Why Stop Ivory

An independent organization, with a high profile board and advisory panel from diverse industries, Stop Ivory takes a collaborative approach to combating the elephant crisis in partnership with Governments, NGOs, IGOs and the Private Sector, engaging with experts from all sectors, to fast-track results.

Stop Ivory’s small, highly efficient and skilled team provides direct meaningful support to National Governments and Wildlife Agencies to build political consensus behind the EPI.

In just 12 months, Stop Ivory has established relationships at the highest levels of government in key African Elephant Range States – including Chad, Congo, Ethiopia, Gabon, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.

It is operating under formal agreements with countries across Africa; delivering on the ground; and is engaged in discussions with countries and organisations worldwide.
