Who We Are

Elephant Cooperation is a non-profit devoted to raising awareness of the African elephant crisis and supporting existing NGOs who embrace our cause. Please join us on our mission to save the 350,000 elephants left in Africa. The odds seem overwhelming, but together we can accomplish the challenging feat of saving these iconic, gentile giants we love so dearly!

Over the last several decades, the population of African elephants has steeply declined from millions to roughly 350,000. In 1976, there were around 316,000 elephants in Tanzania alone. By 2014, roughly 43,000 were left. There continues to be a 30% decline year over year of elephants in Africa. Their slow breeding process is not enough to keep up with the horrific and unethical ivory trade industry.

Elephant Cooperation uses unique approaches to support protection, awareness, and communities in Africa.

Below are some of the initiatives underway to save and protect the African elephant.

Drone Programs

Elephants are notorious for wandering away from protected spaces and national parks in search of newly-grown crops. One hungry mammal can be devastating for a farmer’s crop, leading villagers to throw stones or attack the elephants. Some farmers have even allowed poacher intervention to eliminate the threat of crop damage. The drone program, however, has found that the employment of remote-controlled drones has had 100% success rate in effectively herding elephants away from local farms. Also, drones help report poachers quickly, it gives the Rangers a greater perimeter of cover when patrolling high-profile areas. Drones act as a form of surveillance and double up as a “scare” tactic against poachers.

Supporting Rangers

According to the International Ranger Federation, more than 100 rangers were killed in the line of duty in 2015. Without the rangers, elephants would be in even more danger. Rangers are risking their lives to protect Africa’s treasured wildlife. This means sacrifices like long periods away from home and small pay. You can help make their lives easier by buying them items they desperately need.
