The iconic African Elephant, our largest land mammal, has long been one of the planet’s most celebrated species. It plays a critical role in the biodiversity of its own habitat, while its remarkable intelligence gives it a unique appeal that draws admirers from all over the world. This benefits the communities and economies of the countries that form part of its range.
The poaching of elephants and the trafficking of ivory is largely controlled by organised crime and is out of control across much of Africa today. An estimated 100,000 elephants were killed in Africa in the last 3 years alone. This does not just pose a threat to elephant populations; it threatens the integrity of whole ecosystems, as well as local livelihoods, national economies and regional stability.
The Elephant Protection Initiative (EPI) was launched by Tanzania, Gabon, Botswana, Chad and Ethiopia in February 2014. It calls for elephant range states, partner states, Non-Governmental Organizations, International Government Organizations, private citizens and the private sector to work together to deliver a comprehensive, cohesive response to the Elephant Crisis.
