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

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.

留住大象,哪怕为了这些“功利”的理由

大象的DNA里可能藏着抗击癌症、延年益寿的秘密,哪怕为了人类自身,我们也该好好对待大象。(翻译:子明/chinadialogue)

现在或许正是大象种群最黑暗的时代。中国正在取缔国内象牙贸易,欧盟也将着手对付象牙走私,但偷猎者们还在继续他们的血腥交易。与此同时,森林正遭到破坏,象群的迁徙路线被截断,人类和大象之间围绕土地、食物和水源的竞争愈演愈烈

所以,现在必须让大家明白:保留大象的生存空间对人类自身益处多多。并且人类根本不需要特别做什么,大象自会找到自己的领地。

Why would Theresa May ditch a pledge to ban ivory trading?

The Tories’ manifesto has dropped a promise to outlaw the trade. Protecting wildlife should be a priority, not an option

Strange news: Theresa May has decided to drop a Tory pledge to push for a total ban on ivory trading (only the sale of ivory items produced after 1947 is prohibited). Why would she do that? Doesn’t she need votes? I thought nearly everyone loved elephants – who votes for helping to wipe them out? Apparently, wealthy antiques dealers. Lady (Victoria) Borwick, the Tory candidate for Kensington and the president of the British Antique Dealers’ Association, is an acquaintance of the PM; perhaps she was whom May had in mind.

This makes me feel horribly sick. Although Borwick and her colleagues are primarily concerned with pieces from the pre-1947 era, the fact these items remain in circulation arguably has a knock-on effect on how hunting is perceived. An elephant is killed every 15 minutes for its ivory, with more being shot for fun by big-game hunters – what is to stop a dishonest dealer passing off new spoils as old?

Live Q&A: What impact is human development having on the world’s elephant populations?

The conflict between humans and elephants for space and resources is driving the rapid decline of elephant populations. Join us on Wednesday 24 May from 1-2.30pm BST to discuss how elephants and humans can live together

This week an elderly man was killed by a wild elephant in central India as he picked tendu leaves in the Surajpur forest. A few days earlier, a father and his son were injured after two elephants wandered into their house in Tamil Nadu. As human populations grow and communities live in closer proximity to elephants, one of the world’s most unique and beautiful animals can become the most dangerous.

But human development is also contributing to the severe decline in elephant populations. Across Asia and Africa, elephants’ natural habitats are being destroyed by rapid urbanisation and industrial and agricultural expansion.
