HELP THE ELEPHANTS SURVIVE

welcome

IF WE DO NOTHING, THE ELEPHANTS WILL DIE OUT

In the last 100 years, Africa’s elephant population has declined by 97%! This decrease has been caused by the poaching for their ivory tusks, by hunters to show how tough they are, by farmers who have taken over the habitat and shoot elephants who come to eat, by diseases brought by humans, etc.

If no concerted action is taken, the elephant will soon become die out!

Elephants are the keystone of the ecosystem. Without elephants, several plant and animal species will not survive. It is important that elephants are preserved in their natural environment for future generations. Help prevent elephants from becoming extinct. With the global Elephant World Community we can make this happen.

OUR MISSION

Elephant World’s mission is to do everything possible to prevent elephants from going extinct and to do everything possible to ensure their future. Elephant World consists of two parts:

 

The conservation organisation, the Elephant Coalition and its global supporters.

The building, as an educational information and knowledge centre, is dedicated to the life – and survival – of elephants.

With the Elephant Coalition, which consists of a number of protection organisations from different countries, the problems and threats to elephants are regularly discussed together and solutions are proposed, which will be implemented in consultation with the ministry in the country concerned. This will drastically reduce the many problems and threats elephants face.

Our supporters, World Citizens from almost every country on earth, support the solutions of the Elephant Coalition. The more supporters there are, the more we can do for the elephants.

When the building is finished, visitors will be taken into the world of elephants in an educational way. There they can experience how large herds lived in the past and how the relatively small populations survive today.

How can you help?

The COMMUNITY

A group of people committed to elephant conservation. People from all over the world working together for one goal.

The building

An educational centre, which will be built in the Amsterdam area. Visitors will be able to view educational programmes about elephants, such as: The Life of the Elephant, Art Collection Elephants, Evolution & History, Protection. In the Protection Hall

the cooperating conservation organisations each have their own embassy.
Here they will tell the visitors about their work and the projects they support.

BUIlding together

DONATIONS

In order to realise World of the Elephant, we can use all the help we can get.
All donations, big or small, are more than welcome.

Our vision

In recent years, the living conditions of elephants almost everywhere have become increasingly worse. Threats from poachers, farmers, trophy hunters, wildlife traders and the expansion of human settlements is increasing. Our vision is that as people learn more about elephants and their way of life, they will better realise that elephants are indispensable to nature and wildlife.

Elephants are mammals, just like people, and have as much right to life as people do. Emotionally, we are very close and all the emotions that we have, elephants have too.

There are three important exceptions: money does not interest elephants, neither does power. As well as this, elephants do not claim territory.

YOUR HELP IS BADLY NEEDED

You can donate a few euros or more. Just once, per month…any help is welcome!

MONEY IS OF NO INTEREST TO AN ELEPHANT

NEITHER IS POWER

AND ELEPHANTS DO NOT CLAIM TERRITORY
