Welcome! We’re glad you’re here.

March for Elephants is a grassroots organization dedicated to promoting global awareness of the elephant crisis, advocating for cessation of poaching in all regions where elephants live, fiercely working to shut down the ivory trade, and raising the level of human consciousness to embrace the lives of elephants with reverence and humility. We uphold the belief that elephants are a nation unto themselves. Their lives reach beyond ours, and have meaning only they can comprehend.

March for Elephants strives to provide useful information and tools to enhance ownership and motivation for individuals who seek to carry out actions on behalf of elephants. For those who do, and for those who wish to learn about elephants, this is your community, an opportunity to find your herd. It is our fondest hope that you will join with us in our actions. We need nothing less than an army of people participating in the fight for survival of our beloved elephants. It will require sacrifice and generosity if we are to save these incredible beings.

March for Elephants is a 501c3 nonprofit organization run entirely by volunteers. Please join us so that we may ensure that these beloved creatures, who have walked the Earth for millions of years, will not disappear forever.
