H.O.P.E. Humanitarian Operations Protecting Elephants

Criminal networks of poachers have adopted a new tactic in their war on Africa's elephants - cyanide poisoning. Inside national parks and private reserves, poachers are poisoning the water holes that elephants depend on, killing dozens of these great animals at a time, along with other wildlife, and pushing the species towards extinction. The ivory they collect from the carnage is then sold on the black market, with much of the money going to fund terrorist and extremist groups across Africa.
Humanitarian Operations Protecting Elephants (H.O.P.E.) is working to end the bloodshed. Working with our African partners we are putting together an on-the-ground effort that will increase the security of Africa's parks and reserves, making them save havens for elephants once again. Your support will strengthen our work, helping us to provide rangers and wildlife guardians with the training and equipment they need to protect Africa's elephants.
