Pleased to be at #EndWildlifeCrime conference with Elephant Protection Initiative today. The African elephant could be poached to extinction within our lifetime. But it doesn’t need to happen. We can save Africa’s elephants, but only if we all do out bit.

Save The Elephants and The Elephant Crisis Fund are at the IWT (Illegal Wildlife
Save The Elephants and The Elephant Crisis Fund are at the IWT (Illegal Wildlife Trade) conference in London this week where we hope governments will be inspired to recognise the significance of illegal wildlife trade, strengthen laws around wildlife trafficking and establish task forces that have the mandate and capacity to tackle high level traffickers. IWT is a form of serious organised crime, intimately linked with other crimes such as corruption, drug trafficking and terrorism, causing significant damage to fragile economies. Protecting wildlife requires a global coalition of support and we hope governments will redouble efforts against poaching, trafficking and illegal ivory sales. #IWT#illegalwildlifetrade#london#savetheelephants#elephantcrisisfund#IWT18#endwildlifecrime.

In South Sudan, the ECF has been supporting @thewcs, working with the South Sudan National Wildlife Service (SSNWS), with the implementation of its wildlife anti-trafficking and elephant protection strategies. Analysis of performance over the last two years has shown that the WCS / SSNWS anti-trafficking sniffer dog unit is having a disruptive impact at Juba International Airport, key road checkpoints, and surrounding landscape. In one recent seizure, 82 ivory bangles weighing 2.93 kg, one ivory ring and two rings made of pangolin scales were confiscated. To further combat the ongoing trafficking menace, WCS is also supporting the SSNWS with the establishment of its Wildlife Crime Database Unit. #antitrafficking#WildlifeConservationSociety#SouthSudan#ElephantCrisisFund#snifferdogs#SouthSudanNationalWildlifeService.

Great attendance at a press conference for the launch of a new STE report in into the illegal ivory trade in Myanmar.  The report, funded by the Elephant Crisis Fund and published by @savetheelephants, shows that one Myanmar town in particular, Mong La, on the border of China, has experienced a ‘prolific growth’ in ivory trading. At the conference in Nairobi yesterday, STE founder Iain Douglas-Hamilton, said “The new study into Myanmar’s illegal ivory trade shows the scale of the challenge that remains for elephants in the face of the ivory trade.” The report was dedicated to ivory trade specialist, Esmond Bradley Martin, who was tragically killed in Nairobi in February 2018. #illegalivorytrade#myanmarreport#savetheelephants

The knowledge required to protect the elephants of Garamba National Park in the
The knowledge required to protect the elephants of Garamba National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo is particularly complex, not just because of the vast geography of the park, but also because of the threat from both local and wide ranging poachers and wildlife traffickers. @AfricanParksNetwork, who assumed management of Garamba in partnership with the ICCN in 2005,  have taken a unique approach to understanding this regional threat by developing a cultural advisory programme. The programme aims to engage with local communities and build a constituency for conservation, where communities play an integral role in ensuring the long-term survival of protected areas like Garamba. So far in 2018, only two elephants have been confirmed as poached in Garamba.  #elephants#AfricanParks#DemocraticRepublicCongo#GarambaNationalPark. Photo: African Parks/Jean Labuschagne

Big news from ECF grantee @biglifeafrica who report that in the previous quarter, they not only had zero confirmed elephant deaths from either poaching or human-elephant conflict but also zero cases of elephants injured by humans. This may be attributed to regular patrols carried out by Big Life rangers and an abundance of water and pasture respectively thus resulting in less human elephant conflict. The ECF has been funding aerial patrols for Big Life Foundation.  #elephants#BigLifeFoundation#humanelephantconflict#patrols. Photo: @janewynyard

ECF partner, @africanparksnetwork, has been using collars since 2011 in Zakouma National Park to allow for continuous surveillance of the elephant population there by law enforcement patrols. As most of the collars were close to their battery expiry date, the ECF is funding 30 new collars, bringing the total to 36 active satellite collars being used to monitor and protect Chad’s largest remaining elephant population. #elephants#Chad#ZakoumaNationalPark#AfricanParks.

Part funded by the ECF and set up by @conservation_lower_zambezi with Zambia’s Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW), the Lower Zambezi Dog Unit is producing great results. The latest success of the unit comes after the unit raided a house that led to the confiscation of five home made muzzle-loading guns and the apprehension of two suspects following intel from Luangwa and Chongwe Investigations and Intelligence Officers while out on operation in the Rufunsa District. The unit aims to disrupt the movement of illegal wildlife products and to act as a deterrent to wildlife traffickers. #antitrafficking#wildlifecrime#elephantcrisisfund#ConservationLowerZambezi#Zambia#DogUnit#elephants.

Earlier this month, ten collars funded by the ECF were deployed on elephants in the North Luangwa Ecosystem and in Nsumbu National Park, Zambia, in a joint operation between the Zambian Department of National Parks and Wildlife and ECF partner, @frankfurt.zoological.society (FZS). Data from these collars will allow law enforcement managers proactively deploy and guide anti-poaching units. Greater understanding of elephant movements, visualised on the Save the Elephants’ tracking app (powered by Vulcan), will also help inform wider law enforcement planning and assist in mitigating human elephant conflict. #elephants#FrankfurtZoologicalSociety#DNPW#ElephantCrisisFund#Zambia#NorthLuangwa#NsumbuNationalPark.
