunters

The Trump administration’s decision to loosen restrictions around the import of elephant trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia has turned attention back to the president’s family’s own connection to the controversial sport.

Donald Trump Jr and Eric Trump are prolific big-game hunters and during the 2016 campaign, images re-emerged of the pair on a 2011 hunting trip posing with animals they had killed on safari, including an elephant, a buffalo and a leopard.

Animals Strike Curious Poses by Elena Passarello review – brilliant essays on immortal beasts

The meanings of Dürer’s rhino, Mozart’s starling, Darwin’s tortoise and others explored with wild imagination and pyrotechnic prose

Elena Passarello starts this extraordinary book with the image of Yuka, a woolly mammoth chiselled from the softening permafrost by Siberian tusk hunters in 2010. First a rounded hoof comes into view, then a hollowed-out eye and finally the flank still bearing evidence of the gash that must have done for young Yuka – she was no more than 10 years old when she died – nearly 40 millennia ago. Most surprising of all, though, is the burning smoulder of her pelt, which has kept to its unconvincing ginger-red despite the passing centuries. Whoever knew that woolly mammoths shared their hair colour with dime-store dolls?

As Yuka is flopped on to the snowmobile it is not her odd dislocations – most of her spine is gone although her legs remain rigid – that qualify as one of the “curious poses” of the book’s title (taken incidentally from a line in “When Doves Cry” by Prince). It is what happens next, Passarello suggests, that stretches and shrinks Yuka into something truly strange. First she becomes the object of hard financial bargaining as the tusk hunters hide her carcass in a frozen cave and wait for the highest bidder. Then, when the scientists finally get their hands on her, she morphs into the poster child for a “rewilding” initiative that aims to make extinct breeds live again by splicing their ancient DNA into the embryo of their nearest living relatives.

Passarello moves between musicology, biography and the golden throat of a bird brain with virtuosic ease
