Volunteers are the backbone of an organization. They provide time, energy and talents that can produce game-changing and historical events. They generate enthusiasm and interest that help to create a positive image of the organization. Elephanatics has been lucky enough to find some of these people, but we are always in search of more talent!
Last year Vancouver joined 137 cities and over 50,000 people worldwide who marched to raise awareness of the elephant and rhino poaching crisis facing these two species and to call for an end to the ivory and rhino horn trade that is pushing them rapidly towards extinction. Join us here!

Did you know it is still legal to buy and sell ivory in Canada? Both African and Asian elephants may be extinct in the wild in our lifetime, mainly due to poaching.
Elephanatics created the #ivoryfreecanada campaign to help keep our elephants alive.
Elephanatics wrote a letter to the Canadian government, requesting a ban on all domestic trade of elephant ivory. Over 80 Canadian and international scientists, politicians and animal organizations have co-signed the letter!
