MISSION STATEMENT

IWE SAY NO to a world where elephants face daily killings from poachers and believe elephants deserve a long life that is safe and free. WE WILL NOT STOP until this becomes a reality. Our aim is to utilize advanced cutting edge technology to protect and preserve this majestic species:  African Savannah Elephant, the largest land mammal remaining on the planet.
