One year ago, WCS launched the 96 Elephants campaign to stop the killing, stop the trafficking, and stop the demand for illegal ivory.
Since then, half a million of you have taken action, from signing petitions to contacting state and federal officials, posting on social media or making a donation to support elephant-saving programs. We have 160 partners and supporters in all 50 states and 194 countries. And it is making a real difference for elephants, with more trained park guards on the ground, increased aerial anti-poaching surveillance flights and sniffer dog units, and new and stronger government partnerships.
Take a quick look at this short video to celebrate all we’ve accomplished together in this first year alone.
As you can see, we've claimed significant victories for elephants but this battle is far from finished. There is so much more for this community to do in the coming year but for now, thank you for joining the herd. Together we will not be remembered as the generation that let elephants go extinct.
