A campaign led by IFAW to support business and media influencers in pressuring governments to enact a ban on ivory sales. This includes a U.S. campaign with 450,000 signatures on a petition asking Obama to ban the domestic ivory trade.

Founded in 1969, IFAW saves individual animals, animal populations and habitats all over the world. With projects in more than 40 countries, this organization focuses its efforts on protecting animals and populations from cruelty and disaster-influenced suffering, commercial exploitation and habitat degradation.

Through collaborative partnerships, we support innovative projects that protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities. Our work is divided into six main program areas – Wildlands Conservation, Oceans Conservation, Climate Change, Indigenous Rights, Transforming California, and Innovative Solutions.
