Building a community of trusted partners to conserve the greater Mara ecosystem is essential to the sustainability of MEP’s objective to protect elephants. MEP addresses the immediate need to save elephants in crisis. We work with others to support long-term strategies to protect elephants through inclusion land-use planning and to curb international ivory demand. Partnerships with governmental and non-governmental organizations and local stakeholders are essential as we strive to create a future for wild elephants.
ESCAPE Foundation, Inc., Endangered Species Conservation And Protection Exchange, is the primary funder of the Mara Elephant Project. Our mission is to protect and restore endangered wildlife species globally by funding boots on the ground initiatives and well-informed charitable partners.
