Elephants DC is dedicated to ending the ivory trade and advancing elephant well-being.


Our Team

We are resolved to save elephants from extinction for future generations. We defend elephants' right to exist in freedom and safety as the ancient guardian species of the earth. We are composed of volunteers from across America fighting to ensure the elephant species survive mass acts of extinction currently underway in Africa at a rate of one killed every 15 minutes. We are currently accepting resumes to join our team ahead of January 1, 2020. Kindly send your resume and a cover letter via email to

Our History

Elephants DC has worked at the local, state, federal and international levels to advocate for the elephants without compromise since 2013. We successfully led the citizen-effort to end all ivory and rhino horn sales in 2014 across the State of New Jersey and the ban on ‘trophy’ imports of endangered species into the Garden State in 2016. In December 2018, a three-year effort for the passage of Nosey’s Law came to fruition with passage in New Jersey which bans the use of elephants, and fellow “exotic” animals from being used in roadside shows and traveling circuses.

Our Mission

"E" is for Elephant — not Extinction. Elephants DC is dedicated to ending the ivory trade worldwide & advancing elephant well-being.  Serving as a media watchdog, Elephants DC fights every day to end all ivory sales at home & worldwide while advancing elephant well-being. We defend elephants from wild-caught trade & blood ivory commerce. From state laws to international treaties, we decry, rebuke & reject ‘mechanisms’ and ‘conservation’ policies paving the way to profitability at the cost of elephant extinction.
