The Amboseli Trust for Elephants will establish a secure source of long-range funding for approved elephant research projects. The income from the Trust may be used to fund (in whole or in part) research, field testing and implementation of research related projects, as well as the dissemination of the research results to further its mission. The Trust will enable the field researchers to focus their energies on their project and relieve them of the burden of continued fund raising.
"Echo (pictured here) taught us much about elephants,
about leadership, about maternal care, survival and about some of the concepts
that are not supposed to be applied to animals: patience, loyalty, love and
joy." -- Cynthia Moss, Echo of the Elephants
