Challenge

In the last forty years, African elephant populations have declined by over 70% as a result of the illegal wildlife trade, habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict. Today, as few as 450,000 elephants remain across Africa and Asia and it is more important than ever to protect this iconic species before its too late.

Solution

David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation works at all levels of the illegal wildlife chain across source, transit and demand countries to protect elephants in the wild and to fight for their survival. Our work ranges from engaging in the international policy arena to fighting for the toughest legal protection for elephants, to funding ground-based conservation projects to ensure elephants remain in their natural habitat and that human-elephant conflict is reduced.

Long-Term Impact

Elephants are one of the most vulnerable mammals on the planet and DSWF is committed to addressing the threats facing this iconic species. By adopting a holistic approach to conservation which tackles wildlife crime, protects elephants and engages with local communities, we continue our 35 year legacy to protect elephants in their natural habitat.
