How COVID-19 Hurts Elephants

One of the words we keep hearing these days is "uncertain". We live in "uncertain times", the future of businesses is "uncertain", and even the future of conservation is "uncertain". With this uncertainty comes a need for people to understand how our world is changing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

10 Things We Are Grateful for this #Giving Tuesday

Your support means so much, especially in this difficult time when worries are high and individual sacrifice is so great. COVID-19 is hitting both Africa and Asia hard not only taking a human toll but since tourism is at a halt everywhere, much needed, and anticipated income is no longer available to governments and communities which then limits their conservation, education, and protection efforts for animals and habitats. We need your help now more than ever and hope that you consider a gift to IEF on this "Giving Tuesday".

Conservation and Research Grant Update

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, IEF will not be soliciting proposals for our Conservation and Research grant program on our annual time frame at this time. Please follow our web site for further news and information.
