Promoting Elephant Conservation through Research and Education

World Elephant Centre [WEC] is developing a major world class interpretation facility focused on elephants – their evolution, current ecological relationships, the pressure on their populations through hunting and land use intensification and the conservation and management actions necessary for their survival. The purpose is to bring global attention to the elephant and the challenges faced in managing this iconic species.
