the problem is the poachers , the bigger problem are the consumers, the greed of the greedy, seeking by what ever means it takes to fill the demand for the white organic gold. Certain races hold it dear to their society and will kill what ever creature necessary to fill that greed. Sad our world is governed and controlled by humans.

I recommend supporting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya. They have been doing wonderful work saving, raising and successfully re-introducing many orphaned elephants into the wild. They are also active in efforts to find and remove poachers' snares that maim and kill elephants as well as other wildlife. Check out their website for lots of great info on their amazing work

What charity can people donate to, to go towards protection of elephants?

Time to reflect on how actually evil, human kind has become.

@Robert Warner True for many, maybe even most. But, as some of these pictures show, not for all.
