Protecting elephants to conserve the greater Mara ecosystem
A mixture of land-use changes resulting from human population growth, deforestation and poaching for elephants’ valuable ivory is causing populations to dwindle. Humans are encroaching upon historic elephant rangelands, and human-elephant conflict is on the rise. That, paired with the demand for ivory, means the illegal killing of elephants is at its highest level since the international ivory trade ban.
Elephants are in crisis.
MEP’s goals include focusing on the protection of elephants and the conservation of the Mara ecosystem by increasing our research efforts all while investing in the education of local communities who live alongside wildlife and the future generation of Kenyans who will inherit this complicated mission.
