Mission

Our mission is to foster evidence-based conservation of wild Asian elephants and their habitats, through research, education, policy and advocacy. We support long-term research in Sri Lanka, and like-minded initiatives throughout Asia. By engaging with wildlife managers, conservation practitioners, educators, and local communities, we involve diverse stakeholders in raising awareness and imagining solutions.
