To all our friends far and wide, season's greetings and a happy new year!
TO PROTECT ELEPHANTS IT'S
TIME TO LOOK BEYOND IVORY
The EPI Foundation has a new vision for elephant protection. We believe conflicts between people and elephants over land and dwindling natural resources pose the greatest threat to the survival of the African elephant. See our video from Amboseli National Park, Kenya, on the cost of human-elephant conflict.
HALO TRUST JOINS THE EPI AS AN NGO PARTNER
The EPI Foundation is delighted to announce that the Halo Trust has become an EPI partner, the 34th non-governmental or inter-governmental organisation to declare its support for our objectives. The Halo Trust works in 25 countries and territories across the world, clearing landmines and explosives left behind by war.
"We are delighted that the EPI is re-positioning its focus and expertise to prioritise human-elephant conflict. Together we need to find sustainable solutions, where people can prosper and our remaining elephants are safe. The collapse of tourism revenue as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic makes the challenge all the more urgent. We believe the EPI, with its continent-wide membership, is well placed to help find solutions"
