Support elephant conservation for one day

The Asian elephant is declining throughout its range and nearing extinction in the wild. The threat of poaching, habitat loss and increasing cases of human/elephant conflict requires extensive investment into anti-poaching programs, government liaison, community education and the establishment of good practices to protect the largest land animal from extinction.

Working in partnership with Fauna and Flora International (FFI) in Cambodia, Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors is investing in a range of strategies to prevent the destruction of habitat and helping local villages to co-exist with the elephant. Securing the income of farmers affected by the local elephant populations is a main priority in mitigating human/elephant conflict.
