Olivia and Oliver have partnered with The Amboseli Trust for Elephants as this is a program that is very close to our hearts. Miranda, our founder, spent an extended period of time in Kenya and fell in love with the elephants. Proceeds of the elephant mat goes to the Trust, which aims to ensure the long-term conservation and welfare of Africa’s elephants in the context of human needs and pressures through scientific research, training, community outreach, public awareness, and advocacy.
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. Please click here to view mat.
