The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?

Ivory Burn April 30th Nairobi National Park

Stop Ivory as a key partner of the Kenya Wildlife Service and the Government of Kenya is supporting preparations for the destruction of 105 tonnes of ivory from approximately 6700 elephants – the largest ever destruction of elephant tusks in history.

From pioneering the inventory technology that allows for the responsible accounting of confiscated ivory – and its ultimate disposal – to the transport of ivory from around Kenya and its preparation at the burn site, the Stop Ivory team are providing full support to this momentous event.

We believe that elephants are #worthmorealive and we should all work together to #stopthetrade and to #lightafire under all ivory.

CITES Photo Exhibition – Make History Happen!

You have an opportunity to help tell the story of Africa’s remaining elephants, through a┬ástunning visual exhibition, to those who will decide their fate this September at CITES. If we’re successful, it could lead to the closing of ivory markets – which is the true driver of elephant’s demise.


Please Support Us

Our Elephants have so much to teach us. Do we dare imagine what we’ll say to our grandchildren as we show them pictures of elephants on Instagram while we awkwardly explain away their complete eradication under our very noses?

Let us stand together in the unity to create a different reality for the generations who will follow us. Support our campaign.
