Asian Elephant Conservation Fund: The Asian Elephant Conservation Fund solicits project proposals for the conservation of the Asian elephant (Elephas maximus) throughout its range. In 1997, with awareness of the increasing threat to the welfare of the already endangered Asian elephant, The Asian Elephant Conservation Act was signed into law. The Act provides for the conservation of Asian elephants by supporting conservation programs in countries within the range of Asian elephants, and the projects of persons with demonstrated expertise in the conservation of Asian elephants. The Asian Elephant Conservation Fund supports projects that promote conservation of Asian elephants and their habitats through: â¿¢Applied research on elephant populations and their habitats, including surveys and monitoring; â¿¢Activities that result in fewer wild elephants being removed from the wild, reduce demand in consumer countries for ivory and other body parts, and prevent illegal killing of elephants; â¿¢Development and execution of elephant conservation management plans; â¿¢Compliance with applicable treaties and laws that prohibit or regulate the taking or trade of elephants or regulate the use and management of elephant habitat; â¿¢Conservation education and community outreach; â¿¢Enhanced protection of at-risk elephant populations; â¿¢Efforts to decrease human-elephant conflict; â¿¢Habitat conservation and management, including improved protected area management in important elephant ranges; â¿¢Strengthening local capacity to implement conservation programs; â¿¢Transfrontier elephant conservation; and â¿¢Wildlife inspection, law enforcement, and forensics skills. Support will also be given to projects that enhance the knowledge of decision makers and other stakeholders. These include legislators, teachers, school children, journalists, tourists, non-governmental organizations, and private sector organizations or businesses in order to strengthen their ability to positively influence wildlife conservation, management, legislation, policy, and finance; and to harmonize these with other national policies. Proposed project should occur within the range of the Asian elephant, or, if work is to be conducted outside of the range, the proposal should show a clear relevance to Asian elephant conservation. Applied research projects should address specific management needs and actions, and threats from emerging issues such as disease, poaching, or climate change that affect the species and its habitats.
