Save Mali’s Elephants from Poaching

Poachers are taking a toll on the Elephants of Mali in western Africa. The elephants need your help. For nearly a decade the Mali Elephant Project (a partner project between the WILD Foundation and the International Conservation Fund of Canada) has successfully protected this herd by working with villagers to restore elephant habitat. Now, the project is rapidly adapting this strategy to confront poaching, including training armed rangers (who effectively stop poaching) to patrol the elephant range. However, this is an unexpected cost to the project, and urgently requires the assistance of a broad international movement of people with compassion for elephants.
