The main goal of our campaigns is to denounce, to the International audience, the situations in which animals or ecosystems in which they live, are in situations of difficulty or danger so that local institutions can intervene to solve the problems.
As reported in our statute, AnimalsTrust NPO does not only deal species in trouble, but also domestic animals, insects, and of any living thing is in difficulty and in danger.
For this reason it is essential for the success of our International campaigns the cooperation of all the people, who care about the environment and the living species that inhabit it, to create an international network of partners who can actively collaborate with us for both report the species or individual animals in need, both for work actively with competent institutions in different countries.
We are talking about elephants but on elephants name, we want to take action to save all wild African animals: rhinos, leopards, giraffes, lions, cheetahs, mountain gorillas, hippopotamus, zebras, cape buffalos.
Elephants have existed on this planet since millions of years ago, many years before man appearance on earth and now only two species remain: the African and the Asian elephant. Now, the biggest land animals around the world are being threatened because of the international demand for their tusks.
African elephants are currently found in about 35 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Once reaching 1.3 million African elephants in 1979, there are only an estimated around 500,000 left in the world, as a result of the ivory trade.
Every year, thousands of elephants are brutally killed for their ivory. Some estimate that as many as 7% (35,000) elephants are being poached each year.
The death of the elephants is horrible, poachers and hunters shoot elephants with automatic weapons and cut their tusks with axes and even chainsaws. Tragically, the ivory trade has a long and bloody history.
Elephants are killed for their ivory, which is used for crafts, such as carvings, ornaments, combs, jewelry, etc.
In 2011, CITES reported at least 25,000 African elephants were killed.
In 2012, poaching and illegal ivory seizures reached record highs, since the international ban in 1989.

Our goal is to promote a comprehensive census and monitoring of the main animal African species, starting from those most at risk, such as elephants and rhinos.
