Clinton Global Initiative

About This Project

The Clintons have worked to combat elephant poaching through the family’s foundation. In 2013, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton brought together various conservation groups to partner on a new $80 million programme to fight elephant poaching through the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI).

Such a global crackdown may be necessary to save the world’s largest land animals from extinction. This year, the Great Elephant Census – a thorough, groundbreaking survey across 18 countries – found that populations of savanna elephants have fallen by 30% in just seven years. The news was even worse than many conservationists feared. But the situation is even more dire for forest elephants.
