MISSION STATEMENT

In a world where elephants face daily killings from poachers, we believe that every elephant should live a long life that is safe and free of poaching. We also believe that surveillance technology used to monitor the movements of poachers and alert the rangers and authorities before an elephant is harmed is critical to their survival. Our aim is to protect, preserve and prosecute those responsible for killing these majestic and sentient beings.
