Save the African Elephant
Tide For Tusks was established to raise awareness for poaching of African elephants and promote a deeper understanding of the trafficking of endangered wildlife.
Our primary goals are to fund the efforts for elephant conservation in partnership with the African Wildlife Trust and support scholarly research for undergraduate, graduate, and post graduate studies at The University of Alabama.
Working with the African Wildlife Trust and Ivory Orphans in Tanzania is extremely important and makes Tide for Tusks unique among other mascot conservation programs. Integrating scholarly research and service learning projects that best communicate and bring about awareness and conservation for the African elephant it at the heart of Tide for Tusks. Through research and hands on activities students will have the opportunity to engage in field assessments that will result in more and higher quality learning opportunities all focused on saving the African elephant. Join us and help save this gentle giant! Care. Share. Give!
We can do something! We can use our university mascot, combined with our considerable intellectual and social capital, to raise awareness about poaching and to support worldwide conservation efforts for the African elephant.
We cannot allow the animal that our beloved mascot represents to disappear from the plains of Africa. Like us on Facebook and share your "Tuskie" to show your support for saving the elephants! Your gift will help provide conservation and scholarly research to help save the African elephant.
