US GOVERNMENT HELPS EPI TO KEEP AFRICA'S IVORY SECURE
The US Government has given the EPI Foundation almost $1 million to work with the governments of Gabon and Malawi in implementing its ‘Gold Standards’ procedures for the handling of ivory and other wildlife products.
THE ELEPHANT CRISIS
Africa’s elephants are disappearing. Some 20,000 are killed each year- that’s 55 every single day- mostly for the illegal ivory trade. The overall number has declined by about one third over the last decade. Many elephants now live in small and isolated populations; if current trends continue, they will be wiped out in the next decade.
"We can save Africa's elephants, but only if we all do our part. We need to come together to support National Elephant Action Plans."
