Mission

1. Creating awareness of the existential threat to elephants. This includes giving television, magazine and newspaper interviews, social media interest, updating our subscribers with bi-weekly newsletters, creating scholarly papers about the state of African and Asian elephants, creating quality content on our website, engaging one-on-one conversations with both individuals and groups and holding fundraisers. 2. Seeking a safe, natural environment for all elephants. This means stopping the poaching and hunting of elephants. Freeing elephants who are being used for research, zoos, rides, petting or entertainment. And, ensuring that elephants are free to roam literally thousands of acres with their families where they can forage for food in climates remaining above 50◦F / 10◦C.

What we aim to solve

The challenge we seek to overcome is the existential threat to elephants. This challenge is described with detail in EXECUTIVE BRIEFING: AFRICAN ELEPHANTS by Phillip Hathaway. This is a scholarly paper, which is 36 pages in length, supported by 61 references and fully illustrated. Therefore, it is too large to be posted here. So we cordially invite you to visit us at ElephantRescue.Net to read to this timely paper. It is also important to note that we are presently engaged in the rescue of a large herd, which will be one of the larger, but certainly not the largest, rescues of African Elephants.

Herd Rescue, 2017-2018 PROGRESS REPORT

Beginning in April of 2017, we have been focusing on finding a proper home for a large herd elephants who must be moved from their present home or killed by hunters.

I have a victory to share.

While we have known the general area and country where we had hoped to relocate the herd, now we know the precise location of their now home. And, because we have been given this exact local, we now have more confidence that the government of that country is openly working with us to welcome this imperiled herd into their new home.

This is a big victory! Particularly, since a Culling Permit to kill them was approved some time ago and will be most definitely implemented unless they are moved.

This is a big step forward since a Culling Permit to kill them was approved some time ago and will be most definitely implemented unless they are moved.

With the help of world class experts on the ground, I have identified a area in which plenty of food and water is available. The climate and terrain is excellent. There is neither a hunting nor a poaching threat. Moreover, we can transport the entire herd by truck, rather than air cargo planes, which I had previously anticipated.

I am keeping this location a secret for now because several individuals and, I am told, hunting organizations want my plans to fail. Soon, however, I hope to share all the details with you.

Now, I am concentrating on (1) governmental approvals which, at this juncture, I expect to be approved in a timely manner, and (2) raising the money to fund this operation.

It has been estimated by specialist who have decades of experience moving elephants that the cost will be at least $200,000 or only $2,500 for each elephant. I feel this is an exceptional bargain.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are clearly described in THE PLAN TO SAVE AFRICAN ELEPHANTS by Phillip Hathaway. This is nine pages in length and, consequently, is too large for this box. So we cordially invite you to visit us at ElephantRescue.Net to read to this timely paper. It is also suggested that interested parties read my letter to the Ambassador to Botswana describing LIVING OASIS. And, we are presently engaged in the rescue of a large herd, which will be one of the larger, but certainly not the largest, rescues of African Elephants. Information about this rescue can be read in the NEWS section of ElephantRescue.Net.

Our strategy is revealed in THE PLAN TO SAVE AFRICAN ELEPHANTS by Phillip Hathaway. However, it is nine pages in length and is too large for this box. So we cordially invite you to visit us at ElephantRescue.Net to read to this timely paper. Please click The Plan in the menu bar. It is also suggested that interested parties read my letter to the Ambassador to Botswana describing LIVING OASIS. Please also note that we are presently engaged in the rescue of a large herd, which will be one of the larger, but certainly not the largest, rescues of African Elephants. Information about this rescue can be read in the NEWS section at ElephantRescue.Net.

Because we have established rapport at the higher levels within the Republic of Botswana, where half of all African elephants live, and rapport with professionals who are among the most qualified to address challenges encountered on the ground in elephants ranges, our capabilities are truly excellent. We can quickly organized a world class team of wildlife experts to rescue elephants anywhere in Sub-Sahara Africa.

We have created awareness among thousands of interested parties through television interviews, magazine interviews, newspaper interviews, social media, radio spots, the publication of three scholarly papers and fund raisers. We have also established rapport at high levels within the Republic of Botswana, home to the world's last big herd. Presently, we have created a plan to rescue a large herd of elephants who will be shot by hunters unless they are moved. This has required several months of intense work and negotiation; yet we believe we shall win this battle and save them all.
