Elephants are endlessly fascinating creatures: intelligent, powerful, caring… They’re one of the world’s most loved animals.
But they also face serious threats to their existence in parts of Africa and Asia from problems such as poaching for their tusks to sell in the illegal wildlife trade, habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict.
The world is full of remarkable and beautiful animals, each too valuable to lose, from elephants to tiny termites.
It’s not too late to help them all. Change is possible.
“I’m excited about the New Big 5 project. It says something positive about our world that people are now more interested in photographing wildlife than killing it. Of course, we have a long way to go in wildlife conservation. I support this project in the hope it can bring more attention to the many threats that animals face.”
