The African Elephant Fund is working to ensure a secure future for African elephants and their habitats.


Elephants are vital to our ecosystem. Yet the population of elephants is steadily dwindling, by almost 8 per cent every year.   We must step up efforts to manage and protect our biodiversity, including the African elephant.

New publication highlighting activities of the African Elephant Fund Secretariat launched recently in the CMS COP 12

 African Elephant Fund : Transforming Strategies into Action report demonstrates the relevance of the activities funded so far through the African Elephant Fund mechanism to the eight objectives of the African Elephant Action Plan (AEAP), mainly focusing on reducing illegal killing of elephants and illegal trade in elephant products, maintaining elephant habitats and restoring connectivity, reducing human-elephant conflicts (HEC), and increasing awareness on elephant conservation.

Thirty-seven (37) range states have done an excellent job at turning the African Elephant Action Plan into concrete actions. Thirty-three (33) projects have been implemented so far and we wanted to show the donors the positive changes their contributions have brought to local communities throughout Africa. The report also highlights testimonies from project beneficiaries and partners throughout the four regions where we intervene.

This report has been launched in the margin of the 12th CMS COP recently hold in Manila, the Philippines. The Report was possible thanks to the hard work and efforts of the AEF secretariat team, with special thanks to Barbara Matu who has worked extra hard for this report to become a reality.
