Review for International Elephant Foundation, Azle, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
