Zambezi Elephant Conservation
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is a bureau within the Department of the Interior. Its mission is to work with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, and their habitats.
AWF protects nearly 40 % of Africa's elephants. Support our programs to stop elephant poaching and ivory trafficking.
Dear friends, I am a Mars scientist—not a wildlife activist. But I have been horrified to learn of the recent poaching of Satao, the beloved Kenyan elephant pictured here. He was poached for his ivory. The picture of his mutilated body is beyond words.
In my next series of blogs I will write about the elephant warriors, entertainers, artists, deities and icons...in hopes that you might find what an elephant is to you and also, that these remarkable creatures—that are so similar to us—are worth fighting for.
Have you ever visited an elephant graveyard?
