The African continent and its wildlife have been under assault for decades. The financial rewards from wildlife products have lured sophisticated, transnational organized crime syndicates to orchestrate ivory, rhino horn and wildlife poaching and smuggling. In addition, human-wildlife conflict has created deep resentment in many rural communities to harm or kill their wildlife. Poverty runs rampant in these same areas creating more conflict between man and animal. Not to mention, the increasing continent-wide bush meat trade and an exponential growth of livestock trade in Africa, both continue to push wildlife and ecosystems to the brink. Conservation is a war we are losing.

A GLOBAL PROBLEM

The African continent and its wildlife have been under assault for decades.

In addition, human-wildlife conflict has created deep resentment in many rural communities to harm or kill their wildlife.

IMPACT & VISION STATEMENT

Music is our medium. Music transcends and unites. ROCK THE ELEPHANT® (RTE) is a global platform for people, companies, organizations and philanthropists to announce major funding commitments and campaigns to address the wildlife crisis taking place in Africa and around the globe. Within this realm, RTE reignites a visceral connection to nature with people all over the planet. The primal beauty of wild things and wild places drive us and our mission.

RTE brings the demise of wildlife and ecosystems to the forefront of public consciousness. Our events are curated to be powerful, visceral experiences projected to people around the planet at a pinnacle moment in the history of our environment, our wildlife, and our humanity. We are in pole position to activate the zeitgeist.

The situation in Africa is complex and with our NGO partners, our objective is to end poaching, human-wildlife conflict, and poverty. ROCK THE ELEPHANT® will shine a light on criminal organizations, terrorist groups, and the corrupt who prey on the impoverished and harm and kill what remains of Africa’s wildlife. Let this be the beginning of the end of the decimation of our wildlife.
