Elephant emergency: Stop wildlife traffickers now!

Jul 5, 2023

*50,000 elephants are massacred for their tusks, every year — and there are only 450,000 left!*
We’re running out of time for these magnificent animals.

*Experts agree: to stop the carnage, we have to target the criminal gangs and corrupt officials* who are orchestrating the mass murder of Africa’s
elephants.

*And we have a chance to do exactly that. *

Working in nine African countries, *a tiny team of undercover investigators is infiltrating the criminal networks* and bringing them to justice.
They’re ruthlessly effective — taking down illegal ivory syndicates responsible for killing up to 100,000 elephants!

We can’t all be undercover investigators — but *we can fund hundreds of new investigations *to lock-up the bloodthirsty criminals getting away with murder. Our small donations, pooled from across the planet, will have a direct impact in the fight for elephants.

Let’s power these investigators and accelerate Avaaz campaigns to protect wildlife and their vanishing habitats. *The more we raise, the harder we can fight for these magnificent animals.

**Donate what you can now**

I’LL DONATE $40

I’LL DONATE $60

I’LL DONATE $100

I’LL DONATE $150

I’ll DONATE $250

OTHER AMOUNT

As elephants become increasingly rare, *hippos are now being butchered for their massive teeth. *The war on wildlife is insatiable — but undercover investigations by the EAGLE Network are having a massive impact. We’re talking an average of 3 major arrests every week!

*By pooling our donations, we could now power hundreds of new investigations* — and accelerate our fight to win the laws and treaties needed to protect life on Earth. If we raise enough, we could:

– *Train and sustain dozens of undercover investigators *to crack open some of the world’s most-wanted wildlife trafficking networks;
– *Scale up the number of anti-trafficking investigations* in nine countries, potentially arresting hundreds of wildlife traffickers;
– *Fund a huge delegation of indigenous leaders* to meet decision makers at an upcoming nature summit in Brazil; and,
– *Power hard-hitting Avaaz campaigns* to protect the natural world and preserve the delicate web of life.

These brave investigators are one of the very last lines of defence for animals on the edge of existence. But without urgent funding, their work could grind to a halt. We cannot let it happen — *let’s supercharge their investigations to help stop the elephant massacre:*

Avaaz is no stranger to the fight against poaching. Together we funded a major study that exposed the sale of illegal ivory in Europe — leading to a full ban on ivory sales! We’ve also supported wildlife rangers across the continent, and provided critical funding during the Covid pandemic. Now we have a golden opportunity to turn up the heat even more. From across the planet, let’s unleash an almighty stampede to save the elephants!
