This organization has contributed to over 2.6 million dollars to elephant conservation and research programs internationally - almost 90% of all funds raised go into these programs. IEF is supporting anti-poaching rangers in Kenya, Uganda, Zambia and Sumatra. Thousands of wildlife snares (which cruelly kill and maim) have been destroyed and human communities have been provided assistance to develop alternative sources of income to poaching and habitat destruction. IEF is well respected by their partners in elephant range countries and supporters around the world.

Over 95% of the monies received by the International Elephant Foundation goes directly to fund elephant conservation projects. About half goes to help African elephant and half to help Asian elephants. The African elephant is facing increased poaching for Ivory and many countries are struggling to maintain their numbers of elephants. Asian elephants are critically endangered and less than 35,000 are living in free-ranging conditions. Most of these elephants live outside protected National Parks, so they are facing pressure due to Human Elephant Conflict over scarce resources. The International Elephant Foundation is composed of elephant experts from many fields related to the care of elephants both in captivity and free-ranging environments. Elephants are at a critical point, help us to help elephants to survive into the future.

Changes as a result of training at an government elephant camp in Sumatra which now performs animal inventories of the national park, and anti poaching patrols on elephant back, as well as educational activities in surrounding villages.
