Today there are less than 450,000 African elephants left in the wild and they are under constant pressure from human impact. African elephants are listed by CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) as Threatened, Endangered by the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature), and Threatened by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Tembo Preserve Foundation is proud to partner with a select team of organizations whose tireless work researching, conserving, and advocating for Africa’s wild elephants is truly inspirational. Their extensive knowledge of wild elephant social behavior will serve as a guide to providing the most dynamic, stimulating and naturalistic experience for Tembo elephants.
Conservation touches every aspect of the Tembo Preserve Foundation’s mission and management. In Africa, the Foundation supports the vital elephant conservation work of our partners. At home, the Foundation is committed to minimizing waste and consumption of natural resources and protecting the Preserve’s 4,900 acres of open space.
