At the heart of our activities and everything we do are our values.
They define the character of EAL and guide us in how we make decisions.
Our values are:
We are here for the elephants, not for our ego
We work, we struggle, we give and we fight for one reason only: to protect elephants worldwide and to correct the faulty perception the world still has about the elephant’s unique mind.
No to elephant’s exploitation. As simple as that.
It’s time to evolve, to recognize our mistakes, to acknowledge the pain we have been inflicting for centuries to one of the most sensitive and intelligent creatures on Earth.
“United we stand, divided we fall”
We believe in an important saying: “United we stand, divided we fall”.
Collaboration and a more cohesive international front are crucial to protect elephants. We strive to create mutually fulfilling relationships and partnerships.
China is a Partner
Regarding the ivory’s issue, we like to see China as potentially a very important partner and it’s not our intention to judge, or to point the finger at anybody. The responsibilities behind the elephant’s tragedy are multiple and shared by many countries and entities. Governments in Africa and along the whole ivory trade’s chain MUST show less corruption and more transparency and commitment.
We’re proud of what we do.
