Passage of Promise
Amboseli elephant herds with Kilimanjaro in the background. Proceeds from the sale of each of these prints go to Amboseli Trust for Elephants. ATE’s research arm, the Amboseli Elephant Research Project, has made many important contributions to elephant research over the years. The knowledge gained from the AERP team has profoundly altered the way we think about, conserve and manage elephant populations. Our research has highlighted the ethical implications of dealing with sentient, long-lived, intelligent and social complex animals and our knowledge base provides powerful and authoritative support to elephant conservation and advocacy campaigns worldwide. For more than four decades AERP’s presence has helped ensure the survival of the elephants as well as the Amboseli ecosystem.
AERP research covers many areas including: social organization, behavior, demography, ecological dynamics, spatial analyses and mapping, communication, genetics, human-elephant interactions and cognition. Our long-term datasets underpin all these research topics.
A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the Amboseli Trust for Elephants. It was started by Cynthia Moss, an American who is well known in the conservation world for coordinating groundbreaking research into elephant communication, intelligence and social behaviour. Now the organisation coordinates outreach to educate local communities, monitors poaching crime, and runs research programs in the greater Amboseli area. This an area in Kenya, at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, where elephants congregate in high numbers. A recent continental elephant census has revealed that elephant numbers have fallen more dramatically in the last five years than ever before in history, which makes the work the folks are doing at ATE more important than ever.
