Stop Ivory - with the support of its partners - provides financial and technical support to governments to join the EPI.

Keep updated on what Stop Ivory and the Elephant Protection Initiative is doing to protect elephants and end the illegal ivory trade.

The African elephant is being eradicated. It is the systematic and calculated industrial slaughter of a species by organised criminals for profit. This has been stopped before. It can be stopped again.

Stop Ivory's success can be attributed to strong partnerships. Partners providing in kind and collaborative support and/or working with Stop Ivory on specific projects include: United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), CITES, Tusk Trust, The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, and Ernst & Young.

Whether government, INGO, NGO, private sector organisation or an individual, we need your help to end the ivory trade and slaughter of elephants.

We work with NGOs, corporations, individual donors, conservationists and governments to protect the world's remaining elephant populations by banning all domestic and international ivory sales and helping range land states to put policies in place that will ensure the long term survival of elephants.

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

- Sir David Attenborough
