We imagine a world where animals have no reason to fear humans
Currently 36,000 elephants are killed every year for their ivory. This includes whole families; mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters. And little babies too. At this rate we expect that elephants have only 12 years remaining to enjoy their natural home. We need to reduce the demand for ivory so that our children can inherit and cherish one of the world’s most magnificent animals in its rightful habitat. And there is an even darker side: the ivory trade has been linked to the funding of terror groups and organized crime. We need to stand together for the elephants and against terror, drugs and trafficking.
Artists Against Ivory is a vibrant fund raising initiative with the purpose of ‘Helping elephants live forever’. It is our ambition to create a powerful voice for elephants through art and education and our mission is to:
Educate people about the ivory trade and raise funds for institutions on the forefront of reducing the ivory trade. When you wear the latest fashion trends from Artists Against Ivory you help create that powerful voice for the elephants
We work with artists who create exquisite wearable art to celebrate the majesty of the elephant and also make a profound statement against the ivory trade.
