Previous Projects

The Bodhi Tree Foundation launched the S.A.F.E. Campaign in 2014 with four original beneficiaries. We are  proud to have distributed over $30,000 in grants to designated elephant conservation projects in 2014/15.

  • African Wildlife Foundation

    The African Wildlife Foundation has been working to conserve elephants and other wildlife in the cross-border region of Niger, Burkina Faso, and Benin known as the "Regional Parc W" landscape. This area is an important biodiversity hot spot and home to an estimated 5,000 elephants out of a total of 7,000 elephants remaining in all of West Africa. The S.A.F.E. grant helped support the regular patrolling activities of rangers in Regional Parc W for the purposes of safeguarding elephants, recording information on elephant sightings and acquiring other data. » Visit website
  • The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

    Project Amu is one of DSWT's largest and most ambitious projects to date. Amu Ranch covers 60,000 acres of beautiful yet fragile lowland forests and savannah woodlands within the Lamu district on Kenya's north coast. The S.A.F.E. grant provided Project Amu with additional funds needed to continue its ongoing core operations including infrastructure maintenance, security track clearance, aerial monitoring and surveillance, ranger and security patrols to curb poaching, and securing habitat and wildlife corridors within Amu Ranch.

  • Save the Elephants

    In the Samburu region, the STE community outreach team meets every week in different areas to bring warriors, elders and officials together as elephant defenders. The S.A.F.E. grant enabled this new project to expand across the region, increase the number of reformed poachers and help the Samburu county government employ them, ideally as rangers. » Visit website
  • WildAid

    WildAid is prioritizing demand reduction for elephant ivory. It is uniquely placed in China to deliver a high-impact campaign, leveraging a network of pro-bono media and the highest level of support built up over a decade working in the region. The S.A.F.E. grant enabled WildAid to increase distribution of existing and new elephant materials across numerous media platforms, including a new series of elephant billboards featuring high profile Chinese celebrity ambassadors for placement across Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou in locations such as airport terminals and train stations.
