Double the Value of Your Donation and Together We Can Make a Difference

Normally your $45 gift would provide one-half hour of flight time, but thanks to the matching gift, you will make possible one hour of flight time which searches 75 miles, as your $45 will be matched dollar for dollar. $625 will buy one drum of gas, 7 hours of flight time, search 525 miles and our donor will match your contribution so that Tsavo Trust can buy two drums of gas = 14 hours of flight time and search 1050 miles.

Every bit helps!
For example:

  • $10 gift matched = 14 minutes of flight time and 16.6 miles protected
  • $25 gift matched = 34 minutes of flight time and 41.6 miles protected
  • $90 gift matched = 2 hours flight time and 150 miles protected


A generous donor has challenged the many supporters of the International Elephant Foundation to match her contribution up to $7,500 – 12 drums of Aviation Fuel, 84 hours of flight time – by Endangered Species Day, May 16, 2015.

Striving to protect Tsavo National Park’s large “Tuskers” is an enormous challenge but Tsavo Trust has been providing regular aerial coverage over the vast and largely road-less expanse where elephants with the iconic large tusks, both male and female, reside. Flying a total of 38,482 miles over 515 hours in 2014, poaching “Hot Spot” zones and areas where the known large “Tuskers” frequent were monitored and potential poachers watched which resulted in the decline in elephant poaching in the second half of 2014. The future of this program is now in jeopardy due to a lack of funds to purchase aviation fuel. Click for Video
