Our Impact

Established in 2010, the International Elephant Project is a project of Wildlife Conservation International, a multinational non-profit organisation that has contributed over AUD$31 million to conservation projects across Indonesia and South-East Asia.

This incredible achievement would not be possible without the support and generosity of the many thousands of supporters around the world who have shared in our vision that Asian elephants will live in their natural habitat in secure and viable populations.

Our annual Impact Report celebrates these achievements and highlights the progress we are making not only for Critically Endangered Asian elephants, but also for Critically Endangered orangutans, tigers and indigenous forest communities.

Our Impact in 2022-23

Over the past year, the International Elephant Project has continued in its mission to ensure the survival of Asian elephants and to promote the welfare of all individuals within rainforest ecosystems. Together with its sister projects The Orangutan Project, International Tiger Project and Forests for People, a further AUD$5 million has been contributed to conservation projects across Borneo, Sumatra and Laos.

This funding has:

  • ensured the ongoing protection of 554 wild elephants in key ecosystems;
  • supported the rescue, treatment and release of 74 elephants;
  • provided employment for 80 wildlife protection rangers to patrol and protect critical elephant habitat; and 
  • secured the protection of 918,954 hectares of elephant habitat.

We are proud to share our key outcomes over the past 12 months as we continuously strive to secure a sustainable future for Critically Endangered Asian elephants and the habitats in which they live. 

Thank you to all of our donors who have supported us this year. Your kindness and generosity helps us to continue our vital conservation work. Only by working together can we achieve meaningful change.
