With more than 25,000 African elephants being killed each year for their ivory tusks, The Nature Conservancy is working with partners to expand and equip wildlife security teams, including Ranger Dogs.
Your donation made here will go to our Elephant Protection Fund which provides essential needs for Ranger Dogs—and their human handlers—including these three canine heroes in Kenya. Watch a video »
