Forest elephants are beautiful, unique animals who keep many of Africa's forest ecosystems healthy. Sadly, forest elephant populations are in trouble and they are now classified as Critically Endangered by the IUCN.
Their habitat is disappearing as it's converted for agriculture, cut up for roads, and degraded by human activity.
But, it's not too late to save them.
The Elephant Crisis Fund is protecting forest elephants by supporting projects to stop poaching, improve law enforcement, maintain elephant strongholds, and ensure human-elephant coexistence.
Help create a safer world for forest elephants by spreading the word on social media and donating to the Elephant Crisis Fund this August 12 for #WorldElephantDay.
