International Elephant Foundation

IEF is an amazing organization. Within the last year alone they have rallied and attacked EEHV (elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus) which is a fatal disease that kills 1 in 4 baby elephants. There's no cure, and IEF is focusing their efforts to find a cure. This is truly important work that people need to know about.

The IEF is the absolute best organization concerning elephants. Their work to help saved this endangered species is priceless and they are infinitely passionate about it! Not only does the IEF do amazing work but they are run like charities should be--as little administrative bureaucracy as possible so that all donations reach the elephants themselves. So many animal organizations use animals to raise money but end up never actually helping them, the IEF is the exact opposite. Everyone there lives and breathes elephants and devotes endless time and energy for the cause.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've worked with elephants in captivity for almost 10 years and have seen first hand how magical they are but also how serious the threat of extinction is. In my time in the industry I've seen the IEF make real progress and get results on a variety of research for elephants like artificial insemination, elephant-specific diseases, etc. They've also done outreach to help elephant keepers in their native lands learn to care for their elephants in new and better ways.

If I could I would give the IEF unlimited funding and raise their visibility so more people would know about them and donate.
