International Elephant Foundation

The International Elephant Foundation (IEF) is a non-profit dedicated to the conservation of African and Asian Elephants worldwide. The mission of the IEF is to support and operate elephant conservation and education programs in managed facilities and in the wild, with an emphasis on management, protection and scientific research.

IEF annually gives grants to organizations and projects in Africa and Asia that benefit wild elephant populations and also sponsor research that can advance our knowledge of elephant health and population genetics.

Through these grant recipients, IEF supports anti-poaching patrols, community support, reducing human/elephant conflict, in-country capacity building, and habitat protection for a multitude of other species.
