what we do

Do exceptional science and get it out there. The core of our work is science. Science is knowledge and the foundation to truly understand how we can best serve elephants and the planet. However, science is meaningless if it doesn’t transform into action. We conduct basic and applied science- studying elephants in Africa and in zoos. Then, we quickly apply what we have discovered. Purpose-driven research is at our core, addressing the most relevant challenges and issues that will result in the most help. We find answers- and work diligently to implement our findings for real change before it’s too late.
