Elephants Without Borders is a non-profit, tax-exempt, registered organization in the Republic of Botswana. Registered in the Deeds Office of Botswana, as the Somarela Trust under number MA 18/2004. Under number 91451 of the Business Names Act, the Trust operates as Elephants Without Borders.
EWB is based in Kazungula, Botswana’s border town where the boundaries of Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe meet along the Zambezi River. EWB operates its’ projects and activities in the southern Africa region of the contiguous wildlife populations range between Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe under the official endorsement and full support of government authorities. Botswana is known for their wildlife conservation successes, this wildlife hot spot is the ideal location for Elephants Without Borders researchers to study the migratory patterns, behavior, and ecology of elephants, wildlife and their habitats. EWB is the region’s leading cross-border research organization focused on elephant conservation and management.
Since elephants don’t use passports, the notion of elephants and conservation without borders is crucial for preserving biodiversity and a healthy landscape. Using African elephants as an inspiration, EWB strives to identify wildlife migratory corridors, secure wild habitats and elevate conservation of all wildlife. The largest mammal that walks the earth is now leading the way to help save vast areas of wild lands and the biodiversity they support.
The great paradox about elephant conservation is that while many African countries are experiencing rapidly declining elephant populations, others have to cope with rising elephant numbers. Both declining and growing elephant numbers present certain problems and concerns.
Botswana has the largest elephant population remaining on the African continent. Ironically, the recovery of this country’s elephant population has led to growing concern about how to manage this large population. Some people are worried that elephants have recovered in greater numbers than the environment can sustain, and there is significant concern over increasing human-elephant conflict.
