Learn About Elephants

Through careful observation and study, researchers are learning more about elephants: the tremendous intelligence and emotional qualities that they exhibit in their daily behaviors and the broader contributions that elephants make as a keystone species in balancing their ecosystem.


The Need to Roam

African elephants once ranged for thousands of miles across the continent, their deep memory of where to find food and water guiding them. Today, many factors threaten the vast expanses and ancient migration routes that elephants rely upon to survive.


Human and Elephant Coexistence

As Africa’s growing human population expands into the vast savannahs where elephants once roamed freely, increased contact between the two have created risks for both.


Understanding Elephants

Technology is helping experts better understand elephants – their population trends, herd gatherings, migratory routes, and behaviors – while providing information that helps to protect them.
