Last year up to 36,000 elephants were killed for their ivory. 1 life lost every 15 minutes.
At the current rate of poaching African Elephants could face extinction in the wild by 2025.
Support the DSWT’s iWorry campaign and be a part of a global effort to protect and preserve elephants.
iWorry is a campaign created by
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT).
The DSWT is a front-line organisation working every day in the field to protect Africa’s wildlife and habitats. We are not traditionally a campaigning organisation, but the severity of the danger caused by the escalating ivory trade will only be countered if we all stand up for elephants together.
As long as there is a market for ivory, elephants will be cruelly killed for their tusks.
The DSWT iWorry campaign aims to raise awareness of the illicit ivory trade and it’s devastating impact on elephant populations. Demand for ivory has grown significantly in recent years. Presently, one kilo of ivory can be worth up to USD $2,000. The increasing value of ivory, frequently referred to as white gold has attracted the attention of organised criminal networks and ivory has even been used to fund terrorist organisations. It is estimated that up to 36,000 elephants are being killed annually to satisfy this growing demand.
