A non-profit organization for environmental preservation.



ElephantsNature's Guardian is dedicated to helping preserve endangered species, like the elephant.

A 1990 worldwide ban on ivory trade has helped protect the elephant population but is not enough to ensure their future. In Kenya, strong poaching controls are showing good results as the countries elephant numbers have been increasing by 1,000 animals per year. Kenya has burned tons of ivory in an effort to draw attention to the temptation posed by such stockpiles -- reaffirming its commitment to save the elephant. Kenya also wishes to draw attention to the tremendous economic cost to the African nations posed by the ivory ban. Conservation groups around the world have pledged assistance to those countries bearing this economic burdon, but little has actually been done. Kenya's Minister for Tourism and Wildlife Noah Katana Ng'ala strongly urges "decisive action to save the elephant from extinction."
