Organize a March


We raised our collective voices for Appendix 1 but it failed to pass at CoP17. Still, some progress for elephants and rhinos was made at the international wildlife trade conference.

CoP17 Recap

We mobilize people around the world to March Against Extinction and demand governments take action to stop the poaching of elephants and rhinos and end the trade in ivory and rhino horn.

In light of global corruption driving injustice toward animals and humans alike, we further demand transparency and accountability from governments on behalf of Justice for All and Justice for Earth.

More than 130 cities around the world participated in the 2016 Global March for Elephants and Rhinos.
“According to experts, these marches keep political pressure on leaders to protect the world’s largest land animal.”

Good news for elephants? Ivory prices plummet.

We’re building a movement on behalf of Earth’s last wild elephants and rhinos. Over 130 cities marched in 2016, raising awareness, generating global media attention on the crisis, and keeping political pressure on world leaders to protect our endangered wildlife.


Supporting Community-Based Conservation

Shubert Mwarabu is a phenomenal and effective activist on behalf of wildlife (specifically elephants) in Tanzania, with a keen understanding of community advocacy. In June 2017, he embarked on a journey to the United States as a YALI (Young African Leaders Initiative) fellow from Tanzania. GMFER is proud to have played a pivotal role in helping Shubert realize his big dreams.



Actions to End the Trade

We mobilize timely actions to pressure governments, world leaders and businesses to end the trade. Recent campaigns coordinated with our partners aimed to pressure Hong Kong to ban the ivory trade, South Africa to maintain a ban on rhino horn trade, and Yahoo Japan to stop the online sale of ivory.
