Welcome to Action for Elephants UK
Action for Elephants UK is a grass-roots non-profit group working to help stop the slaughter of elephants and ensure their survival as a species. In Africa and Asia elephants are being poached for their tusks in unprecedented numbers – between 35,000 and 50,000 every year – simply to satisfy consumer demand for ivory trinkets. If they’re not being poached, elephants all over the world are suffering horrific cruelty and abuse in captivity – there is nowhere safe any more for these remarkable giants. Humanity has destroyed them – now it’s up to humanity to save them.
On our website you will find information about the poaching crisis and the ivory trade as well as links to other resources, including articles and videos about elephant behaviour and society. Please take a few minutes to learn about these supremely intelligent and emotionally sentient creatures, and to understand the scale of the suffering and genocide that’s depleted 95% of their population. Then please take the next step to help in whatever way you can to save them from vanishing forever.
