The Elephant Society is an organisation that is determined to end illegal wildlife trade and to abolish acts of poaching. We hope to achieve this through education of the importance of conservation, informing of the harm that the illegal wildlife trade causes and fund raising for organisations working on the ground in East Africa and Asia to protect endangered species. The Elephant Society is an anti-poaching and conservation charity based in Hong Kong with a particular interest in the conservation of African Elephants in East Africa. TES were formed in November 2014 to help raise awareness against the poaching of elephants and rhinos, two species that will be extinct in this generation if nothing is done to halt the demand for their tusk. A large portion of the work that is done at The Elephant Society is to educate the population of the harms that poaching and illegal ivory trade has on both the animals and communities both at the source and at the point of sale. With Hong Kong being the largest consumer of illegal ivory in the world, the issue hits very close to home.
HKDR was founded in 2003 for the specific purpose of saving dogs and puppies from the Hong Kong Government’s Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) Animal Management Centres. The organisation has cared for and re-homed more than 7,500 dogs while being largely funded by private donations, sales of HKDR merchandises and fundraising events. HKDR is proud to be a No Kill Organisation, meaning that no dog under its care will be euthanised for any reason other than when it is the only humane option.
