Elephants teetering on the brink 


If we do not act, we will have to shamefully admit to our children that we stood by as elephants were driven out of existence.”-- WCS conservationists Samantha Strindberg & Fiona Maisels, writing in The New York Times

Across the globe, elephants are disappearing faster than our experts can keep track of them. 2011 was the deadliest year on record for elephants, and the latest figures from 2012 show that the slaughter of these magnificent creatures continues.

Well-funded and well-armed poachers are to blame. To combat them, we're putting our hundred-plus years of wildlife conservation expertise to work. Together, we have the power to save elephants – join us in this urgent fight against extinction with a generous donation today.
